Watching the house under construction was one of the most frustrating experiences we've had. Hughston's motto should be "we do everything twice."
In our first meeting with Hughston's listing agent, it was very clear their real estate agent would promise us anything we asked for in order to make the sale. We were very optimistic and excited at first but later on we would realize that these were all false promises. Hughston's listing agent could never give us a straight answer when we asked about any specifics of the house. During construction our motto was that everything would be a surprise since we had absolutely no idea what we were going to end up with. Once construction finally wrapped up, we compared our notes from the original meeting to what we got and they were quite different. We wish we had seen the advice on this site to get everything in the contract, because now there are several things we must pay out of our own pocket to add to the house.
For whatever reason, it took a full 5 months to get the house completely dried in. Every time it rained the entire house would be flooded with water thanks to holes in the roof, windows that weren't installed for months, or completely unshingled sections of roof. The house was finally fully dried in a week before the drywall went in. Or so we thought. Just a day before closing, a large section of drywall had to be replaced after an undiscovered leak poured water into the master bedroom.
