Venting builder frustrations
I just wanted to vent a little, things are moving so slowly. We have been framing for 2 months. We still don't have shingles, exterior trim has been left half finished for 3 weeks now. The owner of the company is a friend of ours, and have actually built a home through him before. It is coming down to the superintendent of our job site, he has been building homes for 30 years but doesn't seem to know how to schedule things, or has just taken on more projects than he can handle.
There is one of his other clients feeling our pain and we are on the same page. Our builder says we will have a new super the beginning of next week, and I sure have my fingers crossed.
I just am having a hard time understanding why a home he is building was started on the 23rd of March, (from foundation up) already has exterior trim complete, shingles, plumbing, electric and HVAC and starting the exterior stone and stucco. While we started the 28th of January, and struggling just to get them to come out and work.
Sorry I don't want to be that person who is just cranky but here recently I realize the majority of our friends have not built a home, and don't understand the frustrations. And just wanted to vent to people who might have more of a understanding or recommendations.
The builder really builds a beautiful, detailed, well built home and our previous experience was never close to this frustrating. Right now we are 3 months behind, and about a month and a half I can understand due to weather and changes we made but there is a month and a half unaccounted for.
thanks for listening to my rant, just wanted to get it off my chest.
