Worcester contractor turns couple’s dream into nightmare

It’s the middle of November, and Jesse Messier and Dawn Derusha were supposed to move into their new home back in October.

In 2014.

For the past year and a half, the young couple and their Siberian Husky, Denali, have been living with Messier’s parents while waiting for Worcester-based contracting company Mutual Builders to finish their home in Charlton — a home that originally had a scheduled move-in date of Oct. 10, 2014.

There are several steps left before Mutual Builders is finished with Jesse Messier's new home ... more than a year after it was supposed to be finished.

There are several steps left before Mutual Builders is finished with Jesse Messier’s new home … more than a year after it was supposed to be completed.

While the dream of home ownership is often fraught with wakeup calls, the fact is Messier and Derusha have waited more than a year to move into their new home. And the process of building their house has been nothing short of a nightmare, they said.

According to Messier’s first purchase-and-sale agreement from June 2014, Mutual Builders said the work would be completed in four to six months.
