My family and I moved into our first home July 19, 2007. We have gone through 3 AC coils, an oven heater coil, all mirrors are black along with copper wiring, copper and fixtures. We are fatigued all the time, suffer from sinus headaches, bloody noses, coughing, dizziness, dry and burning eyes. What has our first home experience like? Well I just listed the symptoms we have, and our American Dream has turned into a nightmare as we are forced to walk away from our home and be foreclosed on as our Lender will not extend our forbearance. Oh, I forgot to mention also because our superb government and president refuse to help any of us. Wow - talk about supporting your own huh? Thanks to everyone involved with the government for turning our American dream into an American Nightmare and ruining our credit with a foreclosure at no fault of ours!! Maybe another country will receive help from our government this week, while it's very own citizens suffer!!!

We still have the piece of drywall cut out with the marking Taishan on it. Have not contacted the manufacturer as this is all handled through our attorney.
