thanks for explaining. i know what you went through. i'm working on one now that the owner (who happens to be the builder/contractor) moved into on saturday. and the house isn't even finished being painted on the inside. so i'm working around painters AND the residents and they have 2 dogs. it's a nightmare but he does pay well...and fired his old post-construction cleaner because his homes are really clean when i finish with them.thanks t, you explained it very well.
suzi, i started the work on dec 4th. i went 75 miles round trip, the 4th,6th,8th,10th,11th,12th, and 15th. my cousin helps me, she was with me everyday. we had to work around painters, workers, electricians,plumbers, cable guys, anybody and everybody, 2 days we didnt have any water. it was kinda hectic!!!davon
I am leaning in the direction of Ken here, I have never known of a builder to not want the job done for as cheap as possible.Wow. That must have been a job from hell. I do not know the rate for cleaning log cabins but I have plenty of experience with builders. On one hand 7 days is a ton of time to invest in a job, but on the other hand I see a builder expecting the world for next to nothing. You say he pays well so you might have lucked out.
Have you discussed pricing/hourly/daily rates with him at all?
