BAKERSFIELD -- Dozens of protestors picketed in front of a southwest Bakersfield home on display at the Chez Noel Christmas Home Tour Friday morning, claiming nearly $700,000 in unpaid construction costs.

The tour opened its doors Friday, giving local residents a chance to see three spectacular homes all dressed up for the holidays. One of the three homes, however, has become a battleground between the home owners and home builders.

A 23ABC investigation found more than a dozen subcontractors who said they've been trying to get paid for several months on a stocking full of extras and upgrades they provided during construction; an unpaid bill they say is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The 7,500 square foot, Georgian-style, two-story home sits on the edge of a gated neighborhood in Seven Oaks. The interior is decorated like a circa 1800's English manor, with lots of extras. But it's those extras that reportedly caused the price of the custom home to skyrocket.

Ron Pruitt said the owners, Greg and Gina Hartman, wanted 40 different oil-based colors, imported from London, to use on the interior. He said he explained the process would triple the original estimate.

Most of the contractors we spoke to said the requests the owner made were satisfied but never paid for.

Once it was complete, contractors said the owners paid for the original bid, but didn't pay for any extras to the tune of $700,000.

They should have put a lien on the charitable Holiday Home tour.

Today's report on Boston has been released on both my blog and our new website. History has shown us that Boston is a great indicator of what will happen here in California.

if contract was fullfilled but the extras were not in it the contractors are skrewd...

Also i do not think pain from london is any more expensive then from new york shipping maybe perhaps 2 or 3 times more expensive but an extra 700k is a bit excessive...

Oh yeah, that would give me real peace of mind... that the builder took care to make sure everything was assembled to exacting standards, when the subs are standing outside demanding payment...

Cut corners? Huh?? You mean, they might do that???

Just burn the house down. Problem solved. "owner" deprived of enjoyment of the property.
