    The neighbors we are just paying there electric bill next month given that the neighbor doesn't have aircon even if they run lights and fans all day and all night it still will be far easier than getting a temporary meter

    My house/land already had a meter in situ as I demolised the house that was there. The builder used the said meter but burned it out due to the welding machine being too powerful. I had to buy a new meter which wasn't cheap.

    ODB from the photo's of the house I don't see that they've put any pipe work in for the toilet and water supply? What's happening there.

    Yeah I have been pushing them to finish the metal work so we can get the roof up we have been lucky so far that it hasn't rained that much but I don't want to push my luck.

    We haven't started the toilet yet it is a seperate room off to the back haven't even pored the slab for it yet

    Is it just me or do thais not realize sun shine = hot

    Im very rapidly getting to the point for just letting them build what ever they want as thats what they seem to be doing anyway.

    I was just foolishly trying to build something that our kids could have in 20 years time when the inlaws are no longer in the picture
    So put the foot down....

    So they never got around to painting the metal work in red oxide? Plus there's no vents in the Toilet.

    The metal work is painted we just went with a grey primer instead of the usual red primer.

    And I specifically didn't want vents as they let the heat and insects in. An electric exhaust fan will be installed.

    Well I was quite surprised to say went to the electricity office to work out what we had to do power wise as we want to install our own pole.

    Pole part was easy just install the pole with the board and pipes ready for the meter to be installed.

    What shocked me was that we were told that to get power installed we must have an earth and an RCD. Requiring safety am I dreaming wow things might be changing

    I just hope they accept my individual RCDs on each circuit instead of those whole house adjustable crap.
