Jason spoke to our SS this morning who informed him that the power pole was indeed in the incorrect position. Apparently the sub contractors did install it on the WRONG SIDE of our property.
They will be back (today, I believe) to move it to the correct position on the other side of the property.
Not any fault of Metricon's at all but still very frustrating as the appearance of that tree has now been ruined thanks to a mistake that could easily have been avoided if someone had bothered to check that they were installing the pole in the correct place.
I felt like a bit of a nuisance bringing it up but I feel it was something well within my rights to question - we are afterall paying a lot of money to build this house - and clearly questioning it was worth it.
So a good result, I'm very pleased it will be rectified - I really didn't expect it to be moved but I am glad I voiced my displeasure (something I am not actually comfortable doing!).
We have booked a walk through with our SS for Monday week - looking really forward to seeing the bricks up close and personal!
Oh, and I wanted to shout out to our Customer Service contact in the office (you know who you are!) who replied to an email from me at 7.35am this morning - thats dedication!
