what stops me is it costs too much

I love that you think that these decisions are yours to take! Also, since there is no real reason (beside your view of financials) of not doing refactoring (or doing it right - assuming you don't think spaghetti code is good code) like hardware constraints, did you tell your client that in order to make the code cleaner, more maintainable would cost like $500 more? Maybe he will see this as an investment!

Phase 1 was reusable. Guess what? The spec changed


honey the codewitch wrote:
Phase 2 is this phase. Delivered at 1/2 the price, more functional

Who can tell you that Phase 2 won't have the same fate as Phase 1?
