Brick Delivered

Not much has happened in the last few days except that bricks have been delivered.  It have been raining non-stop for a few days.  I'm glad that our roof tiles have already gone on.  Acting SS said that if we are lucky, we might see the bricky start on the brick before Easter but with all the rain recently, i think chances are it will not start till after Easter.

Bi-Fold height

Unfortunately despite the great progress made recently by Metricon, we have notice some mistakes too.  First was the bi-fold.  Both Vicky and I remember been told that the height of the bi-fold give was the same height as the displayed during our colour selection.  As it turned out, it wasn't the right height and was in fact lower which made the entrance to the outdoor room looked small especially when we have 2.7m height ground floor ceiling height inside.  I have made an enquiry to our acting SS and was told that if we wanted to change to the higher 2.4m height, we will need to put everything on hold.  There will be an admin charge, structural charge and re-drafting charge which will cost a few thousand not to mention the cost to remove the bi-fold and order new one in, and then re-install it back on.  New bi-fold will be more expensive compare to the one installed because it is higher and we might need to also add a steel beam on top of the bi-fold for extra support.  Our new acting SS recon if we are lucky, we might be delayed for a month if everything went through smoothly but there is a good chance that it could take more than 1 month.  He will be making an enquiry to the executive building manager today for us to see what option we got.  Personally, I prefer the doors to be changed to the right height but the cost and time added to make the change seem just too much....   : (   OH Great!!!
