Hired a contractor to install block wall. Contractor digs pours footings. Contractor then buys wall block without block approval begins setting wall.

After 24 hrs I disassemble wall, let know we'll eat cost of glued blocks, please return unused blocks, purchase a specific block to cont. Contractor says I've breached contract, refuses continue or refund any of the 9K deposit. On jobsite 5 days. Did I breach contract? Can contractor walk away with 9K legally?
