Haha Kim usually I am extremely assertive but I feel like (at this point) I will fly off the handle and say something I will regret. My husband plans on calling him today after work. After this is the second week in a row our pool deck was supposed to be done. So again.. here it is Wednesday and the footers aren't done so we won't be able to get an inspection tomorrow which means the pool deck cannot be poured Friday which means... again it won't be done this week.
So frustrated for you [emoji36] I am the same. Worried that I might either cry or loose it! We still have outstanding work to be done which I thought was scheduled for this week. Apparently it is next week. We will see.

Yep, another week has gone by and no work even tho PB made excuses for why they weren't here at the beginning of the week. Assured us that at the least our bubblers would be fixed today (friday..) nada...

They got the footers done... they need to be inspected but (and you can’t make this stuff up) they didn’t line them up correctly so that the enclosure will sit flush against the house... lol all I can do is laugh at this point!

I was almost excited for you for a second until I kept reading. The footers need to be redone. I know you just want this over with but honestly this is a big stuff up. If you can’t be happy with the process you need to be at least happy with the end result.

Grounding passed inspection tho so that’s a win lol stay tuned... 5 months 4 days into project.

ANND they rescheduled decking for Monday. I honestly don't think they had any intention on having decking done today because (and I had left this last tid bit out...) I called in the inspections Tuesday when I saw the contractor hadn't done so... tee hee...I mean how do you plan on pouring the deck without the inspection. They were all scrambling when the inspector showed up... "we didn't call in the inspection?" HA... caught you in another lie yet again. So I sort of already knew they weren't actually coming out for decking today. BUT the bubblers are fixed as well as the footers for the enclosure.. so PROGRESS RIGHT?!

Good work being one step ahead. I think you need to be with pbs... or at least ours! Very pleased to hear both bubblers and footings have been fixed. It’s sad when you get to the point of expecting no work to happen. Slowly but surely but neither of us should hold our breath for completion. Our pool itself is thankfully finished but I don’t think my boys see the lack of slide as a minor outstanding job!

[emoji15] oh gee. Not good at all. Glad you have all this documented. Don’t worry this will end one day. Still waiting for that day but I know it will come. Hang in there. On a positive note the work that has been done looks great from what I can see.

Yes. One of the sub contractors has been working really hard for us. He is actually starting his own business building pools as he just got his contractors license. He is a good dude, I will def support him in the future. I wish I could just pay him directly to finish the job but I am sure our current PB would sue us for breach of contract or something... but almost done... trying to hang in there!

It’s nice to have someone on your side doing a good job. I hope his business does well and I’m sure it will. You are very close to being finished. It will happen!
