Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Was there a schedule or time for completion stated in the contract?

Thank you for the additional information.

If they breached the contract then you can demand your money be returned. If they refuse you can sue them in small claims court for the return of the money and any other damages you incurred by the breach.

Small claims court is designed to be "user friendly" so that you can present a claim without an attorney. Also, it moves much more quickly than regular court. You can get the necessary forms to start from the clerk of the court.
