And btw again...just wondering why u need to look at the lumber before u know if u would use it or not? Just bc u answer the question I asked doesn't mean that u acknowledge what kind of lumber we sell. Just answer based upon the lumber u have seen in ur experience before and the mold that u are talking about. If THAT lumber that u have seen before with mold on it was in ur house being built, would u care if it was there or not? Going by all the times u have stated that it is harmless and can't survive then ur answer should be no...u would not care if they covered it into ur home behind ur walls and roofs

No just answer. Did u not read my post? I said going by what u know. I'm not talking about slimy lumber being in ur house. I'm talking about the same regular blue green mold that u are. If u were building a house and saw THAT in it, would u say something or not? Simple question. No trick. How could I trick u? I'm just saying hypothetically, if u were building one and saw the mold that YOU are talking about, regular mold, all over ur lumber in ur roof and walls...would u say something or not? I'm just so curious bc u say it's harmless, yet there are always customers that complain to ball when they see it. So would u be one to complain? Or leave it in ur house? Just a simple question. U say it will die out inside. So would u leave it and not care? U answer...and I'll gladly tell u where I work.
The common blue green mold that is harmless on a few boards here and there that is the case on 99% of all constructions - I have absolutely no problem with that. It goes away.

No they don't. Why? I'm not acting 5 years old. I was merely letting people who buy ball homes know to look at their houses very well, til Cochise comes along and thinks he knows more than I, when I see it first hand everyday

No, it hires people that can't get real jobs. Five year olds actually have futures.

I am not sure what neighborhood you live in, but my house was $300,000. For that about of money I should have a nice house...heck, even if I paid $150,000 I should have a house that doesn't fall apart the first year. There are builders who still take pride in what they do and my next house will be built by one of them. If you are suggesting that because you didn't pay a ton of money for your house you can have a junky house then I am sorry your standards are so low.
Someone marked disagree to this... what exactly are you disagreeing to? The fact that I want a good home for the money I paid or the fact that no matter what I pay, it should be built correctly?:)

Please... letís try to stay on topic. There is a type of mold (spores) that is on lumber most of the time. It has to have the right conditions to grow and "food". In "normal" conditions, the mold does not grow... it stays dormant. If there is moisture coming in from somewhere... it grows and will continue to grow. That is why it is hard to get rid of it. Most cleaners only get rid of some of the spores; hence disinfecting...what would be needed is sterilization (getting rid of all of them). If a few spores are left and the right conditions are there, it will grow again and spread. You can look all this up on the internet for verification.

I think some of these comments are from people who work for Ball trying to get this taken off again... letís not go down to their level.

Someone marked disagree because they know you're full of shit. Basically it'd the same person starting this crap and when anyone else comes along with a disenting opinion they are accused of working for Ball. That's the first sign that you are full of shit. If Ball was building moldy houses it would have been on the news, there are thousands of Ball homes in Lexington alone, we would have heard it somewhere besides topix.

Not true. Like I said earlier..it's not like it's in every house and just covered in mold. But here and there we do send out some really nasty crap lumber to them and they do build it into the house. Not all of them

Does KI sell lumber only to ball homes since that is the only company you are specifically mentioning by name. to be fair, you should list every builder who gets lumber from your company

No, they sale to pretty much all of the builders in Lexington - Jimmy Nash, Mike Kerwin, Barlow... People don't realize that the only real difference in these houses are the design and the management. The contracted workers are all pretty much the same: Fayette Heating and Air, ADI Appliances, Bretchers Lighting... If you go into one of these developing neighborhoods you can see a crew of Mexican framers get done framing a Ball Home - then they'll hop in their van and head off to work on a Jimmy Nash construction down the road. Everything is contracted and everyone that has their hands in Lexington's urban sprawl is making a fortune.

That's our main builder. Yes there are others but they don't accept the same crap that ball does. Just like someone said In am earlier post, with ball it's about quantity. Not quality. Throw up as many houses as u can and get paid
