    And leaving early all the time.

    Trev Shaw apparently.
    His quality of work was excellent, can't complain about that at all.

    It was just how long it took...anyway it was wonderful this morning, all clean and bright, and so lovely not to have to push a button for water....

    Wow. Final check today.
    Builder took rubbish away and came back.
    Plumber turns up.

    Now a few days ago I had complained about the time frame and excessive beer breaks and plumber said oh we'll negotiate a discount.

    So I deducted $500.
    Today plumber denies everything.
    Certain aspects of work to be done, the discount, the time frame, everything.
    He says - to builder - oh extra materials (I accounted for), plus rubbish (No, included), plus extra work (what, I let builder off some work, not added any), say extra $1500.

    I said no.


    Plumber says 2 weeks is normal to do a bathroom, they know, been doing it 11 years.

    Actually plumber became one in 2016, and started own business April 2019. I looked it up.

    I said I am not arguing, if he wants to, he can take it to Disputes.

    At which point they left.

    Also, builder told us he was to get $300 inc parts originally.
    Well, invoice says:


    Plumbing materials $395.00
    Plumbing Labour $1,300.00
    GST $254.25
    Total $1,949.25


    Builder materials $2,300.00
    Builder labour $3,200.00
    Extra building materials $360.00
    GST $879.00
    Total $6,739.00 $6,239.00 Less $500 for over time frame


    Invoice Total $8,688.25
    Deposit Paid 1 Oct $4,137.13
    To pay $4,551.12
    Actually PAID remaining 16 November $4,051.12 $8,188.25

    If he had said upfront I wouldn't mind, but lying every time he opened his mouth....

    I have found until early this year he was an apprentice in Auckland.
    So qualified, rushed down here and set up shop.

    Which is fine...but saying 11 years? Yeah right.
