On the episode, Evans showed her friend how the ceiling and crown molding in the home she shares with David Eason is cracking. “The house guy in Wilmington, he’s been arguing with us back and forth,” she said, “He’s been trying to say that we put too much dirt on the land to fill our puddles and that we’re making all the water go down under our house. Dude you didn’t make the house pad big enough in the first place. Our house is sinking basically!”
Eason blamed the company for the issue. When the Vice President of Corporate inspected the home, he told Eason, “The county requires us to have positive drainage away from the house.” Eason responded, “You can take that idea and shove it up your a** because my house is falling in the mud. I want my house on stilts or raised up or dirt underneath.”
Eason later told his wife, “I told them from the very beginning, this is a wet area. I need at least 12 inches of dirt under my house. They put four inches of dirt. The inspector said, 'It’s fine.' This is wrong!” He added, “I told him it was going to be a problem before it even happened. He could be a hero and he could raise up my house or he could be the bad guy and I could take him to court.”
Instagram account Deadbeatmom_jenelle posted the inspection report. RadarOnline.com exclusively confirmed the validity of the report with modular home company Chris Holmes, P.E. Associates, Inc. In the report, the company explained how water is ponding beneath their home. “It is our understanding that the septic tank and drain field are within 10” from the house and appear to be at a higher elevation than the crawl space of the house. The top of the tank appears to be covered with only 2” or 3” of soil. There is approximately 6” of soil over the drain field.”
The inspector recommended installing a 6” perforated French sock pipe to properly drain the water away from the house. As for cracks in the ceiling and crown molding, they recommended the couple hire a “soils engineer.” The report also revealed that the doors do not close properly because of the issues.
“It is our opinion that the house should have been raised higher than it is presently,” the report concluded. “We feel that the French drain will be one of the only solutions that can be utilized at this time. Some additional soil can also be placed at this end of the house to help alleviate the water from ponding.”
