So the story for this week was meant to be this:
Cladding painted and QA inspection, then carpenters back to fix whatever came up in the QA report.
What really happened:
Carpenters were onsite Monday (no idea what they did, I havent been onsite at all).
Silence and rain for Tue, Wed, Thu.
Friday - NO rain. No work.
Gyprock was supposed to start this coming week - looks like now it will be the following. This is after originally we were told it was going to start about 2 weeks ago.
At this rate we will be lucky to see it by Xmas let alone anything else before they shut down for who knows how long?
My SS told me shut down is FOUR weeks. Metricon's official answer on their Facebook page (yeah they have one) - is this:
The NSW Building team are on Christmas New Year break from 22 December- 4 January.
Thats a direct quote.
Our original SS told me it depends what stage they are up to and which trades need to be onsite - and that some take a long break, others only public holidays.
SO many conflicting stories!
So I really hope we see something happen over the Dec-Jan period, all this stop start is driving me crazy.
I get that they cant work in the rain - but I would have thought the QA guy could go there at some point this week - does the painting need to be done for him to inspect?? Who knows!
So next weeks timetable is this: Painting Monday & Tuesday, QA Wednesday then ?
Chances are the rain will mess that schedule up too.
Oh - and we still have two small sections of roof, over the study and kitchen projections, that hadn't been done when I was there last so water is still getting in there so I presume they have to be done before gyprock can start..
