Nasty surprise in our new house!
Posted 15 December 2009 - 12:29 AM
They're making great progress and it's exciting to see all the changes that get done each week...
Except this week...
We're checking out the basement and the dog keeps going into the cold cellar and sniffing around.. I start to wonder what's in there that he's so interested in, so I go to check it out.
To my absolute disgust, there was human feces sprayed on the wall and a huge pile on the floor surrounded by toilet paper!
I am now hearing from others that this is fairly common and my co-worker actually caught the worker doing it in her new house on the actual plywood, but seriously?! That is absolutely barbaric! There are portapotties all over the street, why do they have to take a dump right in your house?!?
I am SO furious, but everyone is telling me not to call the builder to complain because who knows what else (or where else) they may do the same or worse!! And they will lock us out so we can't see what's going on inside at all....
What would you do??

Personally, I would call the builder and complain because that is unacceptable in my opinion. They may lock you out but I'm surprised that they don't lock up your house every night already...our builder always locked our house up at the end of the day, we usually just snuck in through the basement windows lol. I don't get it, don't they have porta-potties at the site?

I would definitely call the builder, but put a sarcastic spin on it. They probably have people call and bitch at them all of the time, so that probably won't do anything. I would call all polite and pumped about your house......tell them how impressed you are with the progress and how great of a job they are doing and then at the end add......oh, but don't forget to pick up the pile of $%!# that your worker left in the storage room. Thanks!

A friend of my did the same thing that you're doing and took pictures of beer cans the workers left in their duct work. Low and behold a few months in their home they had problems with their ducts and it was the beer cans that were the issue. The builder ended up having to pay for the repair work because of the photographs they had. Thank goodness for those.
