Weather Forecast: Foggy With Widely Scattered Change Orders
Son of a bungholes did it! Finally got some clear weather for the landscape company to get back to work on the backyard, and they tear off the deck boards, and I get the news that we should replace the joists and ledger. Let's just add another 2.5% to that project cost, shall we? I've been waiting for this other shoe to drop. Not only was this whole project supposed to be completed last July (and we're coming up on the anniversary of the start date in April), but it's been a hard fight to keep the cost down to anywhere close to the original contract price. If these jokers were half as good at actually getting stuff done as they are at presentation and blowing smoke up my behind about delays, we'd have been done last summer.
