Default RE: Builder Screw Up

Brad1 - 5/17/2007 11:56 PM

Having a new home built. The drywall was hung this week. This evening, I noticed that the drywall installers went right over an outlet box with drywall. I took pictures of every wall of the house after the electrical inspection, and before the drywall was hung. Sure enough,one of mypictures shows the box (on the framing) that was covered with drywall. I text messaged the subcontractor letting him know that I found a box covered with drywall, but I'm not telling him where.

Needless to say, I'm pissed.
You are kidding me, right? You need to get a grip! [img]../images/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Most people have the misconception that construction is merely about hammering nails, pouring concrete, erecting steel and laying block. Thats BS! It's more about relationships! Owner-Contractor, Contractor-Subcontractor, etc. A bad relationship with your builder is not something you want! A good strong relationship is worth a great deal to both of you. COMMUNICATE with him and it will pay off!

Don't be a Richard Cranium.
