Happy New Year a month late! Sorry about the lack of communication, but the end of 2015 was swamped and I needed some time to regroup.
You may be wondering what’s cooking in the Reclaimed Home pot. Well, there’s the plan and then there’s the reality. The plan was to take a couple of weeks off to relax and then get cracking on freshening up the investment property in Rockaway. I took about a week off, then started on some custom jobs for other folks. So Rockaway, not quite happening yet, although I’m using it as my work space.
Do I miss the shop? Just the people, not the daily routine of being there. I’m enjoying the freedom even though I’m busy. At least I have the flexibility to make my own hours again. Still doing the same work for clients on furniture, so that’s the same. But there’s also renovations which make me feel so macho. Lovin it!
Rockaway house goes on the market this Spring. Hopefully it will sell and then the plan is to purchase another property for rehab. It may be a flip or I may want to sit around and eat bonbons while being a slumlord for a few years.
Whatever the case, I’ll do my best to keep some informative posts going. Social media has killed the blog, at least for me anyway. Hell, I’d rather take a picture or write a couple of words than make any real effort. Oh, gotta go…my bonbon delivery is here! Laters.
