When we work on these kind of projects together, Mr Holly handles the construction end and I handle the property management end once it's done. During the construction phase I also help with the designing decisions, ordering materials, bringing lunches, fetching supplies, and at the end I do the detailed paint work too. This makes for a great working relationship for us because we aren't stepping on each others toes...and he hates dealing with the administration details and tenant issues.
Do you and your life-partner work together? It can be a real problem for some couples. We had difficulty in the beginning. Then a couple that we know gave us the best advice. They run a very happening restaurant and managed to not make each other crazy. We asked how they do it. She said that he runs the "back of the house" (kitchen, ordering, kitchen staff) and she runs the "front of the house" (dining area, customer interaction, servers). They each have their own 'zones' and therefore they don't share the same responsibilities, because they each have their own. If the staff in front of the house has an issue, she is the go-to person, and likewise for him in the back of the house. They have been in business for over 10 years and they still choose to spend their 2 days off a week together, so we decided to follow their advice.
So, until I get back, if you come looking for me, I wont be here in front of my computer...but I will be back as quick as I can. In the mean time please enjoy some of my older posts that you might have missed before. When I have little breaks I will be spending that time replying to your comments and visiting your blogs as well.
