How incredibly fast was that?!! We scheduled in our first walkthrough for yesterday with our Construction supervisor, which gave us all an opportunity to put a face to the name as well as have a good walkthrough of both ground floor and first floor areas. It was an incredible feeling to be in a house or the skeletal of it that we have been looking at on paper almost daily for the last 11 months! It all does seem so surreal and funnily the rooms seemed smaller than we had anticipated. Our CS picked up on it and said it always feels that way at this stage till the plaster goes up and finally when it gets painted it really opens up!
There wasn’t much I could pick on but had a few questions:
- The alfresco has no roof trusses as they are waiting for scaffolding to go down before they will get that.
- The void at rear has frames on the upper level for plaster wall. There was error on the contract drawings and it hadn’t been passed on to the CS as that area was upgraded to glass balustrades.
- Upper level windows will go in once the scaffolding comes down after roof has been installed.
Our CS advised he is finishing off and moving to another role within PD next week and we will have another CS taking over. I’m a little apprehensive about the change but he went on explaining that he has booked in contractors for the next couple of months. Tried getting out of him when we were looking at finishing and he completely went around the topic without answering!
Darbecca sent the same consultant that inspected our slab for frame inspection this morning. few minutes into the inspection he turned around and said he the carpenters had done a pretty impressive job! What a relief that was to hear from someone who knows what they are looking for! He did find some issues which can be easily rectified, about 14 of them. Have forwarded that through to our CS hoping to hear back from him before work starts on our roof.
