This “house of horrors” was a remodeling nightmare for one family in Cleveland, Ohio. The remodel was supposed to make the house more accessible for a motorized wheelchair, instead, the changes have definitely not improved things. The situation has led to a lawsuit being filed by the family for $175,000 to recover costs on work that was incomplete or shoddily done. ProCode Construction alleges that the family did not uphold their end of the contract and had too many change orders for the project to remain manageable.
