We also found out that our PM is being transferred. It won't be an immediate transfer but he let us know he would be gone by the end of the month. He was actually pretty nice but from what I was told from others in the development he was a little too nice to the trades people who would come in. I have more than a few trades in my family and I do know you can't be too nice. You will get walked all over. This would also explain some of the issues with workmanship on some of the houses in the subdivision. It's just another bump in this road for him to be transferred. We are meeting his replacement on Tuesday so I will surely blog about that.
I can really say with all honesty at this point I do wish we would have either bought a resale or chosen a custom builder. This process should be exciting for us as a family but I feel like the downs have far outweighed the ups. Currently I can say with an emphatic NO that I would not recommend Ryan. I have let all bosses, sales, and PM's know that we will not tolerate shoddy workmanship. I would say my confidence level in them is about 40%. We have a private inspector who will be going through that house with a fine tooth comb. Jim and I also know that we are proficient in home construction.
Here's a pic I took yesterday.
