Frames Completed

House is moving along really well, the frame work is all completed now with the windows in. Tomorrow the facia's are getting done if it doesn't rain and roof tiles are due to arrive on Thursday.

We've got an issue with the power at the front of our land, there is none... We don't have a power box directly to our block so the electrical company only ran a conduit from the power box to the front of our land. However the electrician/builder are going to charge me $885 to pull the cable through.. Not sure what I can do, have spoken to Landcom and they said thats how it is.. Thinking of going to Fair Trading now to get this resolved...

Here is a pic of what of what I'm talking about.


  1. Congrats on the progress! Allworth normally builds quite quickly!

    The electricity supply is a bit of shame. I think the utility was just trying to save a bit of cost and not having to install another power box. Landcom could have claimed the land price would have been discounted to allow for the extra cost of pulling an extra cable. Not sure if it's worth the trouble but can give it a go I guess!

    Hope you settle this soon!

  2. OMG! that is so frustrating! We have a little green box at front so hopefully won't cop this. But things like these make me wonder about the "unknowns" of building

  3. thanks for the feedback will let u guys know what happens.

  4. Finally received the cheque from Landcom today for reimbursement of cost to run the power cable :)
