We are under way again with the building process. We owe many thanks to Trevor (our new plumber) who took up our fight with the developers over their sewerage work and saved us probably close to $20000 if we had to pay for this.
We are already seeing the dividends in using a smaller building company with our project. Chris, Rob and Vince have been great to deal with during the last three months where we have had issues with the Midland Redevelopment Authority and the sewerage. One last set of thanks goes to Steve Fitzpatrick from Your Building Brokers who has given us great advice and stepped in when needed. He was instrumental in sorting out our issues with getting our building licence through the MRA which were proving to be very difficult to deal with.
It is great to see a lot of activity at the block lastweek (even if it was to fix the sewerage). We were very pleased with the speed the developer and original contractor moved on this work and had it completed. Well Done on your response.
Today I went down expecting to see just tidy up work but to my surprise they have already dug the trenches for the footings and done a lot of set up work. Our Builders are great to work with and are keen to get the job moving which is quite different to my previous experiences in building our houses.
We look forward to the slab going down this week and walls not long after….
