Hi does anyone live in Mills Branch Village? We live in Woodspring Forest, and we found a home in Mills Branch that we really love, and are curious about the neighborhood. We have had a lot of car break-ins in Woodspring Forest. We have lived here in Woodspring Forest for almost 7 years now, and are ready for a change of scenery and more room for our growing family. I love that Mills Branch has more trees.
We almost bought the house on tbut found out it has a huge hole behind/under the foundation leading to a pit of despair. The whole house is leaning..even after they "fixed" the foundation. We called the people who fixed it, and they wouldn't answer. The house on Heather Lake Ct in Woodstream was nice, until we walked upstairs and felt the floors sinking and leaning. So Woodstream is out. The two story in Mills Branch that we are buying doesn't have these issues. We are inspecting it today. Hoping nothing comes up. We are sick of house hunting lol
Good luck. Mills Branch seems to be a well-maintained village all the way around. Nice parks etc.. I don't like that cars are parked all up and down the street on Appalachian Trails. And the homes/streets by the school get crowded with parking during school events like any other neighborhood. And there have been complaints about summer swim team parking on the street around the pool.
Yes..thank you. My husband was just complaining about the cars in the street. Lol. But it's not that bad on our soon to be street. I'm not bothered by the swim meets bc I grew up swimming summer and year round.. So I understand the traffic on weekends. Brings back good memories :) The contract was signed so we are going to have to deal with it (ha ha)..Although the house isn't near the school or the pool. Echo Falls is a nice quiet road :) I just hope we don't have as many car break ins in Mills Branch. We always caught two kids checking for unlocked vehicles on our cameras.. In Woodspring Forest.
I love the white church too :) They have a big area cleared off to the side of the church entering the woods..Looks like I found a place to walk my mini horse..since it isn't right on the church property.
Never knew home buying could be so nerve wracking. The inspection went well, and they agreed to fix the upstairs AC, and cut the leaning pine tree in the backyard, that was hovering over the neighbors house. They cut the tree down yesterday and the appraisal was ordered today.
We're so ready to move so we can have more room for our big family, and saving money instead of throwing it away renting. God has blessed us with the rent house we've lived in for almost 7 years now.
Closing day, on the home we are buying, is July 18th and we have our host child, Daria, from Poland, staying with us June 26 to July 31. Exciting and nervous. She speaks Polish.. Zero English.. And we are moving (if the appraisal goes well) at the same time. She was supposed to stay with us last December, but her orphanage didn't get her passport in time since it takes months. But she is definitely coming in 6 days, so I'm excited and need to brush up on my Polish (lol). Im half slavic and will be using Google Translate and a phone app to help me communicate with her. Lol. We have a few people that can help us translate since they are from Poland.. But they can't stay with us 24/7, so this is going to be a fun and interesting experience. :)
We have lived in Woodstream for nearly 20 years. Only part of it has foundation issues, and there seems to be a fault line that those issues follow. Please don't bash the whole village when only a small portion has a problem. Other homes have sold easily with no repercussions.

Well that is your opinion. I also have a friend who lived in Woodstream, and she too had foundation issues in a one story home. So that makes 3 homes in Woodstream with foundation issues. I'm sure there are homes in other neighborhoods with foundation problems, but so far it's only been Woodstream. We have walked through many homes this past month, and no issues in Bear Branch Village, Sand Creek Village, and Mills Branch Village. Please do not judge me and make this about you personally. I am allowed to have an opinion, and can decide whether or not I want to buy a home, in a neighborhood that appears to have major foundation issues.
Ummm hate to tell you- there are 2 kinds of houses in this area- ones that have foundation issues ( and have been piered) and ones that will have foundation issues ( and will need to be piered). A basic understanding of geology will serve home buyers well. The whole of SE TX is prone to this- and while a proper foundation helps - you can not outsmart Mother Nature. So Woodstream vs Mills Branch is a non issue in this arguement. Sooner or later all houses in this area are going to have foundation issues. Lol I did my research 15 years ago when we moved to this area. Not rocket science 🙄
I thought you were moving to Montana or something like that. Congrats on the new home.
Thank you! We were so close to moving to Montana. But they put the job on "freeze"..and they wouldn't tell anyone why.. Seemed really fishy. Maybe one day we will. It was so pretty. But I'm excited about our new house.

I'm not talking about minor issues. The house on Windy Gorge 2915 was leaning sideways. They placed a golf ball in the kitchen and it slammed into the wall. The door upstairs hit the wall when we opened it and wouldn't stay still while open. There was a massive hole under the foundation and it was found bc it rained and washed the dirt out revealing the hole. They gave us the paper work showing it was fixed..but obviously not good enough for us to feel secure enough to buy the house. It could cost thousands to fix. There was a big raised line of grass in the backyard too. I don't know about the other two on Windy Gorge bc one had a pool and the other a small back yard so we didn't look. The one on Heather Lake Ct had foundation issues too. A crack outside on the brick and felt really bad leaning upstairs. These homes we're built in 1995 and 96. The home we bought was built in 1990 and zero foundation issues.
My friend lived in the newer part of Woodstream, and they had to pour bags of sand under their house, bc of foundation issues. They ended up moving out. Her parents live in Greentree and they don't have foundation issues.
So we just met the previous owner of the house and he is a pastor at Christ the King here in Kingwood. He said he and his wife have been praying over the house asking God for the right people to move in. Well a month ago my Husband applied at Christ the King for a side job. Lol. It's funny how God does things :) God made me smile in so many ways today, I can't contain it.
