PCI Completed

Finally had our PCI today and received our settlement date. Things were going very well, no issues with our ss. Everything we picked was added, even extra things that our SS picked up.

We started inside and picked a tonne of faults. Simple things from paint blemishes to major issues, like our alfresco stacker door which was installed twisted. 

Externally though was a different story. Nawkaw are still yet to "fix" our bricks, misaligned roof tiles, guttering issues and gaps between the windows frames and bricks. We also still do not have a mailbox or front steps.

Three weeks to fix all this and then we will have settlement.

Something is happening again

It's been a week, and finally something is happening again at the house. The driveway work resumed yesterday, with the formwork and crossover started. Although at midday today - no sign of them completing the job.

There were also people inside installing all our final door handles and locks.

With the builders' "security" fence down (not that it was locked all that often), our place felt a little exposed, so we opted to install the fence early. This was started on Monday and completed yesterday (Tuesday).

Driveway excavated

On Monday, the driveway was excavated and yesterday the sand was delivered. Still no formwork, but we should have a driveway poured either today or tomorrow.

Breaking into August puts our build at the 6 month mark from when work was started back on the 30th of January.
