New house foundation question

Posted by Andy on October 26th, 2001 11:19 AM

We are in the process of building our first home. The house is in the final stages of getting the drywall hung. We are located in Missouri where you have more clay than dirt. When it rains fairly hard we wind up with about 3 inches of water in the basement. At this time there is a sump pump hole but no pump is in there yet. They have not hung the rain gutters or slopped the back fill away from the foundation yet. Is this a normal thing to see water in the basement at this time? And will it stop once they get the gutters hung and the back fill sloped?
