Week 21: List for independent inspection on Jul 17

We are going to have independent building inspection by Howard Ryan on Jul 17. The below is our list of concern which based on issues we had during our build so far. If you have some info and experience in this regards, please let me know what else  I also should pay more attention

1) Frame: the following areas  were defected and then were fixed by manufacturer and Fowler
1.1.  ground floor on the rear
1.2.  the first floor roof
1.3.  French door (to Balcony) area
1.4.  Study Nook’s window area
1.5.  Bed 3’s window area
1.6.  Termination on the bricks (particularly on Study Nook)

2) air-conditioning

2.1  Cutting holes on Retreat’s Robes areas then don’t use these  holes. Recover the holes is good enough?
2.2. Cutting bricks for AC duct required for Family and Dining A/C, then don’t use it so recovering the hole is good enough ?
2.3. the whole A/C installation is good enough?

3) Upstairs Eaves
The reasons: Manufacturer’s mistakes

4) Slab
4.1. Our pearing day suffered rain and broken machine
4.2.  Slap level on Family and Dining

5) Niches
The reasons: all most of niches were   fixed


a) bricks is overhanging slab at the front corner of Garage? and Porch? 

b) check all corner bricks

6.1. Entrance
6.2. Facade brick corner in front of Study Office
6.3. Court yard
6.4. Alfresco
6.5. Balcony

Honestly, I'm very scary about our frame issue and feel I'm over it as we did spend extra 3 weeks for just fixing frame and roof . I'm happy to pay for this independent building inspection to have peaceful mind on our first ever building. Although I am sure there is small things which are need to be rectified from this inspection but I really hope and  really pray for the quality that Fowler have promised.

W19+W20(WedJul 4 --TueJul 10):Ready for Insulation

Sorry for not update on Week 19 (Wed Jun 27 --- Tue Jul 3). However, if you read our Timlines and Build Progress on the right hand side, there is always reporting what have been going on our build!

At the end of our Week 20, yesterday, we were ready for insulation.

It was the first day when scaffolding and rubbish mountain were gone!

Although it takes us 1 day to have insulation, we still need fix here and there. So, we only book for independent building inspection on the earlier next week.

Yesterday, I was so happy with all dreaming electrical changes for our Multiuse room and Laundry. Also, all wanted and wished slightly relocation for electrical items were achieved beyond our dream expectation. Vacaro again and over again wanted to make sure that they were there not only to just complete their job but also to achieve their client satisfaction and to do the job at highest level.
