Martinez: Remodeled house gets unwanted makeover when truck backs into it
News from Contra Costa Times:

MARTINEZ — A house undergoing remodeling received an unwanted and potentially expensive makeover when a vehicle backed into it Thursday morning, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.

The incident occurred at 7:29 a.m. when the driver of a delivery truck was trying to turn his vehicle around in the 4900 block of Pacheco Boulevard near Arnold Drive, Sgt. Virgil Aguilar said.

As the driver — a 57-year-old man — put the truck in reverse, he accidentally backed into a single-family residence, causing damage worth an estimated $ 10,000, Aguilar said.

No injuries were reported. No arrests were made.

The house is unoccupied because it is being renovated, Aguilar said.

Tice suggested a total remodel, which included new floors, light fixtures, appliances, new paint, landscaping and more.
The homeowner spent $ 14,000 for all the upgrades.

Tice said the house sold in the days for $ 250,000, more than making up the money the homeowner invested.

“There are people out there that don’t have the money to spend,” Tice said. “We encourage them to get a home-equity line of credi…………… continues on KPHO Phoenix
