Slow week

We had a bit of a slow week this week. After the rain, hail and storms we had last week, I noticed water entering the house from where the stink pipes protrude from the roof as they hadnt been sealed up yet.
I informed our SS on Monday morning and the plumbers came and fixed it immediately which was good.

Nothing on Tuesday and Wednesday we had a bob cat and tipper truck clear and remove the rubble (mainly roof tiles, bricks & Gyprock) from the site.

Nothing Thursday and today the plasterers made a start. It was interesting to see them in action as they use stilts to walk around so they can reach the ceiling easily. It was slightly amusing to see both blokes on their stilts with their boots, boardies and wife beaters on. Most occa looking clowns Ive ever seen. lol.
They left a lot of their gear here so hopefully we might see them back tomorrow, if not Monday. I still think we will be at lock-up by the end of this month

Our kitchen wasnt delivered but I found out that its been manufactured and is waiting for our SS to release it for delivery so its probably a couple of weeks off yet.

We also had an issue with our front door selection. As we fall under a BAL29 for our bush fire rating, the front door we had chosen couldnt be supplied with the 5mm toughened glazing, as opposed to the 5mm standard, mainly due to the curvature of the glass.
Our sales consultant informed us that we would need to change our front door selection, which was disappointing as we had our heart set on our front door which was to match our internal doors so we would have to change them aswell
I checked through the door options and I simply dont like any of the other choices so I thought Id give the fire inspector a call and see what other options we have.
It turns out, as we are getting a security door installed aswell, we can change the standard mesh to the Crimsafe or Invisgard mesh and then get the fire inspector back to approve it later. (at a cost).
The only downside is Masterton dont supply the crimsafe/Invisigard mesh with their security doors so we will have to delete the front screen door from our job and source our own after handover and then get the fire inspector in to approve it.
So we get to keep our favourite door after all :)
