20. My husband has been a residential remodeling contractor for nearly
30 years. I'm the business manager, though our daughter has been doing most of my duties for the last couple of years while I was in grad school and now teach math at community college. However, she is talking about getting another job and/or leaving town so I may be making friends with Quickbooks again. I still do the taxes and consult on financial matters.

Business has been bad this last year. Though he was never without work, he had to let all his other employees go and uses only subcontractors now. He built a shop on our property that he's moving into this weekend. No more paying $850 a month for rent and he loves the idea of being able to work more at home. He started off as a cabinet and trim subcontractor and that's still his speciality. He'll sub out big jobs but loves building a signature cabinet himself now and then. Plus he has PROMISED me that all the unfinished projects at our house will get finished now that the shop is on the premises. We'll see about that! :D
