I’m sitting here tonight basically too pissed to even compose a simple entry. I’m just so mad that we’re basically stuck with having to consider alternatives since we won’t be able to have an 8′ finished ceiling in the basement. The basement ceiling was supposed to hide all of the HVAC as well as plumbing systems but because of either lack of supervision, knowledge or just plain not giving a sh!t our GC has now left us with no other choice. He made the mistake and he should rip it up? Not our GC, he continues to remind us that he doesn’t have the money to do so, forget the fact that he has been paid enough to take us through completion of framing and roofing. We’re stuck!! No way out!!! The architect is sending us options however we still won’t be able to achieve the ceiling height and we’ll need soffits. I still feel that our GC should be responsible for digging it up and doing it correctly, plus it actually makes more sense financially. It was on the plans, how can someone mess this up? I just can’t say anything more tonight, too mad and feeling dejected.
