I was doing some searching on the Internet and found this site - Homeowners Against Deficient Dwellings. The site, which is located at http://www.hadd.com has chapters all over the country and is a non-profit consumers site who have taken issues in hand and organized to do whatever is needed to improve the quality of construction for residential structures. I recommend that each of you take a look at the site and, if you care to join in, I will be posting some of their issues on the AEC-Residential Listservice (see instructions for joining below) as well as the Structuralist.Net Professional Bulletin Board (accessed from http://www.structuralist.net/professional.htm ). Personally, I am pleased to see a consumer protection group established to fight back on the issues of construction quality. In my opinion, if this is the only way to bridge the gap between quality issues that can be resolved through education and professional coordination rather than more stringent codes, I am all in favor of it. I am curious as to what many of you think of this type of consumer protection group who intends to promote the education of the homeowners and buyers. Regards, Dennis S.
