I got a call from one of my insurance agents. Seems he is having a house built (I will inspect it later–he didn’t do a phase inspection) and it is nearing completion.
The landscaping slopes slightly away from the house–a good thing. There was 2" of black mulch laid around the building about ten feet out and covered the ground all the way to the foundation wall. The foundation wall is about 18" to 24" above the grade.
We had some rain Friday and Saturday, but nothing particulaly heavy, IMO.
There was a concentration of brown mud splashed about 2’ up the wall of the house on all four sides. (NO BLACK MULCH in the splash, just brown mud.)
The builder had washed the mud away this morning so I could not get out there to see it.
Any ideas how this might have happened???
