Purchasing a new home should be a fun experience. However, it has been very stressful. Currently my wife and I have a home being built in Cibolo, Tx. I have made a trip to the home on a weekly basis as it is being built and have found numerous issues. Items ranging from framing that is not square therefore walls are finished with a crooked approach. Gaps in case molding which often is an attempt to correct them with a lot of caulk. Products damaged during installation such as trim again fixed with caulk. Vinyl window frames cracked and repaired with an acrylic sealer as opposed to replacing them. Currently the wrong window was installed in the master bathroom as we have what appears to be a small shower window as opposed to a large picture window as shown in the model. (Pictured below) The window will be the deal breaker.

At this point I am putting a lot of faith in the builder hoping to remedy these issues before the home is complete. If these are not corrected I will not purchase but have decided to share my experiences with the readers. I will provide an update very soon as the home is expected to be completed this month. I am on the fence about this whole process. At this point we probably would have been better off just purchasing a home that was already completed but who knows? Maybe I will have a good product once completed. To be continued…
