Day 25 - The Report

Today we heard back from our Site Manager Clive. He told us that the frame should be ready to go up in the next couple of days....he also got us excited as he is hoping to have the roof on by the end of this month! We'll believe it when we see it.

We also got our slab report back from our private inspector - Houspect.

It was was quite thorough...and more importantly easy to understand and read. They also supplied a library of photos which was great....in summary there wasn't too much to fret over. In fact Clive had picked up on many of the same faults when he conducted an inspection of the slab with Metricon's inspectors.

Below is a summary report from Houspect;

1. There is a hump in the slab ranging from approximately 10 to 15 millimetres in the dining room near the study wall area, and midway along the east side.
2. There is a low point midway along the study on the garage side ranging from approximately 5 to 10 millimetres deep.
The slab surface levels need attention. The Building Commission’s Guide to Standards and Tolerances, Section 2.08 Levelness of timber and concrete floors states; Except where documented otherwise, new floors are defective if within the first 24 months they differ in level by more than 10 mm in any room or area, or more than 4 mm in any 2 metre length. The overall deviation of floor level to entire building footprint shall not exceed 20 millimetres.
3. The side fence on the western boundary is falling down.

So all in all we are hoping to move on to the next stage of our build this week...more pics to follow.
