What else happens during the Lockup or Enclosed Stage of your new build or renovation?
There is a lot that occurs in the Lockup or Enclosed Stage – so much so, we broke into two parts (check out part 1 by heading here)
In this episode, we talk about part 2 of the Lockup or Enclosed Stage.
This continues on from the last episode, and we keep talking about the steps involved in making your home water-tight as we wrap up the exterior of the home.
There’s a lot still left to do in this stage, and it can be tricky to navigate, and to be clear about what’s included, and when your bank is willing to make payments in order to keep construction rolling smoothly.
Duayne and I talk about this, and what to expect from your builder in their communication and planning.
We also talk about
- strategies with minimising the use of scaffolding (which is an expensive part of your build),
- why the exterior painting is done now
- how to test your colours effectively so you don’t delay construction
- getting the best results from this stage overall.
