Julie and I had a long discussion today about how we should move forward with the house if we can’t get everything worked out with our GC. Basically we came up with 3 options: sell the house, redesign the house and make it smaller or not do all of it now and phase some of it. Even just talking about this gets me upset, we’ve possibly been put in a position where financially none of these make sense. If we have to pay to fix all of the issues that have been created by our GC and then construct it the way it was supposed to be built then I don’t see how we can justify all of the added expense. In a perfect world we would ask for our GC to refund what was already paid to him, however he’s already told Julie that the money we advanced him has been spent. Plus, I found out today about 2 more jobs that he has recently completed where the home owners have been experiencing major issues with his construction. This just isn’t a good situation and I need to find a way to make it right so we can finally get in our house.
