Working in the commercial construction industry, in order for our company to stay afloat, we all took a 1/3 paycut from two years ago. I purchased a modest home 5 years ago in Vancouver, built an addition, and tried to sell it in February 2008. With the housing market in the tank, I could not sell it and break even. With little option, as a divorced father with 3 young girls, I rented out my home, and moved in with a friend in Portland. She has 2 daughters as well. Although it was very crowded during the holidays, it made for a new experience for everyone, and an affordable solution for both my friend and me.
