Description

These stories "explicate the dire straits entered by an 'average' couple, Andrew and Lucy Young, when they decide to contract with an independent homebuilder to construct their relatively modest dream home. Despite taking a number of common-sense precautions in choosing their builder, the Youngs soon found their project mired in mismanagement by one David Allen Zovath, an apparent con man well-versed in taking advantage of the state's lax-to-non-existent regulation of the residential building industry."
