The first general contractor started then wouldn't return phone calls. The second one said he really wanted the job then three weeks later admitted he took another job, and didn't feel like I was paying him enough for the work he hadn't done. The third one had recommendations hasn't even been hired yet, but hasn't returned my phone call in almost a week now. So I may be looking for number four in the near future...

Sounds like general contractors are in charge of the planet.  Do you ever consider checking Better Business Bureau or on-line sources for customer complaints against contractors?  A friend of mine didn't look, but should have.

What am I , chopped liver.  LOL!

My options were limited. The first contractor was just a guy off craigslist that didn't have a business. The second contractor had a business, but the reviews were mixed. I assume at this point I think it was because he would take jobs that paid better/liked better and ignore the projects he didn't so different people had different experiences with him. The third contractor was a referral who when I contacted him didn't seem that interested. With Irma coming up the coast it's going to make it even more difficult to get a contractor to come out and do the work I fear.

Check the legal docket too ... my friend's general contractor had a long list of unresolved complaints against him, including not paying off the sub-contractors.  Warning, warning ... Will Robinson!

I am sorry to say that with Irma, bidding for contractors is probably going to be damn near impossible for a couple years...

Yes Irma is going to make this whole situation that much worse for me. :(

I'm to old for that s***. My mother found a guy in AR who's interested in moving into one of the units and reno'ing while he lives in Starke FL. He says he needs two weeks, but they've been open for four months at this point so what's a couple more weeks. He'll be contractor #4. :(

You can always hope.  And advertise a "fixer-upper"  There are fools everywhere..
