Trace walk through

By August 20, 2007

I had my Trace walk through last Thursday. I walked through with a RAFN representation and Jim from EK. The developer and architect had done a walk through the day before and caught most everything but there were still a few details we caught (GFI plug wouldn’t reset, a little paint splatter, a little extra cleaning.. )

The largest concern with the unit right now is that the Douglas fir hardwood floors were damaged during construction and they now need to replace a number of planks. Apparently this is a fairly wide spread problem in the building.

The other thing I noticed is that the hot water heater they selected was really energy in-efficient. You would think the Built Green standard would establish some sort of minmium energy star ratings for the appliances.

I’d be curious to hear how everyone else’s walk throughs went.
