Baton Rouge, on Aug 01, 2016

I feel that the home was sloppily built and that the materials used in my house are cheap. The presentation was horrible and the staff does not come across as friendly. The builders' wife had promised to pay closing but builder quickly retracted that promise. My attic looks trashy and so does my garage. Also, my closets don't have shelves...never seen or heard of that before. I'm disappointed in my very first house since being divorced. I don't wanna forget to mention, the workers on the grounds are sloppy and careless, they have used my water and electricity, I'm more than sure, and they keep the areas around the community, nasty. When my house was in the building phase, I would go and look at the progress. Well, I got 8 nails in my brand new tire. Still have the picture. I'm so done with this place. My home will go up for sale in about a year or so. Oh, can't forget this, tile around my tub doesn't match floor as promised, in master bathroom. They get mad at me when call
