For those of you keeping track (and keeping us in prayer) I finally have a HUD update! As you know we qualified 3 years ago for HUD assistance and have been slowly working our way up the list since then. Well, we finally made it to the top! I attended the preliminary meeting and they came and did the first inspection on our rental house. My big job will be cleaning out the storage shed in the back yard that the roof caved in on. I have to weed through to see what is still good and find a way to haul the rest to the dump. There are a few small things that we were expecting the landlord would have to do............. not really any surprises there. The biggest thing sounds like the wiring in the back 2 storage rooms in the basement. A lot of it is not covered properly and there are some spots that need junction boxes. Nothing too major for Randy I think. My landlord is Randy Thomas and he has already expressed his commitment to work with me and to work with HUD to help us be able to stay here. Once everything is up to code and we pass a final inspection, HUD will begin covering a portion of our rent here with their payment going directly to Randy
