the last builder

taking over from gordon homes was jolamar, which built sections 3 & 4, cardinal glen section & common ground map lots 120-185.

jolamar’s houses include one of the larger house models, a 5-window colonial, and maximised interior space using 2×3″ studs instead of 2x4s for partition walls…not sure if exterior walls were also 2x3s.

the second builder in cardinal glen

taking over from birchwood was gordon homes, which built section 2, cardinal glen section & common ground map lots 58-119; the model homes were the houses across blue jay ct from the bahai church, lots 5-8, with lots 1-4 also gordon’s.

there are 4 different houseplans, but every house was unique in some way: our family room is on a slab, but in the same model further around the circle it’s over a crawlspace. switches are on different sides of doorways & rooms. plumbing…don’t get me started;-} suffice it to say that almost ever gordon home has had the street supply line replaced, and remember that issue with pinhole leaks in copper piping? yup, been there, replaced that;-}

Trash in Mailboxes

Several of our neighbors have found trash in their mailboxes this week…it’s a sad state of affairs when the first thought was a hate crime, but 45 is to blame for that:-\

I spoke to our mailman today, who told me one of our residents had been making those deposits, and had handed him a pinecone, as if it were a religious talisman. The resident has been detained for psychiatric evaluation following his rampage through our common ground.
