Overall this is a great site for discussing the owner-builder process, and it has been a great asset to me in the building of my home. Thanks to everyone who contributes directly and indirectly to keeping this site interesting and helpful.

Waiting on the HVAC guy to get his work done.  Mike worked on the list and got everything done by Thursday so drywall could start BUT the HVAC contractor still needs to complete his work so we are waiting. All he needs to do is fix the dryer vent that was put in the wrong place. Which they put there even after I told them it could not go there. They must of thought I was just a silly girl and couldn’t possibly know what I was talking about...guess what, I am a silly girl and the vent can't go there! And they need to run another airline to the loft, which is a change that we decided on after the finished running the ducts.  We waited 3 days for him to call us back the first time to tell us he would be here within the week. We waited all week... well tell Wednesday night... before I called to get a day and time he would get the work done. (No response) And I'm still waiting to here back from him since he did not show up.  Called him again on Friday to see how much longer we'd be waiting... no call back. Even 'accidentally' called him at 1:00 AM, it was honestly an accident, I have to get up at 1 with the baby and have an alarm set on my phone, I noticed the next day that I called him so I must have hit another button, as I frantically beat on the phone to shut off the oh so annoying 1 am alarm (can you tell I'm a little tired) that redialed the last number. Log indicated that the call only lasted 22 seconds so I'm guessing I didn't reach him. You would hope that you would not need it but it wouldn’t hurt to have a clause in the contracts with subs regarding an acceptable timeline for them to RETURN CALLS.  They haven’t been paid yet either so I don’t get it.

I also talked to another concrete company to compare pricing but have not heard back, but that one has only been since Friday.

So we're waiting...
