Tomorrow marks the day our assigned Site Supervisor (SS) returns to work from holidays. I wasn't going to call him, but as it turns out, I will have to, to sort out the temp fence issue we shouldn't have to pay extra for, since we should have had a slab by now.
Next Monday week (26th January) marks 100 days since our demolition was completed, and yet we still have no site start date. Yes, you read correctly, that is 100 days since demo was COMPLETED.
We have also worked out, that just on the off chance that 'Day 1' of contract happens to fall on 17th Feb (please cross all your fingers and toes that we are well underway by then...), official end of contract day (310 days later) will be Christmas Eve. Something to ponder...
Looks like it will be very close to Christmas before we can move in anyway, especially since we have to wait for the driveway and flooring to go in after handover. Mmmm....Perhaps I wasn't far off when I suggested Easter 2010.
Things would have been so much better had it started on time, 4 -6 weeks after demo, NOT nearly 15.
Oh, and some of our mail is STILL being delivered to the empty block, which should have been redirected!
On a much more positive note, now I have had my little whinge, I have finished my 'Noel' letters! They are quite big, but in a big room with high ceilings they should look fine. I do have closer photos of the individual paper on each letter, but I'll post those probably tomorrow.
