     When we built the Riverbottoms house several free items fell in our lap, worth nearly $10,000. A relative paid an old debt by sending over a concrete man to do our walks and drives. The city sidewalk cracked when the roofing truck wheeled over a corner of it making a delivery. I noted the name of the driver and the date and replaced that part of sidewalk when a crew poured the cement pads for my back stairs and air conditioners. I took the concrete invoice to the roofing supply company and they paid it all, no questions asked, rather than quibble over how much each piece of concrete cost.

     After a boundary disagreement, a neighbor sent over 30 loads of topsoil for our yard, valued at $4,000. Another hauler brought me 10 dump truck loads of composted manure at no charge. Our foundation man gave us a free window well. Our siding man gave us free bathroom tile. Someone we had helped build gave us bricks for our brick walk.

     O-B Bill H. says: “We’ll be able to put in top-end stuff for a moderate amount of money. I got low-voltage quartz halogen spotlights from a friend, like they use in supermarkets to accent displays – they bring the color out. He had them left over from a job and they were going to be thrown away because they were special order, and I can use them in the house to accent sculpture and other art. Also over the kitchen island, and for reading and music lights.”
