3. You have some love from me! Have remodeled many houses
and had the best, the not so good and even less good contractors. Last contractor
wasn't supervising his supervisor--I was--and it drove me nuts! I had one contractor who was so good (not cheap, either) that when I moved from Missouri to Nebraska I paid for the contractor to come up and work on the new house--and put him up in town! It was worth every damn penny. I had no complaints. None.

If it's any consolation, now we are building a house to replace the one that burned down almost 3 years ago. I didn't want to do it--but it's impossible to sell a lot right now where we live--so we're taking advantage of loving our location to build our 'aging in place' home. The architect is the builder--and his brother and wife are in the company--and so far, so good. Some minor issues with their construction
supervisor, but the brother has been on the job supervising this week while steel beams were being set to support the house.

Yes, an agreement is an agreement. Stick to your guns and make them get it right.
