This sounds like you're dealing with a bad case of Not Invented Here syndrome combined with a heavy emotional investment in the current systems. On one hand you're faced with the fact that company's aren't interested in rewriting code if what they've got currently works. On the other hand, you have a situation where the current codebase is becoming increasingly unweildy.

I'm not going to give you advice. Ultimately, this is your problem and you have to decide what you need to do. I suspect that you already know what you want to do, and what you are looking for is external validation of your opinion. Bottom line - it's up to you how you deal with this; whether you talk to the owner to try to understand his hostility or you walk - this is your decision and your decision alone.

Deja View - the feeling that you've seen this post before.
