2 steps forward, 1 step back

As the house progresses, the margin for error grows. Our PM has been great about us walking through the house whenever we please, but it seems that each time we notice new issues. I thought I'd compile the ones we've come across, in case new homeowners want to look for the same!

#1: Accent Piece

The white piece at the top is crooked. It's slight, but apparent. Fix: The PM brought the siding guy over to straighten it. This has not happened as of Sunday, hopefully it will happen soon!

#2: Squeak/Odd sound when walking in the kitchen. Fix: A pipe below the floor was rubbing against its strap. The PM brought a plumber in to make the necessary adjustment.

#3: Chair rail
The two lengths of chair rail were not properly aligned. The PM made the same observation and is having it fixed. Fix: It has been properly adjusted and just needs a fresh coat of paint.

#4: Master Bath
Because it's on the edge, we are hoping it will be covered with tile. The PM is aware of it and I guess we'll wait and see! Fix: The tile covered the crack and it looks amazing!

#5: Cabinets
A couple of the cabinet doors are not level.

Other than these, the house looks amazing! They've painted the walls and trim, which look really great. (There is no way I could have done that well!!) The final inspection is still set for the 8th, and I'm hoping we iron out all the issues before then. Tile and flooring started going in today. I plan on visiting the house this weekend and will update with more pictures then!

  1. Don't worry about the bathtub, even if it isn't covered with tile, it will be repaired well.
