As A Government Family We're NO Stranger To Tape ...

Though it's normally not THIS kind.












One amazing neighbor spent a whopping 2.5 hours with me marking every single nail pop we could find. Nail pops I NEVER would have seen had he not brought this fabulous bright light that he held over his head the ENTIRE time.

Using a long stick, we ripped and stuck the blue stuff to the tune of probably 300+ areas. We found a leak. We drew long arrows. We went through a whole roll ...

My walk through with the builder was today. The final day to fix everything "broken" during our initial 1-year warranty. It's no surprise that they didn't plan for enough time to get it all done. They're just lucky that my taping was localized to non-custom painted walls ... or they would probably have double the work!

Just like last year, I'll be a prisoner at my house over the next ten days as they fix, fix, and fix these piddly issues.

At least it's on their dime and I'll get a new paint job out of it ... just as long as it's not blue.

We all need neighbors like that! When we did our builders walk through we were given red stickers, which we used all of then went to office max and bought more. For several years we would occasionally find small red stickers in out of the way places like inside the laundry behind the door that got over looked. I am betting you find little blue pieces of tape hidden 6 months form now.

If the neighbor that helped you is my old neighbor then it doesn't surprise me. We miss them. :( Good luck with all of your fixes.

Omg... what a pain!! Your neighbor is a hero for helping you out with that b/c it looks like one of those jobs that are so tedious you might just die before it's done. Good luck with the fixing part! Thank goodness for warranties. :)
