Time for our 10 month inspection

We received a letter and an email from Ryan last week stating it was time for our 10 month inspection.  We have to have our punch list filled out and back to them by 5 pm on Monday.  The letter did state this is NOT our drywall inspection and to please contact them in month 11 for that.  We are not address drywall this time.  I'm interested to see how this is going to go.

We do have some issues that need addressed.  Some are minor (like the drainage pipe isn't all the way covered in the yard).  Some are middle ground (my daughters bedroom floor squeaks like a 100 year old house.  NOT good).  And then there is the major issue.  Our bathroom.  Apparently water is getting out from under the shower door and has eaten away at our drywall right there.  Turns out, we aren't the only ones with this problem.  I know of someone else is who is having issues with water escaping from under the shower door and it's causing problems for them too.  So be on the look out for this folks.  I'm not looking forward to how they will fix this.  But I am looking forward to it being fixed.

We do have other minor things like carpet bubbling up now that wasn't at the 30 day, and minor stuff like that.  We'll see how this all goes.

I am worried about my daughter's floor.  It's right over the wall that wasn't "plum" that they had to fix.  I still have not forgotten overhearing the contractor saying he would never live in this house.  I'm nervous. 

So wish us luck!  I'll let y'all know how it goes!


  1. Why would he say that?!?! How rude!

  2. Geesh! What in the world was he implying? Good Luck on your inspection. I know your home will taken care of and remember naysayers are haters!

  3. Our master shower was doing that too. Our PM came in and fixed it a couple of weeks ago. The weep hole in the shower was clogged so it wasn't draining properly behind the tile. Our wall ended up getting water damage. He cleared the weep hole and then put silicon everywhere else. He cut out the damaged area and then replaced it with a patch of new drywall. After 24 hours of not using the shower (so that the silicon and drywall would be totally set), he repainted it. It's as good as new now. :)
