I just found out that my 2009 NV Home was value engineered (cheapened) to save money in many ways.
When I asked during the purchase phase what were all of the things they changed the spec to save money, the sales agent assured me there really were no changes.
After living in the home I found out they widened the spacing of the floor joints to 24 inches which could explain why they can'y get the squeaks out of the floor.
The wall studs are now spaced to the max allowed by law as is the floor.
Also, I'm afraid to touch the wall.
Everytime we do it puts a dent in the wall.
The doors could not be more hollow - they keep warping.
Sometimes the doors close and latch and when the humidity changes a little they don't closed easily.
The company is losing so much money coming back out to fix and replace stuff that they should re-look their strategy of going cheap.
They also are using the cheapest sub contractors they can find and they are letting the subs in turn sub out to subs to make money without doing work. When I asked if they made sure illegals were not used on the home - they did not seem to care.
Anyway the home is always having issues and the blue tape is everywhere.
