New house in Sagkeeng First Nation falling apart

APTN National News
A woman from the Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba says her house is falling apart and she needs help.

She’s contacted community leaders, federal government and even the company that built her home, but nobody is giving her answers.

The worst part is, she says, her house is less than one year old.

APTN’s Shaneen Robinson has the story.

  1. Unfortunately, construction quality is falling everywhere – just watch an episode of ‘Holmes on Homes’. Broken windows, cracks from settling, and trim are all very minor issues in the scheme of things. These are everyday costs for home owners. The furnace – sounds like it would be under warranty.

    Older houses were much better built. A 50 year old house is much better construction- if you maintain it properly, a well-built house can last at least 100 years – look around there are lots of houses that old and more. That’s why learning maintenance techniques is so important for home owners. The old phrase still holds true: “If you want it done right, do it yourself”!
