Poor Project Management

I have moved into my new place for about 2.5 months now. When I first took possession in March, some of the exterior items were incomplete. It is somewhat understandable since 1. it was winter time, and 2. it's mostly cosmetic, so whatever (typical structural engineer thinking). Spring has finally arrived, and Edmonton's mountain high of snow has melted. I think it's about time to get the exterior finishes completed. Of course, the finishes are scheduled to be completed sometime, however, I think the order is a little messed up.

Along my alley, my building was the first to be occupied. The building across mine was occupied next. The building next to mine is still empty and appeared only to be partially sold. The trim around our overhead garage doors were only wood when the buildings were first occupied. Now EVERY building but mine have vinyl siding around the garage doors. Shouldn't our building have priority since we moved in first? Guess not!!!
The building next to mine (the partially sold one) have siding and numbers on the garage doors. On Friday when I came home from work, I found numbers screwed into the wood trims around my garage door. Can I say RETARDED?! The siding is not even on yet. Once they do put the siding on, they have to take the numbers off. Sigh. Talk about poor management.
