Here’s just a sampling of some of the things I ran across this week while researching a variety of work-related topics:
- Like this column from a Columbus Dispatch reporter whose theories on home remodeling made me laugh.
- Then there were these 10 quick tips if you’re looking to spruce up your digs to increase its resale value. (Yeah. Right. In this economy.)
- And how about this very interesting headache created by a remodeler’s attempt to put a hole in the wall?
- I couldn’t help but smile when I saw this article about how to cope during the current economic crisis. Some of this stuff could have been taken straight out of one my own blog entries! *grins*
- But probably the most interesting item I fell over was Measure 63, a ballot initiative in Oregon that would allow homeowners to do home improvement projects worth less than $35,000 without getting any building, electrical or plumbing permits.
I see both good and bad in Measure 63. And, having seen several other housebloggers who have had their own issues with permits, I’m betting that a lot of you have opinions about it, too. What do you think?
