PCI - Done and Dusted

Yesterday we met our SS on site to complete our PCI.  

The whole thing took us over 2 hours, plenty of questions to ask, and still didn't get to look at the house as closely as i would of liked as there was so much to take in. Ive put most of the quality of the paint work in the hands of Steve and Tyrells. There were plenty of different coloured stickers all over the walls. To me it seems like all the issues were already found. And i couldn't see any that particularly stood out. If any are missed, it will be a shame but something that will just have to get done in the 13 week check.

The house looked amazing! The mirrors and screens were all installed, and everything was perfect. I could not pick up any faults on the tiles, and everything we had ordered was correctly installed. All the electrical was correctly installed as we had ordered it.

I had typed out a PCI checklist for our house so that i could ensure nothing would get missed. I had read it so many times in the end as i edited it that i remembered it off by heart, but it really helped to make sure everything was checked.

I did still manage to miss a few things, ive emailed SS today to ask if he could triple check for me, and he gave it the once over for me. 

The biggest issues we found were our safety diamond grill doors being fitted in the wrong colour. This was already been rectified and will be fixed for settlement. 

Our superscreen on the front didn't have the 3 point locking system, a cupboard in the kitchen had a crooked shelf, there was 1 broken roof tile that i could see. The rest was all painting and gyprock and cleaning issues, all easily fixable. 

Steve had organised for the gyprocker to be there while we walked around to fix all the little things that were noted on SS and Tyrells report.

SS went through the Tyrells report with us and showed us what each of the things were that had been found. Things i would never of found so its good to know these are being take care of.

After the walk through we were shown how the rainwater tank works, garage door and alarm work. Steve also pointed out each of the drains and what they are for. The HWS wasn't installed so he couldn't show us that.

So much to take in ive probably forgotten most of it! might have to speak to the electrician when he comes to install the appliances to find out how to use the alarm properly so i dont go setting it off in the middle of the night.

The driveway is the next thing that needs to be done, its also the last major thing before we settle. Hopefully the rain holds off so this wont be delayed and wont delay settlement. 

So happy with how it looks, everything looks amazing! i just want to move in and clean it to make it really shine! I love all my colour choices and the house just looks beautiful.


  1. Hi there just had PCI Friday was a bit dissapointed to see that the 75m cornice did not continue to the games room? Could you tell me if this happened to you? I think this is still a living area?

    1. ours is the same, i hadn't even noticed. Fine line between it being a living area and not. Technically we still do use that as a kids living space. Could be worth questioning if you feel its important. Is it worded anywhere on your colour selections the rooms it should be in?
