Bricks Started! - Plumbing Issues 80% Fixed

I'm told the bricks started yesterday, but we didn't get out to the site yesterday as I needed a rest from the weekends cabling! When we visited today we say nearly one whole side of the house is half done. Talk about quick brickwork! Even better there is no red colour showing through the bricks like we were worried about, the brickies are off to a good start and the brick colour looks great!

We noticed the plumber had been out to install the fresh water points in the ensuite toilet/main toilet that he didn't do the first time. All the shower and bath mixers we also installed, but the mixer was put into the wrong spot for the ensuite spa, again another call to the SS for this one.

I also move the air conditioning duct in the lounge room after speaking to the SS today he had no issue with this.

I finished installing the rest of the AV cabling for the home theatre today. I wanted to install the metal brackets that the power points and data points screw into but I was told by the SS to wait as he is waiting for the fixing carpenter to come and straighten the walls and sometimes the brackets get in the way when they are planeing them back. So I'll probably install these on the weekend.

  1. It looks like all of you working there are having a hard time with the plumbing. The plumbing phase in a home building process is definitely quite complicated. And there will always be issues that will arise in every progress made. However, these issues can be avoided if all of you will work hand-in-hand and there is proper communication on every progress done. #Jaye Conaway

  2. This plumbing problem and other issues could’ve been avoided if there was strict supervision on the site. The worker would have worked more carefully on every installation. For example, the plumber should’ve checked if he was doing the right thing before initiating such task. For every mistake made, you are also wasting money and effort. So always be careful and mindful of what you’re doing. Don’t rush things so that you won’t be pressured to work and oversee things. ->Milani Plumbing Drainage & Heating
