Start Date

"Early to late next week" - that's what we've been told is the excavation start date. Yippee !!!

Final Documents

All plans, contract,colour selections, etc...were signed off & posted back Wednesday. Thank goodness all the paperwork is over! So much time taken on sorting out all the details.

And a HUGE HUGE thankyou to our CSR, Sally who made all the required changes when asked & apart from a hiccup here & there, kept track of everything. Now that was no small feat! I would recommend her to anybody wanting a super efficient, friendly, conscientious CSR. She deserves a BONUS !!!

Now all we need to know is the excavation start date ! Hopefully in 2 weeks, from what we've been told.

We'd lurv to get 2 months of construction done before the 5 week xmas shutdown.

Apparently the EB surveyors were on site Thursday & spoke to the demo crew. Wonder why they turned up, if the peg out was booked for the following Tuesday ?

LATEST UPDATE : Demo guys have advised that they will be finished Tuesday 10am. So it seems they will be working on their RDO. Hopefully they told the same to the surveyors and peg out will start on Tuesday as planned.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Day 3 came and went and they're still not finished ! Unbelievable. How long does it take to knock down a 2 bedroom house ??? Mounds of earth, rubbish, holes & machinery still on site. They started almost 2 weeks ago !

There goes Tuesday's peg-out.
