Blog Entries For The Month of August 2018

Different Standards It amazes me the things the builder did on the house that just wasn't up to par, we call this House Problems. We kept track of everything during the build process, Jerry was there every single day Monday through Friday and often on Saturdays. We know when things were done, and we know when weeks would go by and nobody would work on the house. We watched when work was being done, often having to point out deficiencies as they went along. Some times they would correct it on the spot, other times they refused to change it. We just wanted to make sure things were done right since we didn't trust the builder to do it right. Below are some of the pictures showing problems the builder and/or subs didn't address. Be careful who you hire to build your house.
