It didn't happen to me, but sometimes I think it could.

I think there must be a secret international conglomeration of contractors that deliberately misread prints so that they create work for fellow contractors. Either that or your contractor gets around!

When our house was being built the electrician had a hard time reaching the top of the 14 ft. high hall way to install fire alarms, lights, etc. So he nailed a couple scrap pieces of 2x4 across the studs to use as a ladder.

2 days later when the dry wallers had finished my dear wife and I took a walk through the house and discovered that they had drywalled around these temporary 2X4 steps. Including bull nose finishing around all the edges. They even finished around the one board that stretched across the middle of a doorway.

We called the general contractor and when he arrived and saw what they had done he went apeshit. When we left he was yelling on the phone to the subs who had done the drywall work and seemed to be alternating between getting them over there that night to fix their screw-up and firing them on the spot.

I keep thinking of the guys who actually did the work calling the architect 8 kinds of idiot for designing such a pain in the neck skylight to nowhere.

D,

I can just picture that! I've met electricians and mechanics who, through their own attitudes or the attitudes of their supervisors, develop the idea that they are there to follow instructions, not to think. some sadly comical situations are usually the result

I've seen that type of stuff, more often than I'd of liked to.

And did the cad designer get yelled at for leaving off the revision triangle?
