Default Builder problems

Hi everyone, we are new to the site and to the algarve, 9 months.
We came saw a house fell in love with the people and the area now we have a house that needed some attention. So we enlisted a builder from Albufeira to do the work, he looked around taking notes and measurements, then later sent an e-mail with a quote that we agreed on. He said the work would take 2 weeks. We were having a ground floor flat opened up. 4 weeks on and he's not finished, and hes also not coming anymore. This week eg, he sent 1 guy to fit some cables on monday, after 3 hours he left. Today(friday) he sent an e-mail to say he needs more money to do jobs that originally during his viewing, was supposed to be included. He has also changed the way doors open and for this he wants extra money. We have paid half of the original quote, so we are lost as to what we can do about these extra cists, and how we can get the work done. We have no water or electricity in the flat, before we mail him back we are looking for some sound advice. Thanks in advance.
