starting this next week,
we lost this job 4 yrs. ago to another co.. they got fired along with the engineer and architect.
now to come and fix it.
the upper story walls will all come down and be rebuilt, along with the roof.
we rebid 70k in euros and have till 17 April 2014 to complete the first part.
the second consists of the interior and is 175k in work.
i filed a stop order for the moment here, i have found several issues that need to be addressed before I start, I got everyone a little ticked at me, but I have evry legal right to do so.
There are water filtration issues not priced(water is penetrating from all orafices)
there are structural issues that need to be addressed(there is a few structural beams missing)
And their engineer has not signed all the waivers and permits
this brick overhang is has not been done to my standards, its basically balanced on top of the wall with no ancorage to the wall, the wood is starting to rot and the crappy job of cementing the brick ledge to the roof has either raised, or the brick ledge has dropped an 1/8th of an inch.
the pointing seems like its been done in the dark, and algae has found a new home
I have plced a stop order for until the engineer has us do a change order, or absolves any and/or all responsibilities/liabilities for said overhang.
I am getting sick of seeing all these problems with expensive custom built homes.
This is one of the many problems that have arised.
The HO's seem to wanna put all contractors in the same basket, by blaming me in some way.
I said basically after she got mad at me for the stop order, "hey 'mam, its your house and I could give a **** if it crumbles to the ground, Its important after that I dont get the blame, These are your problems and I am here as a solution, if choosen, but not the problem"
