A breath of fresh air has hit Tamarack

I just have to share my relief. Tamarack has a new finishing foreman who in comparison to the last two (clowns) is a breath of fresh air. He delivers on his promises, at least so far. He came from...

Really, Phil A has a camera like that. We may just have to contact him. I was thinking of doing a 1 year home inspection anyway.

Thanks everyone? Much appreciated. We will look into the dampers, etc., and maybe invest in a Dyson if needed. I don't like a hot house but this is a bit chilli.

If you want family friendly, seriously consider a cul de sac. We are in a super friendly area, and I think that is a contributing factor.

I would recommend doing it yourself. We paid $90 each, and a sloppy job was done. I'm sorry to say that I wasn't too impressed with the workmanship of the electricians... (I could go on.). They...

Oh, and I'm thinking of buying some room thermometers and start logging the differences. Anyone know what difference in temperature that they would even be concerned about?

It's an upgrade?! Is that for Tamarack? Had I known or even imagined, I would have went for it. I've never lived in a house where this was a problem like it is here.

Thanks lilkirk. ;)

Yes, it's true. Homes aren't built like they used to be. This is new to me. I lived in an Ashcroft town home, and never heard my neighbours.

Oh and as far as I know, Tamarack has nothing left. When I spoke to D about a month ago, they had one inventory home and I have recently heard it sold.

I'd say it's slower. It took a long time for the sale of the last new build homes in JT, and there are a few resale homes that did not sell over the summer. In the case of one, it didn't sell even...
