A parking ticket in front of your own lot and a ticket for having a plastic cover on your license plate? Wow... that is low... how far North did you go?

Maybe a couple of cartons of Labatt 50 to the cop shop at Christmas time would help unruffle things, or are there special parking police for out of towners?

We concluded that a nasty neighbour who did not like construction noise called the fuzz because that road is infrequently patrolled.

Could be... but it was the cop who wrote the tickets.. My how times have changed. I come from a family of cops,and firemen and I can't imagine any of them doing something like that.

Sorry to hear about you bad luck. But the house is looking good. Don't let it get you down. I know what hell looks like. It looks like a fried main wire harness 700 miles form home. You are not in hell yet.

Carry on my friend.

Not many physical changes to show.
Plumbing is roughed in, HVAC roughed in and electrical started.
Framers still haven't finished interior divisions which is holding up the electricians.
I swear to God those fucking framers have delayed me at least a month with their sporadic activity.
HOWEVER......windows and doors are still on backorder so is there really a panic?
Mapping the electrical with the electrician used up a lot of brain cells and now 2 days later I want to move a few things.

About what I have come to expect from contractors these days. Actually it seems like your ahead of the curve. As far as the electrical, I came to the conclusion a long time ago that thinking and reworking is progress.

Unreliable contractors is the reason I do all my own work, well, that and I'm cheap (frugal).
