hpfl71 - Sounds to me like maybe it's your landlord that's cheap!! I've owned my Betenbough home now for 6 years and have enjoyed doing some of the upgrades myself such as tiling the kitchen back splash. Owning a Betenbough home can be a dream come true for people that wish to become homeowners. All houses require maintenance. I'm sorry you have such a sucky landlord.
Excellent builder. He will listen to you and build what you want. He is very easy to work with in the process of building. The quality of craftsmanship is outstanding!
