After retirement, Veronica immediately began caring for her grandchildren. "I retired in 2011 with four grandkids," she says with a laugh. "There have been five more since then, and I’m still waiting to take a vacation!"
Wear on her three-bedroom, single-story home added up over time. Her house needed safe, functional steps to the entrance, ventilation, moisture mitigation, and a host of other external and interior repairs.
Busy with kids' summer schedules, Veronica remains wishful for a vacation someday. But she adds, "this--right here--is the next best thing."
