Mold

So…writing this here just as a means of documenting to remember. 

We found out that our next door neighbors have been fighting M/I about mold. They closed on their house on Dec 31. Shortly after they saw black mold on the floor joists in the basement. M/I had it professionally mitigated. 

Then the neighbors samples air moisture in their wall cavities and it was 21%. Higher than what they say is the max allowable of 20%. 

Talked to our builder and his story is similar to the neighbors but that moisture in wall cavities is normal for winter construction. They said the houses need a good year to dry out. 

More to come as we learn more.

Trim & Cabinets

All done today. Big progress!  We also moved up closing to March 30 because the moving company couldn’t move us in until April 3 if we closed on the 31st.
