Tryon Palace was built in 1770 as the first permanent capital of the colony of North Carolina. Governor William Tryon had brought John Hawks, an English architect, with him to design the palace like manor homes in London. It became one of the finest buildings in America.
Sadly, in February of 1798, a fire started in the cellar, and the fire quickly devastated the main building.
In the 1930s, volunteers stumbled upon the original blueprints and decided to restore the palace.
Today, guides dressed in Revolutionary Era clothes give tours of Tyron Palace. Everything looks authentic due to the blueprints and John Hawks’ letters. These blueprints guided the restorers to know what to create.
Your retirement blueprint should operate in much the same way. You can build the retirement of your dreams using it and it should contain protection against life’s unexpected “fires.”
Not if they happen. When. And after you are gone, children and grandchildren will have “picture” of your authentic legacy, built to specs.
