*UPDATE Employee ..inside information: Southland Log Home Response
We long dreamed of building a log home that overlooked the rolling hills of TN and living out our retirement with family and friends. We found the perfect property right behind our daughter’s house providing us the ability to watch our grandsons grow up and aid when our son in-law deploys.
After months of analyzing layouts and attending a multitude of log home shows, we finally felt like we were ready. We purchased a kit from Southland Log Homes and hired one of their preferred builders to construct what was to be our dream home. We received the name of the preferred builder from Southland Log Homes who claimed this builder had constructed over 40 Southland Log Homes. Also as indicated on Southlands website, we were told that this preferred builder was licensed, insured and bonded.
However once we noticed multiple issues with the construction of our home we hired an inspector to aid us. The inspector indicated more issues than we had ever imagined and upon requesting those repairs to be addressed, our preferred builder no long showed up to the worksite. We made Southland aware of these issues. A multitude of messages left with no responses, and emails. We began the pain-staking process of searching for a new builder. It was in this period we were told that the house could not be repaired. A structural engineer found 25 pages worth of issues that turned out to be the tipping point. We also learned that our preferred builder, which Southland Log Homes referred to us, was not even licensed, bonded or insured. We had no choice but to pursue legal action against Southland Log Homes.
Southland claims all preferred builders are verified and capable of building a log home. So imagine our surprise when they were unwilling to take responsibility for their deception. So now we are attempting to figure out how many more thousands of dollars we will have to go into debt attempting to receive some sort of compensation so we can actually retire and have a home.
We are still living in our daughter's home, all of our dreams and savings are now gone. We have a loan on a home that we must be torn down and a multimillion dollar company that will not take responsibility. So the next time you think of a log home, make sure Southland, or any of their subsidiaries, have nothing to do with it. Or you could have your dreams crushed, all your life’s savings stolen and possibly be homeless.
