We Will Call This the Blooper Reel!

A collection of "OPPS" pics and explanations from the construction of the house!

First off - those very very long beams were 2x4's and thankfully one of my daughters friends noticed it and said they needed to be changed to 2x6's.  This is a load bearing wall!!

This set of french was installed backwards resulting in a huge water leak during hurricane Harvey

The water leaked down into our kitchen and ruined the newly installed dry wall ceiling

The trim  guys put the double oven insert so low - I would have had to lay down on my belly to see if something was done in the bottom  oven.  This had to be redone.

The kitchen cabinet hardware was sent with screws that were too short.

The microwave hutch still does not work properly.  When opened it lays on top of the microwave instead of in the brackets that should keep it flush with the top.

 The  workers kept opening my crank out windows and leaving them open in the rain.  They broke 2 of the sets of openers and left one window open.  I was unable to close it until the window guy came out to disassemble the crank. 

Opps - someone hit a glass panel in our breezeway door and did not admit to it.

Still dealing with this Opps.  This tub had a drain that runs beneath it - there for raising the height of the tub by over 4 inches.  The beautiful marble has to be demoed and we have to build up the platform to support the tub and then marble and tile it again.


This slipper tub was hooked up and when I went to clean it out - found a huge leak coming from the brass fixtures.  Water leaked downstairs and collected in the laundry room light that now no longer works.

A few more:

The kitchen flooring was installed and was twice as thick as regular tile - so the dishwasher and  the refrigerator did not fit.

The orig AC company I originally worked with did not install any vents for any of the bathrooms or the kitchen so my kitchen vent hood is really a very expensive light and there is no way to install vents in the laundry room, mud room bathroom or the exercise room bath.

The brand new freezer that has never been used but been in storage for over 2 years became home to a field mouse - who chewed through some of the wires.  Repair man coming this Friday to work on that issue!
