Oh I thought the plaster would be done before lock up? Our SS said they would be starting the plaster soon. I haven’t heard anything about lock up yet. Although…

Excuse the terrible photo! We have plaster! How long does the plaster usually take to go up?

$21k that’s a lot! I’m dreading our landscaping, I think it will be just grass and more grass for some time.

Evaporative cooling

I agree that is definitely when you need it most. Look like we might be adding a split system too..

I’d call the reception and explain you want to speak to your BC’s manager and don’t take no for an answer. No reply for weeks is completely unacceptable.

I’m also hoping I don’t regret the evap.. I don’t like the heat to much and I’m worried about the sticky feeling you get from some evap cooling systems. Although…

That’s terrible Naama, I think people go around specifically targets new builds as they know there is obviously no one home.

Oh I haven’t heard anything about that? Our SS was on leave for the last 2 weeks and I only found out because I called him and his voicemail said…

Awesome, that’s ridiculous! Do they want you to send it via carrier pigeon too.. I wonder why they require it by cheque? Where do you have to deliver it too?
