WE AGREED TO TERMS TO HAVE TOM DOYLE TEAR OUT OLD CABINETS IN KITCHEN, AND THREE BATHROOMS, AND REBUILD CUSTOM CABINETS IN THOSE FOUR ROOMS. A CONTRACT WAS SIGNED. WE PAID SOME OF THE MONEY UP FRONT, AGREEING TO PAY MORE AS THE TIME WENT BY, AND HE WAS DOING THE WORK.

TOM PROMISED TO HAVE THE WORK COMPLETED IN A MONTH. HE TORE THE KITCHEN OUT SO I COULD NOT USE IT, AND FOOLED AROUND FOR MONTHS. HE HAD A NEW GIRLFRIEND WHO WAS TAKING A LOT OF HIS TIME. WE KEPT PAYING HIM MORE OF THE PROMISED MONEY BECAUSE WE HAD SAID WE WOULD DO SO. HE WAS TELLING US HE COULD NOT GET THE WORK DONE BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER. MEANWHILE, I WAS HAVING TO EAT MOST OF OUR MEALS OUT, AND INCURRING LOTS OF EXPENSE. THE FINAL RESULT WAS... HE BROUGHT SOME OF THE CABINETS HE HAD MADE OVER AND PUT THEM IN MY KITCHEN.

I HAD TO PAY SOMEONE ELSE TO INSTALL THEM FOR ME. HE MADE A CABINET FOR ONE OF THE THREE BATHROOMS, AND TOLD US IT WOULD BE IN HIS DRIVEWAY.. THAT WE COULD COME OVER AND PICK IT UP. HE SAID HE WAS DONE WITH US, THAT HE HAD TO TAKE OTHER JOBS TO MAKE SOME MONEY AS HIS RENT WAS DUE.

WE WERE JUST OUT OF LUCK AS WE HAD PAID HIM ALL OF THE MONEY AGREED UPON IN THE CONTRACT. WE RENTED A TRAILER AND PICKED UP THE ONE BATHROOM CABINET. THE WORK WAS SHODDY, AND NOT THE AGREED UPON, PULL OUT CABINETS. WE HAD TO PAY SOMEONE ELSE TO INSTALL THIS ONE ALSO. STILL THERE ARE TWO BATHROOMS WHICH HE DID NOT EVEN ATTEMPT TO MAKE THE CABINETS FOR, AND WE GAVE HIM THE EXPENSIVE MATERIALS TO BUILD THEM.

ALL IN ALL, HE GOT OFF WITH ABOUT $4,000 OF OUR MONEY. HE TOLD US TO GO AHEAD AND TAKE HIM TO COURT.. THAT HE DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING, AND THERE WAS NOTHING WE COULD DO ABOUT IT. WE TALKED TO AN ATTORNEY WHO BASICALLY TOLD US THE SAME THING.
