I have HAD IT with this place. Bowed walls, "rippling" walls, crown molding with reappearing seams, HUGE cracks that reappear no matter how many times they fix them, gouges in drywall in corners where they think you won't see them, etc. The list could go on. And after you read through my blog you will know how "on it" I was. Even after all of that, there are still so many issues with our home.
Below are various pictures from the past 7 months. Some are of my projects (not all of them) and there are a few of the craptastic workmanship of Ryan Homes.
|This was after we removed the molding in the kitchen to install our tiled backsplash. They had caked on so much spackle to make the wall right but failed to do that everywhere, especially behind the wall plate.|
|This is my craft/sewing room with the sewing table I made so that my machine work surface was flush with the table surface. I have since installed a sheet of plexi to the top so that my fabric slides along the table better.|
|The most recent "fail" that finally prompted this post. This wall is SO BOWED that we can't hang this floating shelf. The shelf has to be floating because I just spent the past 3 days hand painting the silhouette of a table onto the wall.|
|Canisters with decals that I created, cut and applied on my own.|
|Our striped powder room.|
|Daisy in her Halloween costume.|
|Daisy's little area. I created the name decal and cut it using my Silhouette machine.|
|Frosted decals on the fridge that I customized and cut with my Silhouette Machine.|
|Another one of the decals I created.|
|Part of our gallery wall and also a curtain panel that I made with my sewing machine. I am still working on the other 3 panels.|
And there you have it! I'm sorry for such a bitter post. But I am just so angry. Im angry that I have put so much time and effort into making this place feel like a home, only to find random "fails" every step of the way.
Hopefully some of you have had better luck than we have.
