Making A Home Beautiful Again

April 18, 2018

  Under contract but not closed.  Folks, I’m not one to complain, but sometimes we just have to blow off steam. The journey to buying a home that needs renovation to the day it gets sold is long and varied.  We all watch the HGTV and DIY shows on television and dream of taking a […]

We almost waited too late to order the dumpster.  The first lesson we learned is that it’s important to stay in close contact with your contractor to see exactly when he wants the dumpster there.  The demo crew arrived, and there was no dumpster.  Luckily, we are working with a wonderful refuse company that got […]
