In the woods....with gyprocking

The internal gyprocking commenced on Friday and it appears to have been completed yesterday. (See photos below.

We sent an email last week to a senior executive detailing our concerns with the length of time it is taking to get the build done. Some weeks have gone by and only one small change has been done to the house. One other concern is the attitude we saw during the course of last week. The No-name Building company tried to use the quality inspection process as a means to hold us responsible for the build progressing. Despite providing a summary of issues noted by our building consultant on Monday , we were told the official report is required before gyprocking could commence (it was company policy!) . The official report was available later that day in any case. Again on Thursday, we were asked if it is ok to proceed to "gyprocking" and if it was, please send an email.  As novices we are not aware if it is ok to proceed to gyprocking. As experts,  the No Name Building Company is best to answer this. We do not know if the issues identified in the report have been fixed and have asked No Name Building Company to confirm. We do not know if there were issues with the PCA inspection nor do we know if it took place. We expect that No Name Building Company have its own only quality control processes in place and that reliance should not be placed on our building consultants report for this. Anyway, our concerns were voiced in email and on the phone. The assured us this was not the case.

We have also asked for a list of activities which are scheduled between now and Christmas. They have agreed to do this for us.

Let's wait and see.......

Hopefully the cornices and stairs will go in this week and I will be able to take a peak upstairs
