    Hooray For Build Back Better!

    Yes, materials cost went up raising the price of the house, many delays in building, and a single military income.

    Did KISS invent the power ballad?

    Styx Lady (1973) does ramp up a little. Beth was 1976 and much more subdued. When I think of power ballads I always assume hair bands \m/

    How often do you redecorate your home?

    My rental Waldorf house I had built in 1996 still has 2 rooms with original paint. My Mechanicsville house still has all original paint and carpets (except for mom's basement apartment, she changed it up) since built in 2006. I have no sense of decorating and hate it! :D
