Randy Jones, Home Buyer in 62208

Building a new house turns into nightmare. A couple of things. First, verbally on the elevation.

Asked by Randy Jones, 62208 Thu Aug 21, 2008

We chose a flat lot and asked if our house's elevation would be lower than adjacent houses. We were told definitely. Also our sump in the basement was placed in the an area approx. 60 ft. from where we wanted it, actually where we had indicated we wanted our basement bedroom by egress. They said they could fixed that; techinically by concrete sawing our beautifully pour floor reinstalling the plumbing than doing a patch job to the floor. Wouldn't this make our new floor a used floor? Also the grade in which our garage floor was poured was 2 inches greater than what we requested. All of this could have been aleviated had they listen to us the buyer when they first made their dig and we questioned the basement hole only being 5 ft. deep. We figured they had dug it for a 8 ft. pour instead of a 9 ft. like we had signed off on. We had a third car garage added specifically for a popup camper, now I'm doubting the camper will make the incline of 26 ft. drive without bottoming out.
