Empty Nester, Southern transplant to Las Vegas, with my children and grandchild still in SC. I recently retired (on July 4...Independence Day!), but previously owned my own Construction Management company and spent the past 11 years working as a Project Manager for General Contractors as well as performing site evaluation and due diligence work for banks on their foreclosed commercial and residential development properties. I am now enjoying buying and reselling on Ebay, which has surprisingly almost replaced my income and working on furniture re-do projects, which I sell locally on Craig's List.
We are remodeling our entire house (a slow 7 year project, so far), changing it from a bad 1980's typical Vegas Tuscan into a cool, contemporary, slightly mid-century home that we love. I love the decorating side of home improvement. Everything has to be a bargain, and we spend countless hours searching for high-end, low-price materials. I love repurposing projects and paint a little, and spend spare time doing that on top of my ebay business.
