renovations

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted about our apartment renovations. Things have gone downhill very fast. Our contractor left the country because “his brother was sick and dying.” He left his employees in charge of finishing the work, and his phone has been off for 3 weeks now. We were very upset with the fact that we couldn’t get in touch with our contractor, but we were at least happy his employees continued to come to work. They took plenty of days off and we had to watch them like hawks to fix multiple mistakes, but they continued working. Finally, last night they decided they couldn’t work anymore without receiving more money from either their boss or us. We have already paid for the work to be completed – especially since they are 2 weeks over schedule. We refused to pay them again, so they walked out last night. Luckily, there is very little to be finished now, but I am beyond angry about the situation. I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, and I am waiting to see if the contractor ever comes back and contacts us.

In the meantime, we are lucky we didn’t pay the final payment and we will use that money to finish the work with another contractor.
