I would suggest you locate a builder from outside of Lincoln County (Fayetteville). My personal experience is that the local builders dont have a clue how to build and will cut corners to pocket more profit. Not to mention they do NOT require permits or building inspections here, which allows the builders to get away with below average standards. So my suggestion.. hire a professional from outside the area.

I guess you had a bad experience with a builder. We tried outside but they don't want to travel to Lincoln County to build. Is Lincoln County that closed a community?

Are you a home inspector? Are you a contractor? I really want to be sure that I get the right contractor to build for me and I am not familiar with the area.

Yes, it is that closed of a community. If you dont mind going back in time, then Lincoln County is for you. I guess as long as you have "roots" here you will fit in fine. If not, then you will be considered an outsider who simply pays taxes.

I've been in a beautiful home that Malone/Whitehead built in the Riverbend Subdivision. BEAUTIFUL construction. I wasn't crazy about the outside, but the owners selected a "contemporary" design but the inside, no corners were cut.

Also have been in a home built by Tom Ward, I believe he operates under the name James Investment, same subdivision.

Haven't been in the one by Harris & Braden of Hallmark Homes but it looks very nice from the outside.

I don't know about the county, but the CITY does require permits and that contractors be licensed and insured.

You are not only wrong...you are just plain crazy. Sure there are permits that are required for building and there are inspections required. Fayetteville has good, reputable building contractors. Maybe you built your own house without a permit or inspection but they are required and licensed contractors get them. You are a nut case!!!

Please disregard the comment by the person who said permits and inspections are not required. They absolutely are. You will find no problem getting a reputable builder in this community. Jim Hardin in Petersburg (about 13 miles from Fayetteville) also has an excellent reputation and is a wonderful Christian who lives his beliefs. Again, "my thoughts" certainly is not being truthful, to put it mildly. Fayetteville is a wonderful town and I hope you join us soon.

We just visited Fayetteville today to look at property. While touring property our real estate agent told us about a house we drove by that was built by Malone and Whitehead so we stopped. I talked to the people there and they were very disappointed in the construction. They showed us where corners had been cut, poor quality of construction materials, improper installation of fixtures and problems they were still having with the house. This is very disheartening for us as we planned on using them from the comments on here. I guess we will just have to look at moving to another community and start over again. By the way, I almost forgot, they told us that they checked with the county and the only inspections were the ones required by the state for electrical and septic.

We are totally disgusted with our home Malone and Whitehead built. We have already had to put an additional $52,000 into it to currect problems and just found out today that it is going to take another $6,000 to correct the plumbing. The house isn't even 2 years old! And yes, the only inspections we had were electrical by the state and septic tank by the state. That was all that was required by Lincoln County.

proper venting p3101.2.1 venting required. Every trap and trapped fixture shall be vented in accordance with one of the venting methods specified in this chapter 31.
6. Pressure fittings where used inside of sanitary, sanitary line is back falling table 3005.4.2
7. Inch and half lines where used on the washer box table 3201.7 ( 3790) photo shows line and no trap or vent table 3201.7
8. Prohibited S traps 3201.5 these where found in all bath rooms.
Plumbing system for the home has so many problems it will almost have to be completely redone in order to work properly, change of direction, venting, size of the piping, traps, back fall in the pipes, clean outs , penetrations In the walls and around the tub and shower areaís ,strapping of the water lines , water under the house will have to be dried up replacement of the air ducts do to the water penetration , the re sloping of the ground around the heat and air unit. other photo included in this report .
RECOMMENDATIONS;
That a contractor be hired to repair the heat and air as soon as possible and to prevent the infiltration of water into the space below the home from the units, that the plumbing be repaired to code by a licensed plumber in the state of Tenn. To prevent in further problems with this system, the water that is now under the house needs to be tried up and water infiltration stopped before mold and further damage occurs.
My best rough estimate on the plumbing repairs including sheet rock repair with materials would be in the neighborhood of 5600.00 the landscaping and drainage work 3500.00 to 6000.00
