ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – Voilet Raymond’s backyard is finally a construction zone. The sounds of a saw and hammers are music to her ears.
That’s because board by board, her hideaway – a she shed – is taking form.
“I know this would not have happened without you,” Raymond said. “8 was on my side. I’m glad I called Behnken.”
Raymond turned to Better Call Behnken for helping getting the she shed she paid for finally constructed. She paid Florida Shed nearly $15,000 on the $19,000 shed and only got a concrete slab and a pile of wood.
We went all over Pinellas County looking for Florida Shed owner Joe Campenella. He got the message and called back to say he’ll make this right. He said his business suffered after he fell ill in January.
“I got the flu,” Campenella said. “Flu turned into pneumonia. Pneumonia turned into heart failure. So I had to go out on leave. Consequently, when I went out on leave, I thought I was in good hands, and I wasn’t.”
Campenella showed up himself with a worker and started construction over the weekend. Then Monday, he put rafters up.
“It will be 100 percent complete Friday,” he said. “We still have windows to put in, a couple of doors. We’re going to put the rafters up in a couple of minutes.”
Campenella says he has a few other customers that he needs to take care of, but he promises to make things right.
