ADA, Mich. -- Michelle Burton, the owner of A Fine Touch Day Spa, said the contractor she hired for renovations failed to follow the blueprint.

As a result, she said she's having trouble conducting business properly. Burton paid half of the $12,000 bill upfront to Multiserve. She said the contractor agreed to fix its mistakes but changed its tune and is demanding payment.

According to emails exchanged between Burton and Multiserve in February, the contractor offered to lessen the amount they said she owed. Burton refused and told FOX 17 it will cost her more to have someone else correct the work. Multiserve put a construction lien on the property. However, the building doesn't belong to Burton. She's renting. The company's attorney, Wade McConnell, said there is pending litigation and declined to comment. He only added that the company is looking forward to its day in court.

Burton said she wants the mistakes fixed by Multiserve and/or the lien dropped.
