RE: More on level of Detailing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Yes Bill, I forgot to include that next step.  I was thinking about the
lawsuit end when the contractor is sitting in the witness chair telling all
about how the engineer didn't detail the project adequately.

What I have found is that the custom home
contractor is always the smartest guy on the project until there is a
problem.  Then it's "I'm not an engineer, I'm just an old time, down to
earth all around good guy contractor, I dunno nothin bout no
engineerin".

That is, until you give YOUR solution. Then, he will inform you that in
the twenty-seven years he's been doing this, he's never seen anyone try
to do what you're suggesting.
