Australia Day Long Weekend and we're almost home now. Apparently tiling was completed last week, the garage door has been installed, front retaining wall constructed, some of the down pipes connected and the issues we had with exposed slab caused by the drop in garage height (compared to house) rectified by applying a render to the side of the concrete slab.
This week the plumber(s) and electrician(s) will return to do all the fit-offs. We imagine this means power points, switches, down lights, other lights, electrical appliances installed; taps, sinks, basins, waste, toilets, heating/cooling systems installed; down pipes and drainage on-site attended to and all connections completed. Glass splash backs will also need to be installed at some stage.
Also a quick update re some of our other issues.
1. Slab rectification works: CG have already had the original design engineer back out to our site to inspect the slab. The engineer was not satisfied (as we knew would be the case) and will document what should be done and the detail to which these works must be completed, so that CG can arrange to rectify appropriately. This is a great development and we are thankful for the way CG are finally managing the issue. We hope these works are completed in a timely manner and do not affect our completion date. This is what we pushed to avoid all along.
2. Bulkhead issues: some bulkheads need to be rectified and the bulkheads re-painted. We imagine this will be done next week but will need to confirm.
