I'm an Inspector and I would recomend that you go to your City Inspector and find out just what was said to the builder. (Be nice)
Ask what the code is for your location.
If this is a violation, tell the inspector that you want them to make sure it's done right!
Tell him that you are in no hurry to get in the house, (I know of inspectors that will overlook small stuff because the owners are trying to get in the house.)
Last but, in no means least, DON'T close until it is the way you want it!
Bring your lender to the table and have them explain it to the builder.
But, today is a day to be thankfull so forget about the house and remember your family.
