I signed a contract the with
Prior to this and per the direction of the builder, I hired the concrete/excavator company to perform site excavation and preparation, which had to be done before the builder could begin.
For the 4-5 weeks after excavation and ground prep was complete, the builder continually promised (provided specific dates)
on which he and his crew would show up to being building the barn.
Throughout the month of OCT, each promised date would come and go. Builder would not call, e-mail, or otherwise inform me that he was (again) delaying the start date. Each time, he provided a subsequent start date. Each time the NEXT start date would arrive, the same thing would occur - absolutely no notice, no communication, some unfounded excuse of why he could not start, and a promise of yet another start date.
Into November, the same thing. 11 NOV, 15 NOV, and finally 18 NOV.
On several of these days, I had actually taken a vacation day off (from work) to be there for the start of the build to make sure my expectations were in line with builder's understanding. No contact, no call, no e-mail ... just a no-show.
When I called him (as I always had to when he didn't show up) when he didn't show up on 18 NOV, builder said he wasn't showing up. He became belligerent with me, used profanity, telling me to "F*ck off" because I DARED to ask him why he kept bailing out on me and failing to show up as promised, and then he quit.
I have witnesses that HEARD him as he YELLED at me on the phone. "F*CK YOU! I'M DROPPING YOU LIKE A HOT
POTATO!" were his EXACT words.
Since the builder had pulled the building permits in HIS name, not only was I out $363 for those useless permits, but I had to pay for them AGAIN once I found another builder. (PMYC eventually refunded a small portion of those permit costs, but only because the county refunded a small portion to him).
So in the middle of November in Michigan, just days away from our first big snow, and with $17,000 worth of materials ALREADY bought, paid for, and sitting in my driveway,
If I had to have a pole barn built and
The builder refused to return the full amount of the deposit, insisting they should be paid for the unauthorized and inaccurate plans. I agreed to the reduced amount simply to get it done. Even with that, months went by with no deposit returned. I made multiple phone calls and was assured the check would be forthcoming. Most recently 8/13/14, I again spoke with the builder. He apologized for the delay and said he would send the check immediately. Ten days later, still no check.
Do not hire this builder. He appears to be a scam artist. I read positive reviews on his website, but I now suspect they were all fictional.
We also needed 12 piers for added stability.
The work started on a Friday and after inspections from the village, Arl Hts, the work was completed by Tues afternoon.
