Our lives were forever changed that day. ...

I don't usually watch CNN. Was flipping back and forth between CNN and Fox last night. CNN definitely has an agenda. I wasn't familiar with Don Lemon, so I looked him up. Learned he is from Baton Rouge and LSU. Everyone else probably already knew that. At least he seemed to have the most sense of th...

Just to close the circle on this. All went well. Got the assessment report. Mentioned the upgrade and determined due to the nature of the work a permit wasn't necessary after talking with the contractor who explained the scope of the work.
Assessed value came in above where we needed, but a littl...

[quote]Also, avoid the smaller companies like Fox Rental and Advanced. They get horrible reviews. [/quote]
Meh- I've used Fox in San Diego and found it to be as good or better than the big boys. The clerks were courteous, didn't try to upsell, and the cars were clean and seemed well-maintained. I...

So here's the deal- we are in EBR. Have a house we have lived in for several years. House has a screened porch in back. We decide to create a sunroom in the space. Hire a contractor and the work gets done.
We are now looking to refinance. The appraiser comes out and starts asking about the permit...

Possible it's a neighbor. We had a similar situation a few years back with our driveway gate (also connected to Homelink). Drove us crazy trying to figure it out.
