What next!!!!

Everyone shops for that home that will be the perfect place to put down roots and thrive. Well....not so fast!!

What we thought was going to be a wonderful experience in a beautiful "Custom Build"......has turned into one headache after another. From the chimney leaking complete with water running down the full length of our fireplace wall....a 2-story wall to.......well you get the picture.

Well.....this is what was next!!!!! Today we had our lawn ripped up!




What we thought was going to be a wonderful experience in Georgia after so many years of Air Force moves, we have had one disappointment after another.
Well.....we keep fixing this stuff!!
We got the chimney fixed after much back and forth with the builder. Then we had our front porch that kept leaking. After trying a fix of installing a larger gutter.....it still leaked. The builder just thought that I was being too picky. The builder's final answer was..."You have to caulk the posts on the upper deck." Well, caulking was NOT the answer. $7,000.00 later we fixed the porch roof thanks to the help of a another builder, Kenny Johnson Homes. Inadequate flashing was the culpret. Bottom line.....the builder was asleep at the wheel.

RIPPED...yes RIPPED UP


because the "Infiltrator System" (infiltratorsystems.com) septic lines collapsed. I wonder now how this company got this product past the approval process. As a consumer product, it has the lifespan of less than 10 years. Now I ask....who in their right mind wants to replace a septic drain field every 10 years. Well, someone in Georgia thought it was a grand idea! Need I say more!!!!
Oh.... I can't believe that Bob Villa also endorsed this product!!!!!
What I did learn from this experience with Park Side Homes/Tsuga Development is.....never live in the same neighborhood as your builder. Once there is the appearance of friendship.......they make it really hard to take them to task on their poor building quality! Of course if your neighbors were not customers of your builder and are friends with your builder.....then you are perceived as being unreasonable. My next builder will treat me like a valued client.
Whew......glad I got that off my chest!
