It's worked out quite well because instead of going into the house for a look and being WOWED with heaps of progress and only seeing the big picture, I've been able to cast a more critical eye over things and pick up anything that needs to be addressed with the SS.
So, in keeping it real - highs and the lows remember? Here's what I picked up today...
Ok, so what's with the 2 tone mortar? The middle section of this pillar looks like it's still wet but it was completed over 6 days ago...
And talking about 2 tone, the back of the house (top section) is also more of a standard mortar colour instead of off-white. Looks like it's in a shadow but it's not.
Little tricky to see but there's a crack zig-zagging down the mortar at the bottom of the pillar. Surely not meant to be cracking yet?
I believe this is an expansion joint - however I could see through it??
This is the other side of the expansion joint. Bit hard to see but surely you're not meant to see daylight through it? What's to stop moisture getting in and mould forming on the internal walls?
Noticed big gaps (approx. 10cm) above the laundry door and French Doors on Playroom. Don't know if it's meant to be like this for a reason but wouldn't the door sit in the door jam? Maybe they put some kind of cladding around it?
Brickwork at the base of our bifolds. One side is neat and lines up with woodwork. The other side, as you can see has gaps and doesn't line up at all??
Here's the big gaping, not so straight brickwork! What's the go? All other brickwork is great!
Some of the fluffy stuff (yep, technical term) coming out of bifold door frame...
And while I'm documenting everything, I also noticed there are no powerpoint plates set up in any of the bathrooms (which makes me think this has been done for a reason - perhaps waiting till vanities are in to get heights right) and the 2 powerpoints in our main bedroom are not there.
So there you go... nothing I'm losing sleep over but hope to get sorted soon. Especially the weirdo brickwork around bifolds and the roof tiles.
