Construction Zone Ahead......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

So after a nice time away on holiday, I have seven men at my home today. The outhouse rebuild I had contracted before I left has hardly begun because of the snow while I was away and is of course more extensive and therefore costly than anticipated. My Plumbing problems returned and the excavation below my porch is happening now too. Good thing the contractor was here to remove the lattice go that the other guys could get in and dig. We're waiting for the stone guys now. So without anymore specifics ( because what I have said already is more than enough) I am counting in thousands again. 

Life is a roller coaster and I am glad I got off long enough to go to Kenya and appreciate despite all this stuff, how lucky I really am. But for the grace of   G-d, I could live here:

The pictured housing you snapped in Kenya, provides reason to be grateful for nice flooring and indoor plumbing.

Good luck on the repair work and renovations.  I know that stuffcan get pricey in a hurry.  Hope it's done fast and under budget.

Shiela, being in Kenya and seeing how some folks live would make anyone in America grateful for what they have.  Hope the renovations are soon completed.

Good morning Sheila. The only good thing (if you would call it that) is due to your planning years ago you have the funds to get the job done.  Most do not plan for contingency's  like what your experiencing.

Hi Sheila- it's a matter of perspective isn't it.  I will keep my fingers crossed that this project will be completed soon and without much more difficulty.
