|Well, it does look like a nice quiet street…|
Thanks to the kind links from Reality Tea, the posts here about Sheree Whitfield’s venture into the home building process are my most popular posts. I also get lots of emails and comments from other locals with updates on the property. I have not gone to lay eyes on the property myself yet; however, one of my favorite anonymous commenters left me this information today.
I drove by the lot today. There is activity at the house. I stopped by and the builder told me the house is being built to be sold. The name on the blue prints is Whitfield house… with Andrew Washington as designer. The build gave me Thelma’s number as the person to contact to purchase the home. It is going to be a great house, but in my opinion a horrible location.
So it sounds like poor Mama Thelma is sitting on some property that has become a huge financial burden and needs to be sold. From the sounds of things there is no buyer for the house that isn’t built at this time. Nene Leakes reference to the house as Neverland is becoming more and more apt.
I’ve had the first and last name of Andrew, who we saw portrayed on RHOA as the “contractor” for quite some time and have been contacted by people who claim to know some dirt on him. None of it is very pretty, or particularly legal. I have refrained from going into any detail here because I am unable to back up any of these claims with facts. It does appear that he is not the contractor but a “designer” who should work under the direction of a licensed architect to create the blueprints.
I can tell you some facts that I do know about building a house IN GENERAL. When building a structure, the government powers that be require that a licensed architect place a seal on the blueprint that certifies that it meets certain safety and energy efficiency requirements. Licensed architects are paid well for their skills and abilities. A “designer” cannot place such a seal. Even if a “designer” worked in an office suite that housed licensed architects where seals were, you know, just laying there, it would be a criminal offense if anyone who was not a licensed architect, like say a “designer” in an adjoining office space to affix such a seal on their own blueprint. Not to mention that person would be no longer be very welcome renting space in such a suite. If that were to happen word would get around about the “designer” and only someone with the IQ of a gnat would hire that “designer” because their shadiness would surely rear itself during the building process. For example, that “designer” could gum up the entire works and completely stall a project. That could leave the property owner in a really bad financial situation in which the seller would want to unload the property to get out from under the expense of the mortgage and the building costs themselves. We’ve all seen situations on those reality shows about flipping houses where the renovation takes too long and eats up any profits and the house flipper loses all of their investment.
Also, has anyone notice how many married men in the Atlanta area cheat on their spouses? As someone who is single and lives here, I can tell you it is certainly a problem.
