Olive Construction Inc. 8345 130th St. Blue Grass, Ia 52726 Olive Construction has failed to build me the house addition they agreed and were contracted to build. The list of mistakes are numerous. However, I will only illustrate 3 of the most annoying; from least to most. Olive Construction was not aware of codes regarding egress windows in bedrooms. Thus Olive Construction bought the wrong sized windows. Lacking integrity Olive Construction blamed this mistake on the blue prints which were designed by a licensed engineer.( The blue prints had obviously larger windows in the bedrooms than any other room.) Olive Construction then charged me an additional 1200 to purchase the proper size windows. Olive Construction failed to put in place the proper footings and settings for the crawl space access in a hallway closet. Olive Construction then refused to correct this mistake. Instead cut an unapproved hole in my basement wall that did not meet the 24 inch by 24 inch requirement for entering a crawl space. Olive Construction then wanted to charge me another 300 to correct this crawl space d"access" to the proper size. I already paid for one of their mistakes. I refused to pay for another of their mistakes. I had to hire someone else to correct this mistake. Olive Construction then refused to build the beautiful triple peak roof depicted in the blueprint. Lacking integrity once more Olive Construction again blamed it on the blue prints saying the blue prints were bad. Rather than owning up to the simple fact he was cutting corners and trying to reduce his costs. This part is the most heart breaking as my house now looks like 2 houses rammed together. For this addition it took Olive Construction over 3 months to build. This was only for the exterior. Nothing interior was done by this company. A proper and respectable company should have had it completed in under 2 months. Additionally, whenever my wife approached them about their extended time frame Olive Construction simply insulted her by repeatedly saying “Oh, you’re just getting excited.” Their extended build time also put my other contractors way behind and made it difficult to get them in to do their jobs. More so they say their specialty is windows and doors. I have a set of windows which sit noticeably angled due to their ineptitude.
