The truth about builders

In the beginning of 2012 one of my clients taught me a very valuable lesson which I would like to quote before explaining our situation:

“In the beginning it is OUR builder,
after a while it changes to YOUR builder,
then, it becomes the #!@* builder
and finally it is the NEW builder.”

I didn’t believe her at the time, but it turned out exactly as she predicted. Therefore, as from January this year, we are searching for a new builder.  We did not have a bad builder or a dishonest builder or even a rude builder, we simply had a slow builder… a very slow builder.  It was such a difficult decision to make, but things kept dragging on and on without much progress, until we eventually asked ourselves, “When is enough, enough?”

However, it is 2013. We had a wonderful rest during the builder’s holiday, developed plenty of new dreams for our house and hopefully this year will be a great one! Happy New Year! I wish all of you the best!
