Comedy of errors

The last few months we have lived by the saying "if you don't laugh, you'll cry". That has definitely been the case for us for quite some time. 

We have tried to remain positive but find it increasingly difficult given that we have encountered just about every error that is possible when building a home. 

We have heard every excuse. On occasion we have had emails unanswered. Put simply, we have had enough. 

We are building this home with the intention of it being our 'forever home'. My next home will be a coffin. Bearing this in mind we will ensure that all issues are fixed. 

I think I'll let the photos speak for themselves. 

Rain head collector spot be moved to the side if the parapet. The right hand side of the parapet to be tidied up.

Cracks appearing in front porch pillar. 

Somone didn't nail in the 'skirting timber' (not sure what it's called) on one section of the eaves. 

Cracked WIP door frame

Kitchen wall is not straight, causing the architrave to sit out. 

Rear sliding door is about 10mm out of square. 

Just some of the damaged door frames and window frames/sills

The hole for the aircon/heating vent. Someone tried to turn this into a manhole and started cutting around it. 

Damaged internal door

Wall not square. Or skirting. Unsure which...
