Thank you for your comments.
Unfortunately your comments are nothing but appalling in short and it seems that you and Michael Schienke from Vorbild Architecture not taking any responsibility for changing project plan blaming professional tradesman for delays which were caused by Michael. But I think it would be only fair to tell our side of the story.
From the beginning of the project they were mistakes with drawings like one chimney stack instead of two. Old attic floor which by your instruction had to be removed due to rot, internal walls which they had to be taken down and replaced, structural cracks where our operatives had to stitched, extra power points which were not provided by architect.
I could go on with list of the extras which were added and approved by architect and yourself.
In terms of burglary we lost significant amount of tools from site and not because site was not secured. I believe you were compensate for items you lost but not us which I think was not fair. If you would like to have night porter on site then you could request that in our estimate and we would be happy to provide one.
Our estimate was provided and agreed as you know before we commence project by you and architect. As you pointed out our estimate was detail and anything else will be addition/extra to the project.
Specification which were provided said that we should remove wall paper from the walls. This is what we priced for. Unfortunately we informed you and your appointed architect that we don't know condition of the walls behind wall paper and there is possibility of wall render coming of the lath (happy to provide copy of the estimate and also please see email sent by our foreman on Mon 10/04/2017 10:27 informing about structural condition of the building). I'm happy to provide copy of the estimate which you and architect accepted.
Re: Garden Shed,
There is no mention in our estimate about cost of the garden shed. There was discussion with Michael from Vorbild about pricing garden shed before we moved in but that never was utilized. I would advice speak with Michael from Vorbild Architecture about it. Only thing we heard was that you wanted to do it but there was no agreed cost for it.
Itemized cost were provided and there was no hidden cost. I'm not entire sure what you mean £tenth of thousands and I'm not surprised why Michael from Vorbild didn't inform you about cost difference between removing wall paper and removing entire first floor walls and ground floor walls. It seems that he only was concern about his reputation
All communication were going from Michael which he did realized that you are not aware of construction schedule or planing. It seems that there was no explanation from Michael about extra cost or timing. Even by logic removing wall and replacing instead of removing wall paper is different in time and cost.
Over all I happy to discuss it our differences further with appointed surveyor to put some light on issues you having.
