Our 3rd party inspector caught windows that were wrapped incorrectly on the back of the house. Our PM agreed that they were done incorrectly and that he'd have them fixed. The inspector said everything else looked good and the quality was much better than he usually sees with new builds. He was pretty impressed! The inspector fields questions on a weekly radio show and seems really knowledgeable. Very reasonable price to pay for our peace of mind.

On another note, Guardian placed the wiring panel incorrectly in the basement and an outlet on the wrong stud in the living room. The guy came out last week and spray painted in green where my hub wanted it all to go, but they still got it wrong. Hopefully they can fix it! We haven't heard back from them yet.

We went out to the house Saturday to look at everything in detail without the distraction of the workers and discovered that we were missing our laundry tub upstairs. They didn't accidentally place it in the basement either. It seems they just forgot it. We sent the PM an email before we left the house Saturday. When my hub went for the inspection yesterday, the plumbers were back doing the pipes for the laundry tub. Yay! So glad we caught that!


  1. Good catch on the tub!

    Our inspector found a few windows that weren't wrapped right too. And as a whole, he was impressed as well. =)

    Glad it's all going well for you!

  2. Our inspector was impressed both times he was out...pre-drywall and final.
