This text is primarily focused on the preservation of the existing building stock, both residential and commercial. In America, there are thousands of employees at many levels of government who are responsible for enforcing laws, codes and regulations designed to address the condition of buildings and property. None of these people earned a degree specifically tailored to code enforcement duties from an accredited institution of higher learning. There is no such degree. For 28 consecutive years of a 34 year career in the field, the author offered instruction to thousands of people on the issues involved in operating a code enforcement program.

I had to learn fast. I had to support those kids on a fast food paycheck while I put myself through school. Not only did I manage to do it but I topped my own expectations. We ended up living better than I ever would have imagined. Since then I have not only quit my day job but I have built up sufficient income to become a single stay-­at-­home mother to my youngest child. This feat would not have been possible without the frugality of shoestring living. We live well on about $500 a month - and know how to live on even LESS!
