You know, I should have known, and just fired those:moon:

After the hole sat there a few months, they started pouring the foundation. OK lets pick a day with a few inches of rain.:argh: :argh: Well to make a short story of it. Cement trucks got stuck, state hiway closed down, three wreakers stuck, had to pull out the futters becouse they got dameged by the rain.:argh: :argh:

This is from the day we fired the builder and took possesion of the house. As you can see none on the landscaping is done.

Well, we are still not done. Could not realy fix/finish any of the stuff on the house, till the lawers are done fighting. We did finly get a chance to get some of the outside grading done, and some top soil spread out, but by then it was to late to plant grass. Looks like we may be all rapped up by the end of the year. I HOPE so.

Paul,
The important thing is that your living in it now. The issues will work themselves out eventually.

Did you ever resolve the shingle issue? Or did you just leave them like that? Has there been any leaks?

nope no leaks. It is still like that, and on our list of gripes. I will try to find a picture of it to show everyone the great work the builder did
