Cal Spoon was hired by the xxxxxx family in Odessa Texas in October of 2007 to build a new 2 story home. Instead he built a metal shell with no footing under the building. To give you an idea on how bad it is, the average footing for this type of structure, according to a structural engineer that checked the damage, suggested 2 feet at the main beams and 16 inches else ware. My Spoon gave us 4 inches at one end and 8 at the other. Why the varying in thickness? Well he also did not level the ground out. We ended up spending about $60,000 extra to repair everything. What all was wrong? First the framing was removed because they gave my 2 children both 8x8 ft jail cell rooms. My entry way was to small to fit a stair case unless it covered the main window in the living room. The welding was almost non-existent, especially where we had to get a ladder to check. The windows were the wrong ones and we told Mr. Spoon this many times and later we found that they were also against code. We found electrical ran through jagged metal that was attached to flimsy framing.
I am one of 5 people that I know Sonny Cal Spoon(SCS Builders) has screwed over in the Permian Basin. I met a woman that on her project they were reusing material from a very old building to cut expenses. I met another woman that was getting a $10,000 custom cabnit job, Cal instead bought Home Depot cabenits and stained them and left before the woman could return.
Sonny Cal Spoon is a criminal and I would not do business with him or anyone linked to SCS builders. He took over $60,000 from me and will not pay me back. I am suing him and even with all the evidence, he tells my lawyer that we do not know what we are talking about and that its not that bad. I have hundreds of pictures and a video that I will be posting on websites in the future, the same pictures and video sent to SCS. From were I stand, Cal seems to think that he is untouchable or even "god-like". People like this are the worst and because of him my 3 year old and 6 month old baby do not have a home. We have been working with a good contractor for a few months to get it fixed but we did not really have the money to do the whole job all at once. Right now 2 adults and 2 children live in one room and share a bath with 2 other adults... thanks CAL! Cal told us the house would be done on Jan 1st so we put in our 2 months notice for our apartment. If he wouldnt of lied I would of at least not been homeless. Despite what we found, he also didnt work on our job for over a month after he got the majority of the money.
