Customer Question
louisiana. i found two models...
i bought a manufactured home from greg tilleys in gonzales louisiana. i found two models of the same house and combined details from each to get the house to my liking. in the specs to both models the ceilings were listed as 9 foot ceilings. we never discussed changing the ceilings at all . without us noticing they put 8 1/2 foot ceilings on the last spec sheet which we didn't even think to check bc none was too to do so. they did it on their own without approval. When i noticed i called them and they said they took it upon themselves to save us money. what can i do?
