We had our site scrape on 11th Nov, and then nothing until this week... Basically to cut a long story short there were some delays with getting approvals for our drains / pipes though City West Water as the Developers did not pass them on for approval earlier. Unfortunately this took approx 1 month to go through and by then Carlisle did not want to do anything else until after Christmas.
Ended up signing our final plans just before Christmas...
In the mean time we had a few small issues.
Firstly, our chosen timber laminate was discontinued. Went in and rechose another similar looking one... Although I think I like this one slightly better. Glen didn't come as he 'trusted' my choice!
Secondly, had to change a couple of kitchen door handles to the smaller size to fit smaller cupboard doors. Somehow this was not picked up on until the last minute and Carlisle tried to charge us a variation fee for it. Got ourselves out of that one though... It should have been picked up by the draftsmen!
Below are a few pics which have been taken since the last update...
Site scrape was carried out on 11th Nov. Here are some pics taken about 1 week later (clearly after some rain). I don't think I ordered any swimming pools... One for the porch
And in the background you might be able to see a super dooper one for the alfresco!
Visit to the block on the 10th Jan found a tap!
AND a water meter!!
We also found a nice pile of dirt in preparation for the drains. This green thing along the front of the block was called a "sediment barrier". Not many people in the estate have one though... so not sure why it is there?
Monday was 43degC, Tuesday night was the hottest night ever... and Tuesday morning (12th Jan) didn't drop below about 34degC... Some time during during that heat they put our pipes in!
