She called Scott and they are going to run the pipes thru the footer. Tomorrow Poco Verde will be out to pour the footer and start on the planter Wednesday.

Poco Verde called and told us that they were going to try and file for the wall permit today. Debbie Moles called and said that the plumbers would be out Thursday to set the sheer. Footer for the planter was dug by Poco Verde. Several pipes for the pool were broken when the footer was dug down to proper depth.

Poco Verde arrived and started demolition on planter. They removed all 4 walls of the planter including the water sheer.

Start of 30 day contract

Tuesday, January 17th, 2006

Debbie Moles called and left a message that the starting date for work would be Wednesday the 18th of January. Poco Verde will file for a permit for the outer wall and begin demolition on the planter.


Friday, January 13th, 2006

Debbie Moles called to let me know that the starting date would be Tuesday the 17th of January, so all work should be complete by February 15, 2006. She needed to get in touch with the ROC inspector to verify the complaint had been canceled. Scott and Bob would be out Monday to look over everything that needs to be redone. The wok pot risers would be started on Tuesday and the wok pot fountains would be complete by Wednesday. Demolition would start also on Tuesday.

Week 42

Thursday, January 12th, 2006

Debbie Moles called to let me know that the inspector for Paddock (Gene) was out today to look over the project. She stated the he agreed that the walls were the worst he had seen and needed to be replaced per plan. She offered 2 plans of action.
• Plan 1. Issue money back on the planter and offer a 2 year warranty.
• Plan 2. Fix it per plan with a 30 day extension for time needed to rebuild the planter and waterfall. After 30 days, they will pay $50.00 in cash per day in penalties up to $500.00. The 30 days do not include the time needed to plaster and the pool startup.
Both plans require I close the complaints with the R.O.C.
I asked her if the wall that needs the permit would also be included since it was cracking and falling down. She seems to think that would not be a problem but had to check with Nancy Graham and would let me know if it would extend the 30 day time limit.
I agreed to the second plan and she will fax me the addendum.
The wok pots and concrete risers will be fixed Monday or Tuesday.
The addendum will not include the side property wall due to it was not included in the ROC complaint. But they would fix it if needed.

Debbie Moles faxed over addendum #47525 that states 3 walls of the planter will be rebuilt to plan. They will have 4 weeks to finish the work.
I signed and faxed it back to her

Need Permit

Friday, January 6th, 2006

Week 41

Thursday, January 5th, 2006

Work on back wall starts. Scott Dilliam called and wanted to know if I had spoken with the neighbors about the wall. I told him that I had explained to Debbie Moles I was not going to make promises I did not know if I could keep.

No Permit Needed

Wednesday, January 4th, 2006

Debbie Moles called to check status. No one has been here. She said that a permit was not required for the wall on the south side, but will make sure.


Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006

Debbie Moles called to check status. She said that the raising of the back wall shall be complete by Friday. I asked her about the wall that was moved on the south side of the house, and if permits were ever secured for the job. I told her that the footing on that wall were not to Gilbert AZ. code.
