Our homes in some ways become part of us. We know all the comfortable nooks
and crannies, spend our most valuable memories within their walls, and
can always relax the moment we walk through the door.
While most homeowners can say that they experience this, sometimes this
comfort is torn away from people. In the case of Dallas resident Irma
R., she experienced this tragedy first hand. Irma says that her home is
breaking apart too fast for her to keep up with. The drywall and ceilings
have been growing cracks, and the molding and trim have begun to fall
apart. Irma says that every day when she gets home there is more new damage
to assess. At first she was patching walls and trying repair the ceilings,
but after a while the expenses added up and she simply couldn’t
afford it anymore.
Other neighbors and nearby developments have reported that their homes
have also started to fall apart. The communities agree that the damages
started to occur three to four years ago when construction began on the
Residents claim that the constant drillings and earth moving has caused
significant harm to the surrounding neighborhoods. Another Farmers Branch
resident, David V., also said that his house is in need of massive repairs.
He reported that his entire house has tilted, and he fears that the foundation
has lost its integrity. Numerous Farmers Branch residents protested along
the freeway overpass the day after a mass action law suit was filed.
