Part of the deck project. Everything single thing is out of the home except one shelf in the basement with floor and bath tiles, spare lvt flooring, roofing shingles, and water softener supplies. And the cleaning stuff in the garage.Everything out. Then leave it to the professionals.
Why is there lumber on the floor? Part of the deck project or another random leave-behind?
Kane county. Just minutes from the possibly shuttered Sears Corporate headquarters. And the I believe shuttered Allstate alternate corporate office.
I am staying at the Marriott Hoffman Estates right now (about to leave and head to the home and get back to work). Right on the interstate, great location for a Marriott and north american HQ of global corporations, just minutes from a large international airport...... except this is Illinois. I am on the seventh floor of the Marriott. I look out the hotel window and see all these newer built office/ technology research buildings. Seems about half are vacant. Some of the landlords have even quit maintaining the lawns/ landscape.
Just like Catipillar announced two days ago, so many Companys, did, have, or are giving up on Illinois. Makes it hard to sell a home.......
Three weeks ago, Illinois lost the corporate HQ of Boeing (Virginia)I spent my first 31yrs about 15 minutes east of there. I don't miss the area one bit...
Thanks, digging the hole and loading up the rocks from Home Depot and unloading was a bit of a job, but I enjoyed the challenge. I am not a young man, and it is five days since digging the hole and loading the trailer, and my body still has yet to fully recover.Hopefully your hard work pays off. My back feels sore just looking at all your pictures
Here is an interesting article on Citadel and leaving Illinois. One of the more interesting tidbits in the article is the carjacking attempt of the Chairman's vehicle in Illinois. Glad he had a security detail. Not so good is the assaults on Citadel employees heading to/ from work:No comment on Citadel.
Three weeks ago, Illinois lost the corporate HQ of Boeing (Virginia)
Two weeks ago, Illinois lost the corporate HQ of Caterpillar (Texas)
This week, Illinois lost the corporate HQ of Citadel (Florida)
Along with each of these corporate HQ losses are hundreds of small companies that support these giant organizations, will be the loss of hundreds of small companies and tens of thousands of jobs (direct and indirect), that will move with these corporate giants.
Man, I hope an offer comes in on the home we have for sale in Illinois.

"If people aren’t safe here, they’re not going to live here," he told the Wall Street Journal in April. "I’ve had multiple colleagues mugged at gunpoint. I’ve had a colleague stabbed on the way to work. Countless issues of burglary. I mean, that’s a really difficult backdrop with which to draw talent to your city from."
