Easy. Our homebuilder sucks. OK - don't know if the company itself sucks - but the actual people who built the house SUCK.
Please allow the graphical representations as shown below to be submitted as evidence:
Anyhow, so as you can tell we had some "concerns" about the framing. (these were taken on Sunday) So we called out a private inspector - at our cost - who came out on Tuesday. He found even more problems.
Our house now has a roof. Woo-friggin-hoo. But they cannot tell how many of the framing problems were fixed prior to the roof going on.
The other thing I have learned in my whole crash course on home building is that when you have a frame - there are these things called "Anchor Bolts" that actually hold the frame to the slab. yeah, our house is missing a hell of a lot of them. They just AREN'T there!! Or, some of them are there, but don't have the nuts that hold the bolt actually attached.
So needless to say, IF we get this house, and the bolt issue isn't fixed, if the Big, Bad Wolf comes along and he Huffs and he Puffs - he will be able to blow our house down.
why I couldn't have won that big-ass lottery I don't know.
