I purchased a 1890's Victorian on the west side of Colorado Springs 8 years ago. The plan at that time was to renovate the property. I have stripped several layers of old linoleum from the dining room floor, torn out the failing plaster in the same room, refinished the original woodwork, etc. For the past 20 years I have worked in El Paso County in the land development field as a planner. I was in the process of refinancing my house when I was laid off in January, now I am hoping to be able to keep it. Does anyone know of a financing source for the improvements. I would still like to get these done, prior to my balloon payment coming due in May. At that time I am planning on selling my house. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
