Gap at the architrave joins

Painters probably used a putty instead of a plaster on the joins, chippy may not have glued the mitres either, houses also move 30mm over there life time

Delivery of wall frame, sub floor joist and roof truss

Yup deliveries crane truck, and yes anything that needs to go further out and up needs a franna. The power lines the operators will navigate those unless there a cowboy.

Tolerances for rectified porcelain tiles

There's no building codes behind tiles? Only in wet areas? What's your question exactly? Why so much $$$$? Laying tiles is painful at the best of times
