Eleven House: Out of the Dust! Old House Deconstruction

When you start to work on an old house, interesting things begin to happen. From the moment we repaired the locked front door and began using it as our entrance instead of the steep back stairway to the second floor, we could feel a change. It was as if Eleven House picked its head up and took a deep breath, and started living again. This past week, the local waste management company brought in a huge dumpster. I thought it might be a bit too big for our demolition. I now realize…

Eleven House: Old House Attic Finds

You never know what you might find in a 125-year-old attic! We are continuing slow and steady work on the Eleven House. Bill Spaid and I decided that it was silly to work ourselves to the point of soreness and exhaustion; we’re too wise for that! So we’re going with the flow of the day and setting our sights for a few hours of work each day, in between our regular jobs and other responsibilities. It felt good to actually get some plaster off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keMJRxjbefo We took some time to get…

Cash Crone: The Year of the Fixer-Upper.

We named the fixer-upper house! The Eleven House. I realized that each time I spoke of the house I called it Eleven (its house number). After a week of trying out new names I kept going back to it. In numerology, the number 11 represents the spiritual messenger, and is a master number. It is also considered a symbol of rebellion. Well, taking on this fixer-upper project could be considered a rebellion! Eleven House Now that spring is peeking in a little, we can spend a few hours at the fixer-upper house…

Cash Crone: 2016 – The Year of the Fixer Upper

This blog has experienced a month of silence, but for good reason. In my last post, I mentioned how I diverted from my budget to whittle away at my credit card debt. And I also suggested that Cronies should be willing to make changes along their debt reduction journey. I stated that I was setting aside my goal of finding another home until I had completely obliterated the debt and had a substantial savings built. Then, I said to the Universe that I would let things happen the way they…

10 steps to reducing credit card debt in 2016

Wow. The year 2015 may have been the year of the sheep – gentle and calm – but it was a fast one! But the last part of the year was definitely more focused, and I laid in a course for a better money blueprint. I worked to reduce my credit card debt and bring in more money to save for investments. This past week, I paid off credit card number 2! Yeehaw! An insurance check from an accident arrived, and it was deposited in the bank. But after careful…
