Do It Right the First Time

Heather, a grade school librarian, did everything by the book when she bought her first house. It had a basement apartment ready to rent so she could offset her mortgage payment. However, not everything was as it appeared. Over the course of a year, the apartment slowly fell apart, adding up to $40,000 worth of repairs. The only way Heather can keep the house now is if she finally gets the job done right and finds a renter.
