Keep it all friendly, have a pot of coffee on hand for the guys. A little kindness is usually repaid, but let them know they are still working.

No one hope this more than I do. This is the first home my husband and I have purchased as well as the first time doing a remodel. We have our entire life savings wrapped into this investment. If it goes bad, there is no room to recover. This information that you all are sharing with me helps me more than these simple words can express and it certainly comforts me to have you all as a resource. Thank you again for all the help.

Absolutely!! Coffee and donuts are a must have to start a hard workday!! Sadly, I won't be on the site each day to watch over them. I have to trust they are doing what they should. I do have a monitoring system set up in the house to check should I need to though.

So, in another thread, I saw that things went south, right?

Since you are a military spouse, you should have access to a free military lawyer who can give you advice. There are supposed to be extra protections for military members and their family.
