Hi ladies and gents,
I am new to the forum and a little green on steps I should take when building my new home. I am building with one of the major builders can any one give me advise on if i should get a inspector to over see building project at every stage of building? and if they can reccomend anyone and has any one got an idea of the associated costs involved?

Hi drm home - we have just started on the building journey also through H3nley. Before joining the forum I wouldn't have even CONSIDERED getting an inspector, now after reading all the posts I'm thinking it'd be well worth it!
I do also need suggestions as to when an inspector is required - every stage, just final, or somewhere in between?

I'm starting the process of building and I have a good building inspector that I will be employing at the base stage, frame stage, lock-up stage and Final Inspection stage. I'm using a firm recommended on these forums. I wasn't going to do it but I think its prudent, best deal with problem as they arise rather than find out when its a done deal.
