About six years ago, my partner and I obtained a plot of land and designed a lake apartment to be built from the ground up. We hired a local general contractor to help us finalize the plans and handle the construction process. The general contractor then sub contracted a licensed electrician, plumber and certified Heating as well as Air Conditioning supplier to take care of these specialized and essential systems. Coordinating this group of servicemen was an absolute nightmare. Once the walls of the lake apartment were framed in, all of us needed the electrician to install the wires. We waited on the plumber to install the water and drainage pipes. The Heating as well as Air Conditioning contractor delayed our project by various weeks. We eventually discovered that the Heating as well as Air Conditioning contractor did not have access to a sheet metal fabrication shop. They subcontracted the fabrication of our duct system, and while all of us waited around for the duct plan to be created and installed, the lease on our rental property ran out. My partner and I had no choice but to put our belongings in storage and move in with my parents. We were fortunate that my parents could accommodate us, or we’d have been staying at a hotel. The rental on the storage facility for our furniture was plenty luxurious. The entire construction process was extremely frustrating. Once the duct plan was finally in arena, all of us then realized that the Heating as well as Air Conditioning contractor was not installing the make and model of oil furnace we’d agreed upon. This caused an additional delay, and all of us didn’t trust a single thing the Heating as well as Air Conditioning professional said or did.
