I’ll just address some of the previous issues, before I start whining again.
The Internets – on hold till we get certificate of occupancy, but #1 son has a contact who gave me advice on what to get. Hint: not the NBN.
Electricity – rang the wholesaler and started threatening to sue for compensation – worked a miracle. Power on within 2 days. Should have done that sooner.
Watering system. Apparently they can manage a tap. No further dramas.
The amount of time this is taking is unbelievable.
The bitching on site is something else to behold – to the point I put my big girls pants on and went up last week and let one of the teams go, I couldn’t take another phone call. Everyone was involved in everybody’s business which, incidentally was none of their business. They were all calling me telling me what the others were doing wrong. There were threatened walk-offs. I was done, they were gone.
The roof. OMG this roof is going to be the death of me. Theres been delays, again with the blame game between people, missed trucks, missed building slots, and more expense because of it all. The last delay excuse was a gem – the guy who was meant to pick up the roof (for this week) had a sleep in his truck, a tree fell on it. Here’s the thing – in this day and age why is he the only truck driver in the world who doesn’t have a mobile phone, therefore he couldn’t contact anyone including his boss to explain that he wasn’t going to make pickup. I’d be asking for photographic evidence if I was his boss. I would imagine we will get 2/3rd’s of the roof up next week, if not then questions will be asked, as the next opportunity is end of June/early July. It should take 3 to 4 days according to the experts, I’m being told 2 to 3 weeks. They have 5 days and thats it.
