A HELOC from Fidelity Bank brought the Kim family back together again.

Looking to enjoy more time outdoors this summer? So are the Kims.

Last year, the Kim family got a little closer than usual. With mom and dad both working remotely and the kids maintaining an e-learning schedule, the Kim household felt a little too cozy some days. Mom, a business executive, would be on Zoom meetings while Rachael, their oldest, was trying to practice clarinet in the background. Dad was always on the phone, reaching out to his real estate clients, while his sons Tyler and Josh, were crying for snacks every hour. This combined with their home’s open floorplan left the family feeling frustrated and on edge. The only family member who seemed to be enjoying this new setup was Rusty, the family dog.

Even when their city began to open back up, the kids had a hybrid school schedule and Mom and Dad were still required to work from home. Everyone in the household felt burnt out, especially in the winter when escaping outdoors wasn’t an option.

The Solution

With a HELOC loan from Fidelity Bank, The Kims were able to secure financing to get their family the extra space they needed — starting with turning their deck into a screened-in porch where Mom or Dad could work while keeping an eye on the kids. They were also able to create an outdoor patio space where they could eat, relax, and entertain visiting family members.

Now, Rachael puts on weekly concerts for her family, Tyler and Josh host their own outdoor magic show, Dad shows off his skills on the grill, and Mom gets to soak up the sun after a long day of work meetings. Thanks to Fidelity Bank, the Kims’ have an outdoor oasis away from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives, so they can enjoy quality time with their family, without feeling confined.
