We blogged about the building process of our house to document it for ourselves and to help others. Our house is finished and we have moved in and we love our home. Building a house isn't a process that goes perfectly, no matter what builder you pick, and this is our story. Every problem we had during the building process has been made right by Ryan homes. This isn't complaint blog, its how we felt at the time of our post during the building process.

Week 11, All the flooring is in and uncovered

So we haven’t heard from our PM yet since he is still on vacation, and we didn’t want to contact the other PM listed on his out of office e-mail, as it wasn’t emergency. We wanted to give him time himself to address the issues. With that being said if we don’t hear back on Monday or like what he has to say, my husband will be stopping by on Tuesday morning to go over everything with him in person. As we want everything fixed that we have pointed out to him before the final walk thru, done by the final walk thru. We don’t expect our PM to be perfect, no one is, but he should be able fix things pointed out to him in a timely manner (We gave 2 weeks, he used 1 as vacation). If he is able to do this then we will make sure it’s reflected well in our survey. This week he said they would be finishing up the outside, that clearly didn't happen, lol. It still looks the same, so next week is the last week for this. We also noticed a couple more things wrong this week, some after some research. I was worrying about our cleanout in the basement pipe. It’s facing in the wall not out, making it hard to actual cleanout if needed. So I looked up the code and it doesn’t meet code the way the clean out is currently installed. Along with them sealing the wall closed over it, big no no. It must be accessible, so that will be fixed. We also measured between some of outlets and don't meet code, after we even paid to add an extra one, lol. It's sad the county inspector did even catch all these things that don't meet code. So I will email him to add these to the list along most listed below. I don't think our PM realized how detail we are at checking things, until he reads our list of what's wrong. 

Picture time (all pretty flooring)

  1. That dark carpet is gorgeous! At this point in your build I would just tell my PM I am taking my blue tape and marking everything I want fixed. Then mark the place up. Even without the PM there the workers know what those tape marks mean and might just fix it without being told by the vacationing PM. I know we had quite a few issues and in the end all of them were fixed. Some had to wait until after closing (parts being delivered), but it all got done. And most of those fixes came in the last couple of days. I'm hoping that's going to be the case for you guys. I was told, even with 4 different people doing a walk through, that some things were going to be missed and that's what our 60day is for. But we only have 3 items on that list so far.
