So my husband's uncle inspected the house this afternoon. Overall he was impressed with the quality of the house. =D So that's good news.
However he did find 5 issues of concern:
1. Sliding door needs a better seal. At the bottom daylight is coming through which means eventually water will come through and ruin the floor.
2. There doesn't appear to be any venting in the roof of the morning room. The work appears to be done, but per code, it must be vented. What are the plans to vent this room?
3. Easily half of all the windows, where they cut the house wrap, has been taped already, but not all the way. You can still see cracks and splits. It needs to be taped better, per code and for energy star certification. I DO want this addressed before the siding goes up.
4. At the back left of the house the gable where the trusses come up, on the freeze board, the last piece is already warped, sideways, and twisted.
5. There is a squeak on the top stair. He marked it.
So that's it. Those are what the inspector found. Most seem like they can be easily fixed. I think a few were a pretty big deal, but I am confident our PM will address each issue and am thankful it was only these few things and not anything too bad. =)
I emailed our PM the findings. He is out of town this weekend, but I expect to hear from him about it next week. Plus we have our pre-dry wall on Wed. Our inspector, his uncle, will try to be there, but he isn't sure he can make it. We'll see!
I have researched a lot of things to look for at a pre-drywall meeting. However a few of things found were not on my list and I would not have even known to check for them. Please people, if you can, higher an inspector before the drywall and siding goes up. It can only help!!
We're headed over this evening to check it all out. Maybe I can get some pre-drywall pics now. =)
