Corrections & Status
We had to vacate our toxic home, (10100 Sara Jean Court, Glen Allen VA 23060). This was in part motivated by what we believe was an illegal foreclosure process. A trial on the issue is pending. Since we currently have legal reason to believe we were misled, in that the foreclosing party did not have full legal authority to execute a foreclosure, nor did they have full authority to negotiate any terms of abandonment, we have not opted to surrender all rights to our (former) home, despite the mass of complications created almost entirely by abuse from other entities: But as of April 27, 2015 all rights or claims to re-occupy the house as personal property or as a home have been released on advice of council. We will never again live in a home built by Ryan Homes or own a home built by them or any other similarly substandard quality national builder that uses blatantly deceptive trade practices and makes proven false claims about the quality of their workmanship or reliability of their warranty.
This Includes Ryan Homes (shoddy construction and defect issues), Wells Fargo/GMAC (executed an illegal loan contract that never entitled them to a single payment, and has never been corrected), The Laurel Lakes Homeowners association, (multiple breach of contract issues and targeted personal harassment/abuse), and several others as explained in the book 'The Poisoning Of An American Dream' (still pending) that covers the issues and basis for this site in greater detail.
Our former home has stood empty for over nine months since we had no option but to leave it, as our lawyer (Henry McLaughlin, Richmond VA.) tries work out the issues. The case has been bounced between county and federal courts, and is now set for federal court. Whether the home can be made fully habitable, and terms with involved parties can be arranged, remains unknown.
What is known is that we are still holding for a suitable (least worst case) resolution to the only $1,000,000 uninhabitable townhouse in all of Henrico County, and perhaps all of Virginia. The home's actual "restored" value is well below $150,000 in any best case scenario at the present date. Any other future (new) owner to the home should also expect to be strapped with $10's of thousands in liens that are waiting for a victim to step up and pay what are otherwise discharged or illegally applied debts from various collection parties that the original and we believe rightful owner cannot be charged with.

Final comments from our final contact with customer
"Even if we determine we are responsible for the defects and damages to your home, we will NOT make any repairs to your home"
When confronted with the fact this criminal negligence would become well known public information Ryan Homes V.P. Winston Read also stated:
"Ryan Homes is a large well organized company. We know how to deal with matters like this."
This was untrue. They have no mechanism to deal with people who won't take no for an answer. The refusal to repair the damages from well documented home construction defects has cost them over 1000 times more in losses than just doing the repairs at first contact. Even knowing this, the ego and narcissism very apparent in our customer service experience that still resides at the executive level leaves a sad realty. NVR inc / Ryan Homes is incapable of doing the right thing to address our issues. Hopefully others will fare better from what we've done here.

Our story with pictures
Photo: (Top right)
Blown Cellulose insulation in the attic of our townhouse, in Glen Allen Va. This insulation is comprised of various waste paper products with small bits of plastics waste. We know the material is typically chemically treated, (boric acid) to reduce flammability, (although this material has burned in two of my homes now) and still contains the chemicals used during its original processing as newspaper, magazines and such, which included inks and binders that may become poisonous and carcinogenic with prolonged high level inhalation exposure or ingestion. The insulation material is generally not considered hazardous material, but unprotected exposure for 23 1/2 hours or more, average per day for a period of years through the unsealed HVAC system, requires a different consideration in exposure analysis.
|Pictured left: Close-up view of our cellulose insulation. Of particular concern, a fine moss-like material can be seen within the miscellaneous shredded papers. This low density material moves and becomes suspended with the slightest movement of air. Manufacturers claim it is less likely to become airborne than fiberglass. This particular part of the insulation material has covered virtually every surface inside our home, and clogs air filters 300%-1000% (latter number primarily as soot) faster than their recommended usable life in the home. We don't know whether the moss like material comes from natural degradation of the cellulose, is a normal by-product of the shredding process, or is some sort of microorganism contaminate. I found the material highly irritating to the eyes, nose and throat, and it caused skin irritation similar to wool fiberglass.|
