    His fuckup would be the drawings were not checked in this case

    Can go with the

    ďYou didnít check your drawingsĒ
    ďNeither did youĒ

    Route. Drawings only signed off by 1 person, mine has 2. Almost any other would Iíd say so you can use that

    Yeah this, just need to push really hard. Ultimately these houses are riddled with fuck ups and most people cop it but if you call out enough you can probably negotiate an outcome.

    You could take that approach sometimes - say youlll tell as many people as possible not to use them. But atm If they are overbooked with jobs anyway it wonít matter

    And in all likelihood you probably donít know 20+ people about to immediately build houses that it would have a big enough effect. Also could land you in trouble depending how itís done

    The mentality behind it confuses me. If I make a mistake, Iím kind of obsessed with fixing it in a way. Like I canít handle seeing something wrong and not resolving it If Iím close to the cause. Like itís genuinely my biggest fear and hate. I canít stand not fixing my fuckups if I make them. Granddad, my dad and father in law were exactly the same and I kind of got it from them. Just eats away at me mentally

    Itís kind of weird for me to wrap my head around someone who would see that, say itís ok and be happy with themselves for the most part

    I simply donít get it

    If you're getting one of those larger companies to build your house then they won't give a shit about quality. To them it's all about cutting corners to improve the bottom line. The second story of my parents house (metricon) was held up by the most random fucking wall, but it was cheaper and easier than doing it properly.

    But these companies are as bad as each other, so you can't exactly lose customers because who will you lose them to?

    Poorer quality is okay, impractical and barely liveable probably isnít though

    All I can think is a) how small is the bathroom or b) how huge is the sink/vanity that a door is able to hit it? I mean the place I'm in now how oversized doors and a minimalist small bathroom and you'd have a solid half a metre at a minimum of clearance.

    I mean if a door can't open fully through the sink is he crab walking past it because it seems like you'd have like 90cm of clearance at an absolute max for that to be happening.

    Was it on the plans? Ultimately you've got absolutely no recourse if they followed the plans you paid them to follow, all you can hope for is pity at that point.

    If it's not on the plans then go to them and make it clear they fucked up and that you will go to the ombudsman to get it rectified. They'll probably flog you off anyway knowing that ultimately you'll end up fixing the problem with a $1 button from Bunnings...

    Well like a building company, McDonalds confirm with you what you are getting before they proceed to make it, to avoid situations where the customer get something they don't want and the company has to spend money rectifying the issue.

    If the builder followed the plans that your brother approved then there is no chance they fix it. Should they have pointed it out? Absolutely, but you get what you pay for. Would a mcdonalds employee tell you that tomato on a big mac would taste like shit? Probably not, they're just trying to get paid with as little pain in their ass as possible.

    This is more of a buying a Big Mac, taking a bite , it has tomato, you saying what the hell, why is there tomato here, then McDonalds saying oh yeah we added that, itís written in small writing on the menu.

    A builder follows the plans. The builder also draws the plans though. If they are unwilling to meet basic expectations of house design then that needs to be explained. The idea the person needs to pick out design flaws ahead of the drawer themselves isnít really logical to me. I donít go to the doctor stare at my X-ray, he says you are fine then I pick it up and say ďthat smudge means my leg is broken, prepare the surgeonĒ. Sometimes the expert needs to be the expert

    He has one of those Douchebag bowl basins, The door has one of those stretchy chain things so the door just has like a really big swing on it . Would be removing that ourselves anyway. It is also small so a combination of all 3 means if you push it open it hits the basin

    People who live near us got arrested very early this morning it seems. Didnt hear it but had police knock to ask me questions just then

    They have 2 foster kids from a druggie mom who has 11 children. Mother tried to actually give them drugs one time when they were 8 years old. Anyway druggie mother accused them of molesting the 2 foster kids which is the fucking stupidest thing ive ever heard in my life. I pretty much just told the cops then if you are taking the word of a drug addict who tried to drug the children ahead of those 2 people, you are idiots beyond help and slammed the door

    Fair dinkum waste of oxygen the people investigating this are. Very angry about it
