30 day meeting???

Things are going well so far.  No major issues to report!  I do have some concerns though - namely the 30 day follow up...or lack thereof.  It isn't a huge deal, but I am a little disappointed.  My husband ended up having to contact our project manager to set it up - and our PM just ended up stopping by on a whim and going through the house with my husband when I wasn't home.  Not exactly what I had in mind.  And nothing that was pointed out has been fixed.

A few things:
- we have some concerns about the water pressure in the upstairs bathroom.  It is very low.  Fine everywhere else.
- front door, pillars, garage door all need a 2nd coat of paint and touch ups. 
- there is a spot on our stairs where the stain got messed up - that needs fixing.
- there are a few areas where the trim/drywall looks ridiculous.  I'll have to take a picture of the one spot in particular.  It has been driving me crazy.
- there is a piece of floor molding that wasn't nailed down where the sliding glass door is

it is all stuff that isn't a HUGE deal, but 1) I would've liked some notice on when our meeting was going to be so I could make sure I had a detailed list (especially if I wasn't going to be there).  2) I wish we were getting better information about what will be fixed and when. 

Other than that, we've gotten our first heating bill - very pleased!  It was pretty much the same as at our old house!  The snow and wind have been crazy the last week or so and I haven't felt a single draft and barely heard the wind! 


  1. Yikes! That is very disappointing. I wonder if that's standard procedure or if this was a special circumstance. So glad to hear about the heating bill. That's one of my biggest concerns.
    Thanks so much for posting about this. We'll certainly remember that in a few months when we scedule ours.

  2. My 30 day was a much better experience. Your better off calling the service center with your list at this point - or giving your list to your PM. Any requests we've called into the service center have been taken care of promptly - I wouldn't hesitate to call.
