Can anyone help me with this question? On my electrical plan it allows for 1 power point each in the ensuite and bathroom. I was checking the power point wiring installed by the electricion and noticed he hasnt installed any power point wiring in the ensuite and bathroom. Is this normal? maybe he installs it later because they are wet areas?

Ours was wired up at the same time as the rest of the house. Have they cut the hole in the wall for the power point?
Either way, It's worth a phone call to double check before things get to far along because it can make adding wiring difficult.

We have the wall plates throughout done. There is one in the ensuite but not the bathroom - DON'T STRESS!
Just make sure that there is a wire there...
We were told because there is the shower screen, then the tiles (where the ppt will go), then the mirror in a short distance, if the sparky puts the wall plate in the wrong spot, it will be bad if it happens to be under the mirror - so they don't put in a wall plate, then they need to check later if it goes horizontally or vertically (one on top of the other) depending on the gap once the other bits are installed.
There should be a loop of wires sitting about where the powerpoints will be (we missed it too and nearly had a fit...)

That's what your CSR is there for.
Don't be shy about it and just ask. As long as your polite about it I'm sure your CSR won't mind answering any questions you may have.
It's better to be seen as a worry wort and ask a lot of questions then keep quiet until handover and query things then.

THe wiring should have been installed at the same time as the rest of the house. It can always be moved slightly later. But maybe your bathroom is small, a GPO must be 500 away from a bath and 150 away from a vanity and not where it can get wet from the shower. It must also be no where near the floor. Same applies to switches. To do it later is a pain in the you know wot & not always possible .

I thought you should have wiring done, then the gyprock/plaster, then the tiles (if full tiling to ceiling) and the mirror, or mirror first then tiling. How could you have the mirror in before the wiring??
