Site Manager Called Today

Site manager called today (by accident, thought he had another Kylie who is building in the same street - this could get quite confusing as we are both building the Santorini)

He introduced himself (His name is Rob) and said he thought that the site would be scraped on Monday, footings down next day and the slab poured shortly after. That's funny because I have not even been given a start date yet and my new CSC has not even called me so I think I will take that with a grain of salt.

He advised would call me once a week to give me an update on what is happening and should I want to come down and have a look around at any time just give him a call and we could arrange it.

Funny I had been told that the Site Managers do not give out their telephone numbers however he quite freely gave me the number but asked that I don't call him at 1:00am in the morning or on weekends which is fare enough. He told me not to even call my CSC as she wouldn't know what was going on (He didn't need to tell me that).

He did however get a bit touchy when I said I was getting my own Building Inspector in. There was silence and then he said I was throwing away my money and that they had their own Building Inspector. I politely told him I understood that but just wanted to be on the safe side.
I didn't say that I had heard some negative feedback in the last couple of days.

Anyway let's hope that things start moving now and that perhaps by this time next week there is some action happening down at the block. I'm off down there this weekend to put my sign up for the Builders as asked and have a look at all the development that is going on there. Will take some photos as well just to give an overview of the Estate.

I have some family coming down from Queensland for the weekend so I'm going to take my mind off the house for a few days and enjoy myself without stress.

Have a nice weekend all!!!


  1. Great news Kylie, looking forward to seeing some pics. We are heading down on Sunday arvo. to check out things as well, to see if there is any action down our end of the street.

  2. We are also heading down Sunday arvo, to check on the progress of our house.

    Funny how when you said to him the you had your own building inpspector, what his reaction was. After my experience they are worth there weight in gold, plus it is piece of mind that you have a house that is being independently checked, not one that is on there books.
