Morningside Renovation

Our Journey Through The Renovation Process Of Our Future "Forever Home" In Morningside (Atlanta,GA)

You Want Us to Pay For Your Mistakes?

Our GC informed us that he isn’t going to pay for a new joist system for the basement which would get us closer to achieving what was on the plan.  Basically he won’t even try to remedy his mistake even though it still wouldn’t be correct.  So he doesn’t dig the basement area deep enough to give us the ceiling height that was written in the plans and now our choice is to either accept his mistake and us have a ceiling that is significantly lower or “WE” have to pay for an alternative?  That makes absolutely no sense.  There was nothing preventing him from digging deep enough he just measured wrong and refuses to admit it or make it right and then he tells Julie that he doesn’t have the funds to dig it up and do it correctly – and how is this fair? How does he not have the funds?  It’s beyond scary that he has already spent all of the money that we fronted him which financially should have taken him through framing and roofing.

I so want to be done with him and would but we would be upside down since we’ve already given him a substantial amount of money that he told Julie he’s already spent on other jobs – we’re his hostage.  We’re stuck and this could have been prevented with a little supervision and probably just “some” knowledge.  And now Julie wants me to have a meeting with him?  I just don’t see a point.
