We Decided to Get the Whole Thing Replaced

My wife and I had our small children to think of for many years instead of making our home look fancy. We live in what was a very basic home, and we were happy with that while we saved our money toward upgrading the house at a later time. But our kids are much older now, and we’ve saved some money to do upgrades. We were ready. I began looking into roof repair in Brooklyn NY recently, and after seeing some of the beautiful examples of the work one company did, we asked them to replace all the shingles on our roof. But we ended up changing our mind later.

We had typical roof shingles on our home. We were always happy with that. But after I went through all of the roofing contractor’s before and after photos, I realized that getting a tin roof put on would add sales value to our home. Continue reading We Decided to Get the Whole Thing Replaced

Art Lives in All of Us

For an art exhibit, an artist wanted me to make a sculpture for him. I thought this was an odd request, because I had never done anything like that, nor was I an artist. The artist thought it would be a good chance to prove that anyone could be an artist, regardless of their artistic background. I agreed to do it, but I had no idea what to make.

New Job and New Place to Live in Sandy Springs

My wife got a job at a corporate office in the city of Sandy Springs. We needed to move to cut the commute time. This was a great opportunity for the both of us. It was double the pay she was making at her last job. I work for one of the online giants and have been working from home for several years now. I can work anywhere there is Internet access. We started looking for apartments for Sandy Springs suburbs. We did not want to live right in the city, but we did want to be close. No one likes an hour drive to and from work every day.

We are not city people. We like neighborhoods with trees and lawns. We were thinking about renting a house, but we decided an apartment would be best. Neither one of us had the time for doing mowing and landscaping. Plus, the apartments for Sandy Springs have the same amount of floor space of any house we would have been renting anyway.
