I realise it's been a long time since any updates have been posted. Main reason for that is that any change from this point has been minor - they seem to be moving at a rate approximately resembling fitting one tap per day, or something to that effect. It all adds up, but yes, we've only just got some render done on the front, and a driveway has now gone in.
So here's the latest progress shot:
Actually the other reason for lack of information is because that's exactly what they've been providing me - a fortnight ago I didn't get a weekly call from the site supervisor, and then last week I didn't either - making it three weeks since I'd heard from them. So I called them, and they had very little to really say. Also tried contacting my person at head office - nothing. No replies, no returned calls or emails - I really have no idea what's going on.
When I did manage to briefly speak to the supervisor they still won't give any hints on a handover date, and it doesn't look like being before Easter, which will push it out even further. Oh, and despite somehow managing to keep the crossover intact for the entire build process up until this point, when do they manage to put a nice pothole in it? Yeah, when pouring the driveway. Good going!
So right now it's getting rather frustrating being told very close to nothing.
Oh yeah, and fencing guy? I approved/paid for the fence on the left to be done some time in January, I thought it was supposed to be done by mid-late Feb. As you can see, there's no fence - but he's also completely dropped off the radar. No returns to emails, phone calls, nothing - he was supposed to be chasing up the other neighbours to get permission to put fences up. Haven't heard anything back on that either. IT's basically like he too has dropped off the face of the planet.
