Your your father's dreary prodding me a week ago we talked about tell you girls are hole prep show me. But you know new burly guys in our girls basketball very Maya yeah right so now we get hundreds now we got to talk some actual Mary stuff that. That you guys you'll Crete thing with with the workforce development the foundation is part of this and I coming up. The skills USA is that thing that you guys really involved and. Yeah absolutely we've we just we just started this skills USA competitions those who would stills USA is to say it's a nationwide program that. It gets kids involved in my skilled trades and in different opportunities. You're mainstream arm. Jobs I am what skills USA. Yeah it really wasn't prevalent turn around here. And what what the foundation did last year is we actually hosted a skills USA competition we had two schools chairman Tom Hartford. I'm actually set up at Milwaukee no work that's where the site was we had the two schools compete on building I shed. And is since it was an eight hour day using their skills not only Tom. Building the structure but actually wiring it electrically while. It was is really cool to see these kids work together as a team and now and one of the two. I'm a bunch of nary a members' side Mary's certified members. Judge the competition. We selected a winner at the end of the day. And then the foundation actually helped pay for the winners trip to the national competition in Louisville so. Well that's awesome yes and so last year when you would the first you guys did this year at two schools you do it again this year. How many schools are involved so this year we have five schools involved could for you Yad hits gray who are. Our goal is to double and we actually got a fifth school to to answer at the and so. We've got our Barnum Velde Germantown in Berlin Kimberly. And then Blair Taylor so a couple these schools are actually common quite a ways while this competition. Are more hosting it again at whether tack this year. It's a little bigger space 'cause out as you've got I schools now same thing they're gonna come in on a Thursday. Are more action we actually do like reception meet the kids talked some about careers in the trades. They get their tools setup and our inning and then Friday date become an early 7 o'clock Marlins 7 o'clock start. And they'll be building a structure until two. He time I wanna if we can't spend a little time on listen why why why. Why this is so important in the area in in in your mind why he's so important to Neary that that. We give these kids that are high school a chance compete in some to likes those US. I think it's important because will you know week in and youth are your prime very familiar with this because this is probably a topic that's on your show every week if not every other week. In terms of the look at our members need. Employees you know where we are really. We're we're having a tough time with the skilled trades and we have to. And I think our start as the foundation and asthma watching Mary is to get into these high schools to get in their younger enhanced and to get past the stigma of a career in the trades is being a vocational consolation. Did you hear geno micro yes he did did you have you heard the peace that he did where he said look. What's happened on this is back in the day this was. The if you got in the Trajan you did well that's what everybody looked to. And the whole thing changed it and now out in the media and in certain areas. It's you know what if you're not good enough to get to college than me might might want think about this. And it's just completely take in this industry. And it's made it like second fiddle and it doesn't make sense to a guy like me. Now and add any you know and and these kids can come out of high school in turn agree waged not have a college long right and really you don't and he has some pride in what they're doing absolutely and if you like to work with your hands and you like to see an end result and see a smile on customers base which is honestly why. I'm in the trade Z is you know that's one of my fear of parts is at the end of a project to see what we've created and disuse satisfaction and customers that's. Intel info Lexus early in them or both were here's to you or three and I asked them. It is your dad ever drive run neighborhoods and say I did that and we did this night did this well they said. Yet it they would just do we do we'd yeah I didn't and now that we've been NF for ten years we've done in all a lot of different projects around the city. You know especially in all it's also where we could. You know stumble or blocks where we've done something or type something idea I was super Clara Mason and and I talk about the squad on the show by. And then he used to put it put me in the backseat of the car or in the front seat back then. And drive down time and say. You know some see that building and I did that. And I've this is the buildings see a top third that's for a met this week and last week we were and two years ago we built this. And he was so how did it was such a proud thing for him to say look my hands we'd do I did this. And I think that that's really poured night effect has stepped China namely that fear a few months ago and easyJet mice and Mike my kids get sick and tired of me. Say and that helped but you know what he said look I I want to know and all that they're from that that that the food that there. Eating in a good closing out their bat comes from a guy that this is what I do right and I'm prior what I do and I think by doing this thing with skills USA. You're getting these kids in that first step of being Prada what they do. Absolutely any you know I think that consumer needs sir realize too that. This is important for for everyone to get involved in so it's you know have kids start this early intended to be part of the process because you know as a consumer. Right now you're facing you know extended time lines for projects when were when were coming into year project it's gonna take us longer. As we have to have more trade partners involved if you don't have people on staff that can do work. You know your projects enemy more money because we we have to pay our guys top dollar. There are there are few and far between that are out there. Which citrus in and and and when you said you say you probably talk about this every weaker every other week it's almost every week. And we'll talk a lot of polyps. Companies that are looking a high are used to beat Tom a few years ago when we started to show that two guys and say hey look if you've been in the trade. And and you're thinking about maybe your displaced or you want to make a move talked to me. And then it was if you look if you just have a high school education and you and your willing to come to work. Talk to me now where it's hey look. If all of this is if you're willing to give up and get out of that be a labor in the beginning. But you want to learn to do this or you wanna learn to be a Carpenter or plumber electrician look we can get she's there. But you just have to be willing to get up worked five sometimes six days weeks and work cart. And in an ad that's that's your head in the nail right on the head and and I always tell people. We can train aptitude we can't train attitude unbelievable and a and that's that's really where it were comes from a starts from new in the work ethic in the it grown up in the McGovern hustle. Again with my father June what he did the worst word in the English language was lazy. He again seven years old and say don't let the neighbors think you're lazy I'm Sabbah. I really did you get that grass cut before 8 o'clock or they're gonna think you're lazy and I'd be like well. But it just the little kid and but that was his deal and as we got older he really put instill that. And you look at at any of these kids is not in in my family any of these these did a siblings. There's always one among they're all working 23 jobs are there they're working hard at what they do went. And the hours nobody ever complains about it in fan sports which really funny you'll get a kick out of this. Cured Entercom almost everybody gets on the truck to ponson. And I don't and they asked me why and and I remember working a Colts food store and my dad would say that to you that they're giving you that check. That means you accomplish something. And think that you learn that you weren't a threat but then think the company for allowed you to work there and don't ever let them say you're lazy and so. They do you know they're they were bugging me about doing that nice and let me tell you wire Walt. And this is why because. He made a perfectly clear that every time they give that to you that means you did something you earned it and then tell him thank you like that yeah I and so it's. So they're not so happy he's not the only was at their you know I looked a little older like me different on board and finally when I told them why they stay southeast of now we understand. I appreciate you say in that. He went when you guys on. During this during though the fall's show in the spring show Wie with Mary we do a a work. A job fair that we did we do and every spring show yeah and and it's been going the last couple of years. And this years from what I understand. People are starting to get it word they know they're commented to interview for some jobs rather than Roland not a bad. Coming in in your sweat pants and stuff like that you know tiger and it out. Dad this year was very encouraging as we actually had you know people are common narrow with a nice Reza main you know dressed well spoke well. On there is actually I think I believe that this year out of the three years that we've been doing I think is the third year now that we've done the career if they're you're third or fourth here. This was the bass a one in terms of of people getting hired. I know a couple guys at higher one or two guys from nectar of C that's awesome and if I remember the first year. That we had I do too we can't we literally there isn't one guy. That everyone wanted so there's 25 lessen their own you know editors and what he's thank you want poured two million dollars so right Curtis. So yeah it's it it's changed a lot but that's getting you know I think we did a lot of advertising and you know I honestly was anything you know as it gets legs it takes a bit yet it was just a little. At this goes USA thing from two schools to five and when you said the schools. You're talking about schools that are not just right here in the marquee area. But throughout the state straight grain on their name they hook up their trailer and they get down here they spent a night in a hotel and and it's how I am if if I had to open a favorite and that group by put one from way out state. Goes goes boys or were to win would a lot. It's just like in their sleep I. You led I Germantown did a really nice job last year and I'm excited that you Berle incentives here you know the foundation. Two weeks ago we went actually to number on west and donated 15100 dollars worth the tools to their program they're carbon shoe program is actually really on the rise you know they. The gentleman that runs that program said you know they might ahead 21 eats his injuries at last year I think he said. Enrollment for this year might be up to forty so me being. Doubled so so maybe what's what's happened and out there is good on the last thing over at Martin Luther were were a coach with coach Walsh on they've got a wood shop. And the stuff that comes on this would shop. Mr. Winn words is the teacher there and I've known him for a while his son played a you bask while with my son Matthew injured from south Lockheed. And he does a great job with the skit. And there is an Eason look easy as you said you're their best customer her and I'm biased I'll probably got a good hitter bought a couple of of of benches for this patio that we have. And Eason look. Will make these and then you know you'll have to you paying him assume do do that as have it's a great. And interests of what's the cause she's like well and so I gave them what I thought there are worth. And he goes. Your limit your behalf of this back in a signal. This is what I think. There were T said Mike. Your dirty hand a lot more and in all we do all this money goes directly back and allowing me to buy. So more would it's more stuff for for arts and chop MS is great.

Tickets are ten dollars an advance fifteen at the door. And essentially what you can do I don't know how many projects we have signed up now lead in in past years I think we've had up to twenty homes yet. Where essentially the the consumer can come out to these homes on that weekend. And take a look at the work that we do and I think it's a great opportunity for anybody that's looking to. Hire a contractor do a project possibly a project that's in your neighborhood because obviously a lot of these homes are scattered within them watch the area so he did. They'll put a map up on the nary web site in and what I always like to do about three weeks Pryor's try to map out how how can you get tall. And and do you take the north side. And try to get those in and then the next day had west and then into toe sent. So once the map comes out and there's gonna be I think 1819 something like that up projects on there may twentieth and 21. Again ten dollars an advance I would recommend that and Ali you can do this concept for ten bucks to fifteen at the dork. And you can go to as many of these projects as you want. AM like I said it's great because your often means either the owners of these companies or their staff. And you're able to talk to them you know one on one conversation it's not like. You know at the fall show or the spring show where it gets me a little busy you are happy able to Ted to have a good ten or fifteen minute conversation. These are a little bit more you know controlled not as many people. And and you're able to look at the work up close and I think that often debt often kits. Loss when you're looking at remodeling projects are you looking to hire a model or is how many of these from collars are willing to actually take you to a prize to show you the work. Basically pull the curtain back yeah I say here it is judo on the at times there home one or will stay most of the time they kind of go away for a few RG gives money go see a movie or whatever. Sometimes a homeowner will state and then you get to ask them questions too about the process. About what it was like working with these guys how long were they in the how you know that kind of stuff. How would what I remember most in this is a number years ago Terry night humbled went through. And the the homeowner stayed in there is a really cool. Liked he able in the kitchen and she said. The bid to company working with it was start in the basement and he noticed that we had this it was an old storm dork. So what do you do with that Mason herbs can pry throw to waste not a member of the table you talked about it and it was incredible and she said look we never thought a ball that. And this guy by just going to basement to get some water for something and said what do you do with that door it was like. It was just like in a heap and he said no no no that's a door we can use and here it is right here. NFL while that's pretty regularly out yeah you know and like you said these customers can have kind of in a sidebar conversations with with people and and and the homeowners lose you know last surprised that we on the homeowners actually stuck around so yeah ended his colon when they're able to has talked to them you know on the corner Barca hit a lot of things go push it made some cookies yeah or just don't like really good and if if you had a cat see this stuff I remember. Isn't that half hate Al let's see if we Kim we've only got through for ms. In this segment and I promise it won't get into the segments about. Taking space in your house that might not be used now and them armed changing into some Spacek Camby used. But let's talk a little bit about story you'll renovations we normally start with this kind of stuff but we we didn't. Going on your web said west so it's good by the way thanks and change. We week keep change and it gets we once a year we always kind of tweak it go through with our with -- the personal -- that it was truly good thank you yeah yeah we feel we've got a new photographer now too and I think there's been just the picture quality is improved so sharp and if you go to the website story he'll renovations one word story he'll renovations dot com. Or you give them a call again a 414. 84116. And 94 we catch in enough talking about. Of the history history he'll renovations. In how you guys started this company what we haven't done. On a lot of us talked about the process and I just want to quickly goal there's initial conversation. Where you guys usually it's done by phone. There's a phone called Hewitt saying he look at would you she's I wanna read your master bath. And they will use that as as our example. After that initial phone call. You guys go watch somebody goes out it in home consolation were you going to talk to them about exactly what they're looking for yet. I'd like you said did that first phone call when they reach out to us is essentially you know we kind of assassin fewer questions you know where the projects located what's your vision in the spaces which is like to do. We also kind of talk budget to so there were in the same ballpark in terms of what you look consist suspend for the project. On you know if everything checks out and it's something that did you want us you know we always ask you which alike just come on take a look at it. If souls of those questions pan out then we come on take a look and it's if you know free hour of our time are we just come out there we do we actually get a physical look at the space. We take some measurements a lot of pictures. And basically off of this visit were able to use then go back to the the drawing board so to speak at our office our designer will come up with with a plan. And then we had to come into the office for an hour and just kind of walk you through an estimate on what the project. Would entail what the design would look like etc. and then from there we kinda. That's kind of where we put put the line down where you know if this looks good in within your budget. We heavy assignment to sign an agreement and we take it to the next step Morey actually get down to the nitty gritty of finalizing the design. The selections and and continue tooth contract. Perfect and then once you once you start. And look there's in every project I would assume. There is something that that doesn't go exactly as planned whether it's a timing thing or it's all of a sudden the consumer they're the client. Says you know what I thought this is what I want it. But I really want best and and you guys understand that obviously yeah. No I you know there's there's flexibility in what we do and you know whether it be you know upgrading and and and possibly a change order or. Just working with that Kline in terms of their budget in off all the sudden something comes back and might be. In old to hire this is and what they'd they'd like to you know wall work was done to get get to where they want to be. In your in in the looking at at the website and and looking at your bio what jumped out at me. Tom and as we talk about the process. In it makes sense because you talk what story you'll focuses on building exceptional relationships. With their great clients staff and trade partners and it's not just a buyout. Did that this space your chest about you know putting this and a new master bath and it's it's more than that for you yet. It really is communicate comes today you know process more it's more than that with our clients like you said we've we've established a lot of relationships with clients that we've done work for an hour were. You know we're still in contact with and the not a lot of people that we're doing these tour hall says like we're doing another tour. We're doing another project on the tour this year where's it going to be even this one will be a wallet toss it's actually right next door to the project we did last year that's honest and that's how we get the job was that are higher. You know we did a kitchen and then right next door. Back customer and called us and said hey we're gonna duel hall halls remodel. We know Ian your neighbor's done his homework and he's really happy so you guys are gonna come on over and. Goodness for Ian yeah and what we'd like he and I told him he's he's my knees my second top salesman he's he's self way to close yeah yeah there is that I would have first commissions hit hard nosed. He's done claw any of the year is commissioner's house it's. It's for physically well time at the US dollar twelve step program but other than that he's too and he's doing great all he's he's he's a very tacky that's awesome how well could you know what this is good if you want more information. On Tom main goal or story he'll renovations. And the work they do. I would recommend going as swept sector some great pictures in some of the stuff that really talk about I'm the next two segments. I is what kind of brought to attention for me that we should be talking about it and it's from that website this story go renovations dot com. That story hill renovations dot com one word. But so I get to break of a separate Thom -- Ville will continue as we talk about taking space that you have in your house now and either change of that expand in that. There there's a number things you can do with. Especially the kids leave than than that span yeah also you also any you know a lot of room here to deal with a strong in a big screen TV and some couches for that never seems to get me anywhere and then you're headed to the basement you had hoped that this is the more Q -- home improvement show. I'd sports Radio One 057 FM the fan. You're listening to an airy home improvement show with big time Mike may giver and only on sports Radio One 057 FM the fan. Your question to lie and made 1057 FM the fan dot com. Welcome back to the more canary home improvement show on scored 31057. FM the fan. I'm Mike Weaver once said this we East Coast and special guest from story hill renovations. He is Tom Maine bill gives story go renovations dot com. He Tom went when people on stirred think it about. Yeah. He's very. Is there a norm for it for you is there you know they they have the space and they always withdrawals looking to do this or is every everything different. I honestly every every situation is different you know you could have you could have a couple where their kids are moving out last kids on college now we've that's a match is based. You could have a situation where hey. We bought this two bedroom house and now we're having three kids were kids what are we treeless he had exactly now what are we gonna do so. You know each situation dictates kind of where the remodeling proud project's gonna go. Ways one of the things Jews who research for this that I didn't really think about when we're gonna talk about this but converting their garage tour room. Is is something that seems to be fairly popular at this point. It is who we. You know Odyssey that ten years that we need to do we actually just did a garage out in nine in Dallas men that we we Tenet teamed up with with a trial all company called national gypsum and sat it was actually. A contest winner where they wanted to make their garage until like this really cool. Space where's the guy could work on his tires his kid was into like rock climbing so they actually build we built a rock climbing wall in the garage. I mean it was pretty crazy you know and in three months accused in here rock club ready millionaire to do ask Reynolds gruesome but they had a big enough grass to do this and we just for what I actually could screen doors that went down where the grass doors open we put screen doors they're seek it actually roll screen or counseling had to entry ways where the bitter could full 10. It was really cool and then and I think maybe five years ago we did. How we were on our program called me and marquis. Where they did and and artists did like a garage based on my knee out in the NB view where we see action putter art studio in the garage. You wanted the quotes that in this article that I read the swore it. It's said to many converted garage or rice's look like while garage at that people just moved some furniture into. And it. I think there's a way to transform. That into something that doesn't look like so much a garage that she just moves from furniture and it's it's not a cheap date. I mean there are some dollars at that you're looking to spend a net but he almost gives you a whole another. You know a lot of space it's depending on the size of the garage yeah. Absolutely and and it's just say it's a different field you know it's not. Necessarily. Part of our policy and only the one that we did for the art studio that was totally detached it was you know on the back Terry was an all house and be views so. That was kind of a really unique project this this other one was actually attached also sometimes you you know you're locked in right our interest your your back to Warner in the garage so it can feel a little bit like. Now it's really good friend of mine. He took his rise and he lives at Donna on the east side of walking and he made is rushing to an Irish pub. With his office upstairs. Andy he knew he had it from my understanding it was there I was invited but we have make it to an I see catchers Tea Party. A yesterday in his outdoor space out earlier is who's going to be a beautiful fireplace out torched. And then indoors is this really nice Irish pub. And I remember what the garage look like. But it's hard now -- remember it because it was just stuff. And he got rid of all of that and he really took the time did a lot of it on his own and it looks Phnom. Now and it and that's the hardest thing I think is is you don't we all use our garages for for essentially storage space. So also and when you're gonna try to remodel it space her make it you know a new rule and now you got to purge a lot of stuff. You know well. And they have you seen the show quarterly interest in Philadelphia kept path. Well there is young men and I coached and he's gonna help me this spring because my garage I had a clear our drug. I'm not but it looks like idea if that's the bad part just the garage area you've had a mile out and out yeah get my wife's charged in the house I would charge in the garage it's been a nightmare here really is really use it to park her car and as I've got stuff than there. So this does spring really you're rid of it but I I couldn't take a garage. Like that and make it in the living space I don't think it would make any sense but in some of these houses especially the attached garage. Wood went. Instead you'll lies in the basement for me and keep kids now it's a family cave you know they're doing those. Maybe utilize the garage injury correctly like my friend did talk that's his area. Now a lot of those nor house is like you said you're able to expand out and actually up in Aussie you're able to do something really cool above the garage so. That's a lot of people aren't on there and we had some idea on the show on this is a couple years ago and the garage they they took the crotch and made it into an office space. And then they they went up. And he's got these collectible cars that they have an elevator. That goes up and they can. To liver the cars very whole entire thing about it and so when he's having his meetings downstairs. You can look up and see these art app. Yeah I might add are mechanic actually has some those same things got a loft upstairs. For his kids just a parent goal up there and do you know pool table up there and they just it's it's kind of more for their kids to hang out after school. And then he's got the three Carter has a lorries actually at a actual car lift and it might soon and as well I mean it's it's just a fantastic barrage.

I said boy I love your basement she said yeah because you like to shoot pool good play ping pong we don't do when he of their brain straight at a hole areas wasted for us. And we want to utilize it when we have people over would early utilizing basement. Because the people that we know what don't you pull or don't play ping pong as well they're not fun. Well it and I think that's what do you know when you to a basement the basement doesn't you know even though obviously it's part of the home did the basement can take now hold characteristic or personnel you can take on your personality. So you don't have to make it look like the rests a house. You can do whatever you want down there you know we seat we see people doing anything from.

They'll do workout area yeah I work out areas exactly just out home brewer he's we've actually seen in basements to selling now is a lot of drink and stuff and wide and a wine cellar holes were but I mean you know just things like story in those are things that that you would do after your kids there or Don used and utilized in the basement has and about a quarter uncle played aryan and how it's you know word is Alexis in the lane and -- they go they hired you has so they have a they have a plan as they have a playroom and in on the side.

West fear in won't Sosa. Story you'll renovations dot com for more information. I wanted to and we were neck and have enough time to talk about to rumors and I apologize for that. Because I have a bunch of questions and next NB comment if I can't. I wanna talk more about it. You guys on your website they have. A picture rude to warmer and there's different ways to do the east. As you talked about in the neighbor that you grew up in neighbor and I live then. It's more architectural. It's more they have what's called like a dog. Are geared former united socially that too small to farmers on the front of the house annihilate as a bills were real popular in went up in like mass production. After World War II when a lot of the veterans were coming back from. From the war and yes a little bit of space but now it's more so it's more for the welcome you what do you know put in there your prime cruel and seed in there and it's just adds light to the room. I mean essentially that's what kids got in trouble that's where we've. It's their title but I don't know I'm just yet and he's ones that you normally who's called the shed dorm. Andy can you explain that little bit and and what that would not only what that adds to the house. But architecturally what you have to do to get that aren't sure Sosa this send armor sense. Leland who would we did one of those tomorrow Tulsa last year what it does it takes it takes your roof line. And then you can take the roof line up typically will do it on one inside a house or maybe on the back of a house. Depending on I knew where we're at in terms of zoning in codes and stuff with in the municipality but. Armed no one that we did in wallet torso we actually took one side of the house and brought the whole Roth lineup. And essentially what that does is it takes an attic space in now it gives you lead foot ceilings it gives you had the ability to insulate. And just just create so we went from bad that particular house which was a bundle south house. Went from odds are so small you know bedroom upstairs that I don't even think was used. Where we took the whole side of the house from the refine took it up so that they had eight foot ceilings and we actually created a master bedroom and a master bath. And then we also created to kids' bedrooms with a shared bath as well so why able day add three bedrooms. And two bass. In this space upstairs so this is for is somebody like Hewitt talked about it earlier in the show somebody that said look we love our neighborhood. Off our house is a little small because we're now having art. Third child and we want to have four. But we don't want to move we love the school system we love the neighborhood above the neighbors. And this is way for them to stay in their house. Yeah and you know and there's a lot of investigation it goes in that too because I've received got to take a look at home values and what you know obviously but the project's gonna cost and where your home belies going to be after you don't want to. You want to overdo it unless like it like I said he you know if you're in their for the long haul and that might not be consideration but. You still have to look at the home values and what what the potential is to sell that that property around the half. Himself if not if somebody calls uses look don't want him I wanna put on an addition. They may not have thought about this. And so when you when you talk to them and you go and see their house if they might ninth if it's really tight to to aid to go out instead of up. And that the house is something that that that is shed to armour would would would work perfect for what they're looking for does that then get into the conversation. Yeah I mean you present all options and you really have to look at the style home when you call to the property you know and then you know you just have to use any year your gut instinct and and you have to go look at the budget to in right. When you when your when you're digging foundations in basements and you know. If if you have the ability to do a shed armor that might be the better way to help. On the financial yes absolutely and it also gives is that I think they'd they don't look on these is is great men makes it look could. And and to be able to do is much space is your talked about with a master. Bedroom and a bath and then to kids' bedrooms and another bat. That's and now I'm speaking as an added a tremendous amount of space that I was amazed after we got finished with a project how long did did a prizes like at top takes so that one took us four months four months of. ML because you know and essentially what you're doing to them when you're doing that is is your put a new rough time because at the end of the day if you're gonna take up half the rough demise all just review time for a redo it. You know you can think other things we we actually did some osprey foam insulation that particular project and just. You know just made sure that the house was was done correctly and we also had a you know match that old sighting that was on there are parts of the house how it was that. It depends on on what's up there red typically we can find something nets either an exact match or close to it and make it work you'll wouldn't is that we've they have eight chairman and if they at a fireplace or coasts through their you have to then moved out. Well it really depends on the furnace to you know if the furnaces -- where it's still wherever it's still exhausted the chimney and obviously you're keeping a chimney but a lot of times too. At that point. You know if you're put in new growth on and also and you have a high efficiency furnace and now vents to decide your home when you don't really have a use for their chimney anymore. Right here able to teach you know you're gonna do a new roof anyways so let's just take the chimney down. You know patch the roof and then your your furnace RD exhaust all the side at a house seat and no worries there. Boy that's. That's really tres in what a great option for people that wanna see in their house. They're gonna read do you work they've looked for for more space instead of going out they can go up. And still keep the backyard in the and the theory that they have their. Clear and and utilized and every one rating of one you know a lot of those Slava how's is in in Tulsa wait there's been a bungalows and that's that's what she'd like to do because the city yards hustle small very small.
