They bought a great home 10 years and 2 kids ago that needed renovations. When it came time to start on the basement for more space, the project required more than the just the two of them and their time on weekends. Members for over 10 years, they walked into the branch one afternoon and walked out with their perfect solution…a home equity line of credit from LMCU. Four dinner parties, 27 play dates, and 8 visits from the in-laws later, Fred and Meg are loving their new space and already planning their next home project. Hear more of Fred and Meg’s story below.
