Ok, ok I'll tell you why he was sleeping in the closet


This is why: that is my family room ceiling. Note the sexy builder's choice light. Our master bedroom, dining room, and breakfast room ceilings look the same way. This is why we still have boxes all over the house that remain unpacked. Our lovely builder, CP Morgan left our house in a wreck and said it was ready to close. Let me tell you we will never build a house with them again, nor will we ever recommend them to anyone. Don't get me wrong, we love our neighborhood and our house, but the experience has been just awful. I can't tell you everything that's happened in one post as your eyes will tire from reading and fall out of your head- the post would be so long. But I want to get the word out to as many people as possible to spare folks the agony that is working with CP Morgan.
Right now there are 6 men in my house sanding, nailing, painting, and fixing things. All things that we pointed out needed repair back in August before we closed in September. And now all of our things are covered in a thick layer of white drywall dust. They were here all day yesterday too. Jon couldn't sleep the night before worrying, so he caught a nap before work in the closet- literally the only space there wasn't work being done.
We haven't been able to install ceiling fans and lighting because of the ceiling repairs. We couldn't unpack most things cause that would be more to dust after the repairs. We haven't been able to paint. Or set up our bed and other furniture properly cause it would have to be moved.
Everything on the 3 page list of items to be repaired we were assured were normal by our then construction manager. He's since been fired. It took an angry letter to the home office, multiple phone calls, a 3 hour meeting with CP Morgan execs, more phone calls, and another meeting to get these things repaired.
CP Morgan's slogan is "More Square Footage, Less money". It should be "More headaches, Less Satisfaction". I swear to you they sucked every bit of excitement and happiness out of building our house. Trust me when I tell you, spend the extra money. You truly get what you pay for.
