- Our new Fowler Homes CSO returned my call within 24 hours and told me the name of our allocated Site Supervisor
- A silt fence has been erected at the front of our site
- Initial survey pegs have been placed
|Does this constitute construction commenced?|
The fence erection occurred exactly 3 weeks after Fowler Homes received the construction certificate, and I guess this constitutes commencement of construction? This is therefore a week within what is allowed in the contract, not even taking into account all of the rain. It is funny how excited we can get over a bit of shade cloth and a few pegs!
Again I have been somewhat concerned about the volume of negative reviews on productreview.com.au. One nasty one today quoted a project number that looks legitimate. I do wonder if some of the others are real customers, disgruntled ex-employees or cheeky competitors. Surprisingly Fowler Homes have somewhat conceded some poor performance, blaming rapid growth and some incompetent personnel which they have churned. From our perspective they have been way too slow getting us to this point, but certainly no where near as bad as some of these reviews. Here's hoping our experience proves them wrong.
Time for a prediction - Melbourne Cup party in our new home! Pessimistic? Realistic? Optimistic? Will Global Warming, La Nina and GFC II join forces to conspire against us? Stay tuned.
