I told a GC (rich guy with an HIC Lic.) it would take me 3 weeks to complete all the finish work on an addition and partial remodel ($5000.00 job), he got the painter in there 2 days after I started and I am now 2 weeks and a couple days into the battle of the carpenter vs. the painter and he's telling me I have to cut outside in 38 degree/windy weather (Boston Ma area) so the painter can do his job. This is after I've been battleing for space to work tripping over the painters/flooring/everyones feet every day or staying home a day or two waiting for the floors to be done. I told him to pay me 10% on top to cut outside and he thought I was being ridiculous. So I walked off the job:furious: . This guy is constantly taking two steps forward and seven back. I've dealt with this behavior for two and half years now. What would you do???? oh and don't let the dog out!!!
