Excerpt from "What to do after a reno goes off the rails", Law Times by Bev Cline:

The personal nature of dream home construction lends itself to dispute, especially as the construction proceeds, agrees Howard Wise, a certified specialist in construction law and partner in the construction law group at Goodmans LLP in Toronto.

 

“From the owner’s perspective, renovating or building their dream home is very personal, opposed to commercial construction.  The owner lives in the home every day and every little thing that isn’t exactly right, from his perspective, becomes a larger issue over time.

 

“The problem can be that the homeowner is looking for perfection, or worse still, for a result that cannot be achieved due to construction limitations or budget restrictions.”
