2 Years on

My last post here back on November 22nd was not the last of the let’s call it “adventure” we had dealing with Metricon...

The day after the post it was supposed to be walkthrough ready for handover..and

They failed


The stairs were not finished

Painting was not finished

The Bathtub in the main bathroom was not fitted correctly with gaps at the end between the bath and tiles...

We gave up after that and told them to fix everything and the fun was taken out of the blog where it then seemed a chore and i had other things happening as well..

Lucy and I got married a week later and the assurances from the site managers and construction managers that we would have a home to move into after our wedding was not even close.. In fact we got the keys a month later a week before Christmas 2011

Now after living in the home for two years you really get to appreciate the quality of the builder or in our case the absolute lack of quality, from now I will start showing the world some of the crap workmanship and surprises I have found since living in a Metricon Home.

Day 281 (Week 41) [+57]

The Painter returned today do do a second coat on the front of the house, and he completed it just in time as the rain came tumbleing down... Also and FINALLY... they started to repair the bath tub in the main bathroom... just intime for our walk through tomorrow.

Day 280 [+56]

Workers were onsite today with a fair bit of work done to the outside. - Painter painted the downpipes and the front of the house (the right colour this time) the angle plates we installled above the doors and windows. and some trimming added to where it was needed on the balcony. Also the Expansion Joints were sealed and siliconed up!

they may just make it by wednesday for our PC walkthrough.....

Day 274 (Week 40) [+50]

Well Metricon decided to pull their finger out and actually organise some work for the house... the painter returned to site as well as the balcony guy to fix off the stainless steel barrier. Termite protection lookslike it was mostly installed too..

The Front looks nice now it is all stained again.

Day 273 [+49]

Today the cleaners returned to clean the second half of the front yard... and there was a meeting onsite with the construction team...Maybe they were figuring out how to stuff things up even more, because it is pretty clear they are in no rush to deliver the house anymore... Metricon are wasting time and have a book of excuses. they still cannot tell us a date for practical completion...when they decide to call us back that is.!

Not a happy person right now.

Day 271 [+47]

Not A Single Solitary Person Stepped on site today. Still no sign of the painter.. Lucy didnt even want to visit... There really isnt a point if the builder cannot be bothered to get any trades out to do any work...
