ChristyB in TN Posted June 26, 2012 Share Posted June 26, 2012 We have purchased a home and are in the middle of the zoning process to turn it into our new office. We have gutted and finished it out on the inside and out. Someone broke in, backed up a trailer and loaded up approximately $4000 worth of carpet, tools and equipment, the new stove top, the refrigerator, shelving, light fixtures and faucets, the dang LIGHT BULBS, some serving dishes I had in the kitchen, and much more. We lose air units and appliances a lot, we are used to it because we build, sell and manage a lot of property. This was just so MUCH! I figure we lost about $10,000 worth of stuff and our contractor doing the actual refurb lost more than that in tools and equipment. Insurance does not cover theft of contents when the house is vacant. I am gobsmacked. I was just angry all day yesterday. My husband, after a good long run in the heat, proclaimed that the only way to cope with anger is to just get out there and sell a lot, make some money, and build more business. We will use it for fuel, he says. :) That's why I married him. We are scouring craigslist and when our stuff pops up, we will see it. I think there is a disconnect, sometimes people see a business and they see unlimited resources? Insurance coverage? I don't know, this actually comes out of my family's income. It is the money we use to pay tuition for college, buy books, pay for vehicles and food, our mortgage... I'm just sad, I guess, and when we figure out who did it I will be even more sad. I think it is someone who has worked for us out there. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
