Building A New House
Oct 24, 2021 7:55 pm
Hi all - I'm trying to help my mum who is building a new house in Perth, WA - we are both completely new to the process etc. We had an architect design the house and the builder has now started construction.
Our neighbour is also building a house and when we visited our site he showed us a few things that seemed a bit concerning (he visits his site almost every day)
1. large gaps in brickwork
2. usage of broken bricks
3. both our wall layers being constructed at the same time (in the neighbour's house his inner layer was completed first, then the external layer)
I've attached some photos - are these issues that I need be concerned about?
Should I get a building inspector / surveyor and if so does anybody have any recommendations. She will be living in this house for a long time so we want to make sure its built properly

Pretty hard to tell from those few photos, but in saying that what you have there looks very average.
I would be definitely getting a building inspector, get one that is a registered builder
