As those of you out there may have also been told as a child, if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all. I stopped writing posts for a while when we had to terminate our contract with the builder. We got the building permit transferred to ourselves to complete the project while we dealt with the sudden onslaught of unexpected liens from subcontractors the builder failed to pay.

We are exceedingly grateful to the subcontractors who were willing to work directly with us to help get the job done despite the pressures of this economy.
