Haha, we also got the wrong color jacuzzi, and the wrong color trim, etc.



I was all up in the contractors shit every step of the way to make sure that didnt happen.
And there was still about 4 different things that got about halfway done wrong before I could get him to fix them :rolleyes:

Ugh, we were there every week, and we should've been there every day handing them the nails.

And whoever cut the drywall for the outlets must have one leg shorter than the other or something.

Just trying to give you the benefit of our experiences :D

If I built again, it'd go better.

But apparantly, I'm going for the restoration route instead
This is actually our second house that we've built, so we do have some experience. This time around, though, we feel that we have more control over the process. Plus we do get along much better with the builder rep.
