    We purchased a new spec home on Sept. 11, 2015 in Tahitian Village in Bastrop, Texas and looked forward to the move. From the outset, however, we struggled with defects, negligence, and a lack of cooperation from the builder, David McKenzie of Austin Area Builders. The first issue was a sewage smell, which has the potential to be toxic. It took two months for the builder to discover the reason for the problem. He finally knocked a hole in the sheetrock of the master bath and capped a pipe. As he exited our home, he huffed, "No more issues." He never apologized for the inconvenience or the hazard. The metal roof made a loud rattling/flapping noise during windy days. The builder said the noise wasn't covered by the warranty. I hired a metal roofing specialist, who simply unscrewed the ridge caps and removed excess roof paper that was causing the noise. This was an easy repair, but the builder refused to handle it. More often than not, the builder was annoyed by problems. Defects were not repaired in a timely manner. For example, it took seven months to replace a malfunctioning sink stopper in the upstairs bathroom. In addition, when the kitchen faucet required replacement, we waited three weeks and carried water from the bathroom to the kitchen sink to wash dishes. The defects and negligence which persist are: - Never provided architectural plans; - Reddish/brown in the water of the upstairs bathtub; - Poorly constructed moisture barrier in the crawlspace that caused mold; - Excrement adhering to the sides of both toilets because of poor quality of fixtures; - No gutter on rear deck although he installed a gutter on an identical deck of home he built next door; - Chips in the glass of the rear sliding glass door; - Rain that leaks into the garage floor stemming from an exterior porous section of concrete. Customer satisfaction was not a priority. In conclusion, I cannot recommend him as a home builder or remodeler. Buyer beware.
