Hi everyone. Has been a long time since I visited. Have been in the House for a few months now and we are slowly fixing things ourselves. We took our $9500 compensation check from the builders and totally ignored them from the second we recieved our keys. We are fixing the problems as we go along but an electrician (at our expense)has finally done the power point in the ensuite and all the plumbing fixtures have been tightened so they are no longer leaking. We have decided to leave the plastering as is and will redo one room at a time as they need repainting also the ceilings. The crappy exterior doors that dont fit properly we will replace eventually with doors that will fit properly. We have a lot of cracks in the brickwork showing through the paint and cornices are cracking on the joins to the walls but no more gaps will fix that.
A lot of positives have come out in the past few months. We have a house that is ours and we hopefully will have a long time together to get everything done as we want. We would like to thank a lot of people for there helpful advice in this and other forums and hope everyone has a happy outcome for there problems.
Also I am happy to say it is finally starting to feel like a home and some where I could happily stay for a long time. (Still would not recommend the builder to anyone). Good night all
