That brown stain on the bathroom baseboard

Tommy the plumber says that the discoloration of the baseboard in the master bathroom is probably due to moisture getting in where it shouldn't, and he figures that it's due to a bug in the shower cabinet construction. Contact the builder, he says, and they'll have to fix it for us because it's structural, and not caulking-related.

A representative from the builder's customer care department will be in next week to check it out.
