PCI preparation & check list

Final weeks are here and I've been keeping a tight eye on the house. A few quick visits keep me on top of the issues that are being dealt with and solutions.
Lucky I bumped into the Termaguard guy one day and notice he was installing an access point under where our deck will be, he moved that for me.
The cupboard guy was there one day and I pointed out lots of issues that needed a quick correction. This took him less than 5mins to do and saved us all lots of hassle if noticed later and then report to SS then to company then to this guy who had to come back. He also did me a favour and drilled a hole in one panel for a cord that will be put through a rear of a cupboard.
Picking up things like wrong shower screens installed saved us lots of time instead of seeing it at the PCI.

Here's my rough list for when I go though the house with our private inspector for pre completion inspection (PCI).
