Damn... I’d be mad as hell!Well, the garage is on hold for now. The contractor has used up 2/3rds of the funds with less than 1/3rd of it done. He wanted 30+% more to finish it. We asked him why the big change and why his figures of what he shows that he billed us for does not match the invoices we've paid. No good reason on the 1st and no reply on the 2nd. The accounting difference was $30k. Someone can't do math or is trying to hide things. As of today it was a mutual parting of the ways. Now we need to find another general to take over where #1 left off. I was hoping to have been in it by now but not this year. I've tarped off whats up to protect it from the rain.

I'm supposed to meet up with one new potential general today. Luckily he does not know the previous dude. We agreed that taking on a project like this will be tough but he is up for it. We have a truck at work that has similar traits as its been to two other shops for 10 years and $500+k out of the owners pocket. When people agree to take on problem projects from others and get them done, that really makes them shine. For sure we are not happy but are holding ourselves together with help from Him who's birthday is tomorrow. So far our initial plan of the one section being a deck extension is neat. The viewing area of the back bay is nice. I'm hoping we get this wrapped up and done asap next year especially since the permits have a time limit.
