Another Mistake!

We were so excited to see our first level framed on our drive-by after work today!  It looks great but.....

Unfortunately, we also saw a VERY big mistake.  The back wall of our morning room was framed with a sliding door walkout and two windows.  We are suppose to have four windows on the back wall with a patio door on the side wall.  We immediately placed a phone call to PM who said he was aware of this error.  Apparently our lmber had been ordered incorrectly.  Why was our lumber ordered incorrectly you ask?  Oh, just another error made by our sales rep who forgot to note on our paperwork that we have a front load garage.  (Our lot can only accomodate a home with a front entry garage as opposed to a rear entry which is per standard plan).  Luckily, this can be corrected and according to PM an order for the correct lumber has already been placed.  That's mistake #4 for SR - The extra money he is costing his company is adding up quickly.

My dad is going to make a trip over to our house tomorrow to check out the progress.  I may even swing past over my lunch as well.  I hate to be a pain, but we're really starting off on the wrong foot and I would much prefer things to be done right the first time around so none of us have to endure this aggravation.


  1. The most important thing is you caught it. My suggestion is to go everyday regardless if there's change or not and look at everything. It's better to catch mistakes before they move on to something else. It's frustrating I know but in the end it all comes together. Take pictures of everything also. You can never have enough pictures!

    Congratulations by the way! :)

  2. It's been my experience that Ryan Homes is extremely good at remedying errors like this. We had an issue with a garage door being in the wrong place, and it was resolved without incident.

  3. It sucks that another mistake slipped through the cracks, but I agree with the guys. You will not move into your new home with structural mistakes. Ryan homes seems to try to accommodate any issues that arise. I'm glad you were able to catch it, but I'm also glad your PM was aware of the situation. Onward and upward...
