Day 231 – Gas meter

The gas meter has been installed and ticked off by the plumber. Lucky we checked the job with the gas company – it had not been logged and did not exist in their system. What the?

I have found a few times during the build that one person’s reassurance that something has been done or is in train is not necessarily the full story. As always, take your build into your own hands if you are unsure.

We are so close to the finish line it is not funny.

House is getting a major final clean and dust down today ready for the big day.

Not many sleeps to go….surely???



Day 212 – But where is the gas meter?

So, we are done. Finished. The house is complete. Blinds are in. Carpets are in. Independent M inspection went well. Certificate of occupancy went well.   There is nothing more the builder needs to do (few touch ups)

…but the gas man is another story.

It seems the gas meter, and connection to the gas mains in the street is months late. The job was booked in March, and still nothing.

Dormant house. Waiting. Next month’s rent is also due next week. Very frustrated.

Of all the delays…who would imagine it would be the gas….

Makes me smile as we almost turned off the gas and had a fully electric / solar house.

We have an inspection and official presentation of the house next week  – photo bomb to come…(minus the gas meter)
