I remember reading about your issues with the developer and thinking that seems stupid, but at least with our house design we shouldn't have any issues. How wrong I was. And yep, it doesn't seem like there is a whole lot we can do about it except fork out several thousand dollars more and accept a multi week delay in starting construction.
BTW how did your meeting with the SS go to discuss the list of defects from Darbecca?
The meeting went okay.
They agreed to fix more of the defects than what they had originally and some were even done before we arrived. They argued that some they disagree with in regards to what Darbecca are saying was a defect, others they said will be done at a later stage in the build because of the order they do things. Some they said they don't understand what Darbecca are saying, which is frustrating because the Site Supervisor intentionally doesn't turn up for the Darbecca inspections because he will just "argue with them".
Us calling the face to face meeting meant more things got fixed but still frustrating that everything on the list is not going to be addressed. And because we have already paid the invoice for that stage of the build we can't do much more to get the whole list ticked off.
Our site supervisor is away this week and the replacement has at least called us numerous times, arranged another meeting on site and explained everything. We have appreciated the communication which is more than what we got over the last month.
