- Change the shower faucet - http://ravennaspeed.blogspot.com/2012/04/shower-faucet.htmlDenied
Okay, so the upgraded shower costs a decent amount but I am not able to upgrade the faucet because they cannot warranty it....? The faucet comes with a lifetime warranty, hmmm.
"Lifetime limited warranty against leaks, drips and finish defects
to the original consumer purchaser"
Several from my first post - http://ravennaspeed.blogspot.com/2012/03/first-post-options-and-rationalizations.html:
- Separating the two master bedroom windows so that they are on both sides of the corner rather than just on one sidePossibleWould have cost about 85% of the cost just to add 2 more windows. I chose to decline this.
- Moving the light switches for the garage coach lights and inside garage lights to the inside wall of the house in the mud roomApprovedCost is $25. I assume that it is due to the blueprint change because it should take near zero effort to just turn it around and put it on the inside wall.
- Adding a switch for the garage coach lights at the front door entrance
Adding a switch at the top of the basement stairs to turn on/off the basement lights there rather than having to go down to the bottom of the stairs each timeBoth PossibleCost was around $150 I believe each. I got some **ahem** flak for wanting to spend money on these though, so I conceded in order to retain earlier wins :-)
- Door deadbolt for the door going into the garage from the houseDenied
- A separate water meter (deduct meter) for the hose bibs so that there is now sewage cost like the main line Possible
Cost was estimated at $2,500+ to install. No thank you.
- Stronger roof anchors - http://www.amazon.com/USP-Structural-Connectors-RT7-TZ-Hurricane/dp/B0002YRFXEDenied
- Patio installed by RyanDenied
They only offer patios for slabs or houses with walkout basements (at least in my area).
- Radon venting systemPartially Possible
They will install a 3" pipe but they are not able/licensed to install the complete system to vent the radon gas from underneath the foundation.
