Its supposed to be a package deal ,in a house build ,the builder would be insured against theft and my contract includes $500 for some kind of QBSA insurance,think its just a completion guarantee.......Other thing PO s me,is Im paying a "QBSA Portable Long Service "Levy........really PO d by that ,as my claim for a portable long service payout after 7 years was refused by the QBSA on some flimsy excuse...............better read the fine print..about 100 pages.

Rod has asked about the shed.....well so far ,there is zero action on the shed front...........Titan have told me "Dont call us-we'll call you"...so far they havent,but assure me I am on a list ,not forgotten................meantime ,new owner at Willawong has been getting in fill,and learning a few things about the trucking industry...............I told him fill dumping costs money ,he went ahead with some sharpie supposedly to get compactable fill.........shocked to discover the sharpie is getting $100 a load to dump horrible clay ,looked good in the dry,recent rain ,I nearly got stuck in it ...really ,I sunk to my knees ,and couldnt get out without lying down in the mud and rolling .....what a mess.

Thought I d report ..the shed is finally finished ......last stage was the roof and downpipe drainage .....couldnt get anyone to do it .....maybe next year ,mate......anyway ,finally got a massive quote from Fallon Solutions.....bit of plastic pipe ,small excavator for 1/2 day ,and its finished ...cost $6100.......I was expecting maybe $1500 would be the outside.......In Qld ,you cant do your own stormwater drainage ,since about 2018......Certifier coming next week for final inspection.

Sounds like Ned Kelly is still alive and well in Qld.
Can you use contractors to say excavate and a plumber to lay the pipe and then have it passed?

It’s a joke where was to water going to go before the shed was built? On the ground and be absorbed, but once you build a shed it’s got to be piped to the gutter and down a drain, which is exactly where it would have ended up if the ground couldn’t absorb it. I must be missing something.

I asked the certifier about alternatives ......he says the drainage is already on the limit for flow and roof area,so I couldnt use ordinary rubble pits......as for getting plumbers to any kind of construction work ,forget it ........every one I contacted was "maybe early next year".......only reason I could get Fallons to do it before the approval ran out they are about twice the price.......Its basically down to Titan......they took nine months to complete the shed .

No way.....Titans sell you the shed ,the rest is your responsibility.....anyway ,it took them nine months to get the shed up,another nine months to do the drains,and I d be paying for an extension of the approval.............Ive been told there is another catch too.....I dont fill the shed with stuff before final inspection......if the certifier doesnt accept that its for "Domestic storage",he can refuse the certificate.....Seems the approved use is for parking cars and boats,and maybe a mobile home.
