Building a House

We moved in on the 30th. Everything went well for the closing. Two days after closing the new mircowave died and now it has been two week and we still don't have a mircowave. The builder told us to go to Whirlpool for service. Took them a week to come out and they told us they would have to order the part and that it would take 7 days. A&E Factory Services was pretty rude about the whole thing, complaining that they would have to bring an extra guy to help pull the microwave out and fix it. I am pretty sick of people complaining about doing their job. Then we started having power problems. GFI tripped when we were using the gas stove, then we had partial power to the house where half of the lights didn't work but the other half. We called Progress Energy and they came out and told us that one of our power leads was cut at some point. They put a box at our meter to boost the power until they could get back out to fix the problem. That was Saturday, Monday I called back and they said they would have to send another guy out to look at the problem. What!!! you already sent a guy out why again???? Well the first guy didn't schedule a crew to come out to dig up the line. So this guy said he would have it done later that afternoon. Nothing happened.. every time the A/C would come on all the lights would dim and the clocks would reset and the dryer wouldn't dry. Later Monday night at 12:30 the whole house lost power. I called Progress and they came out about 2:30 a.m. And told me I didn't have power coming to the house. Humm... that is why I called you. I explained that we needed to get this fix as soon as possible. The guy said that the "crew" doesn't work nights but he would see what he could do. About 3:00 a.m. he comes back with another truck with a tractor on a trailer. They started digging and by 4:00 a.m. we had power again.

We are working with KB Homes to get some other problems worked out but over all the new home is very nice, plenty of space and room to grow. We have been working hard to get the closets done, mirror in, and boxes unpacked. Man it is a lot of work.

So we are finally upgrading our home. We grew out of our current home with our second and now we have three so it is time. We are moving from Morrisville NC to Cary NC which is across the street, about one mile. We have our current house sold but we are leasing it back until our new house is done. Pretty sweet deal. We hope to be in the house by the middle of September. If you are interested in seeing the progress of our house you can visit the following gallery from time to time.
