Too good to be true

I was very excited to see walls going up on the addition. My enthusiasm was apparently too hasty. Matt and Tom were set to put up more walls while I was working the mail route on Saturday but when I got home everything looked the same as when I left. Upon closer inspection of the plans, Tom discovered that the foundation crew omitted some tie-downs required by the county. There is no point putting up any more walls until the crew comes back, drills out the foundation where the straps need to be located and installs them. Really? Are we back to this already? Would it be too much to ask to progress past 2 steps forward 1 step back? Can I get 4 steps forward? 3?
