My wife gets angry with me at times for being to hands on but if a worker can get away with an easy job I want to call it something else they will do it and if the job is not done correctly it has to be done all over again and in your case maybe the neighbor won't be so happy with your dish on their 8 ft wall and good luck getting them to come out and redo that installation and for sure you are right your complaints fall on deaf ears because most of these Cable/Internet jobs are contracted out.
Supervised? Mark I was the managing director much to the installers disgust though in the end agreed it was a neater and more efficient way to install,,,,,,,, the (lol) extension ladder was the clincher.
Yes Ben gets angry with me at times more so because I am up front and to the point with service providers (that we are paying) and I'm sure they are not used to actually conversing with the client/westerner. After over 5 years of living in Australia Ben does see things are somewhat slow and convoluted here, BTW the sat tv works great unlike the internet, lightening quick when I get up at 4:30/5:00 am but by 7am it just crawls along.

More good news. I managed to locate a company out of Olongapo city (Subic Bay) that supplies decent ceiling insulation R3 by Aussie standards R17 Filipino standards, our architect has never seen this product and seems very interested especially after he advised foil insulation with a rating of R1, though the cost is high @ P300 per M2 it will pay for itself in 2 or 3 years with A/C electricity savings and reduce noise when it rains.

Enough for now.

Cheers, Steve.
