We have our pre handover inspection tomorrow.....Im happy & satisfied with the quality so far. I was fortunate to meet the BSS inspector on friday, and spoke with him briefly. Just minor things, paint touch ups, a few tile cracks etc. I took pics of all the coloured stickers that were posted around the house.
I wanted to bring along a friend who has built many homes, but when I mentioned to my supervisor, he clarified that only the contracted party, my wife and I and the supervisor are allowed during the inspection. This is PD company policy..........
Any tips you could suggest, in preparation for tomorrow. I will ensure that emotion does not come into play during our inspection and that we both stay focused, taking time and checking everything we can, cross referencing our plans & options list...
We are building a Cremorne41.

I'd say have a read of the New Home Inspections website:
There are sample reports on the site for double and single storey houses as well as FAQ's that should assist you.
You should have the right to have an independant inspector on-site....and if this is what you choose to do, then don't sign for the inspection tomorrow. Wait and be on-site with the inspector and sign it off then. Reason being that you will definitely find more issues with the inspector present than just yourselves.
Don't let them tell you "that's standard or that's normally what happens"...if you're not sure, get an inspection done. It's money well invested in my opinion.
Good Luck for tomorrow. Let us know how you go???
