Amy and Phil found out they were expecting another child and in July 2012 decided to have an addition put on their home.  They talked to a contractor and excitedly planned the additional two bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper level of their home.

 

The contractor took a large deposit and waited.  A couple months went by and they began to worry.  Further investigation showed the contractor had many other complaints against the company.   

 

They did not even have a roof on their home in October.  Amy and Phil decided that they needed to make sure this did not happen to anyone else and pursued the contractor in court.   

 

As if the stress of trial and a home that was torn apart, their baby was very ill with a rare condition.  They lost their baby at 21 weeks in the middle of the fight against the contractor.   

 

The following businesses are sponsoring a fundraiser for this couple:

 

Service Doctor Remodeling & Design 

U Cook Entertaining Cooking School 

Razor’s Edge Salon for Men and Women

Towne Centre Retirement Community

Oh, Christine - what a heart breaking story.   They can get a new house, money can be replaced - but to lose a child - that is so sad.

  Best wishes for a very successful fundraiser.

Christine~I hope this is a very successful event in your community. It sure sounds like this family could use the support, and the publicity about scammers is good information to get out in the community.

Christine--It is so nice of you to post this and get the word out for this family.  Sounds like they can use all of the love and support the community has to offer.  I wonder if you should mention the name of the company to warn others....

I agree Fred.  The stress of suing the builder is bad enough but to lose a child in the process is devastating.

Liz,  I hope so too.  They had contacted the newspaper, police, everyone they could think of when it happened.  When nothing could be done, they decided to try to stop this from happening to anyone else.

Pat, There is a link to the newspaper article.  Hopefully the contractor won't be in business.  This wasn't the only couple that got scammed.  Once this lawsuit came to light others said they had been taken advantage of.
