This guy will befriend you and promise you a quality work at a fair price. He always claims he needs money to buy more materials. He often tries theses scams on people building second homes so they are not around to see in person what is happening to their money. He does build you a structure but on close inspection you find nothing is built correctly. He likes to build in areas where there are little to no inspections done, like Vermont. When we tried to sue him we found he already has over 50 outstanding judgments against both he and his wife and it would be a waist of more money to go after him. This guy is really bad news stay away from him!

Tom Walsh scumbag

AUTHOR: Tim Martin - (United States of America)

I am the Tim Martin who is mentioned in this report. I would like to start by saying I know exactly who wrote it, Tom Walsh of Point Pleasant NJ. Tom is hated by everyone who knows him. His own mother had a restraining order against him when she was in her 70s because he was trying to steal her property. By his own admission he was a drug dealer most of his life. That
said, our children were friends and unfortunately this led to him and his wife; believed to be his cousin; siting next to us every day at the beach. He approached me to build a house for him 8 years ago in VT after researching how expensive it would be to build on this substandard lot he had bought for pennies. He knew exactly what it cost to build in VT, he doesnt miss a trick.  I had no clue . He described the lot as open, slightly sloping with no ledge. A small basic ski lodge was all he wanted.

This one of the cheapest most manipulating guys I have ever met, he was so cheap that he bought one of those plan books but would not pay for the plans he just kept enlarging the picture in the magazine. The lot was not sloping it was a cliff!!If you can imagine in a 30 foot deep house where the back FOOTING had to be poured 11 feet tall to match the footing in the front, It was nothing but ledge and he would not payfor any blasting or hammering, I leased an excavator and sat dropping a piece of granite on the shale ledge for 15 days straight to get a foundation hole. I almost lost my life lowering the well truck down the cliff in a blizzard, but Thelon and the short story is despite the small amount I was paid we never complained
and never stopped working. We just kept going. Tom Walsh showed up with some builder form NJ in a white jump suite who builds high end houses in NJ and told Tom it didnt meet his standards , If he knew how little we were paid he might
have understood. Tom asked me to stop construction and took over the job. He sold the property for a min of a 100% profit at $575K.That is the only house in VT  I have ever built. He does have good kids , it must skip a generation.
