You know the old phrase, “The cobbler’s wife has no shoes?” Well, I grew up with a landscaper for a father and am now married to a custom home builder. And the phrase seems to apply to these professions as well. It seems we always have projects going on around here that rarely get completed. My husband is amazing at his job – organized, professional, friendly, results-driven (I could go on), but when he gets home from his job, he wants to relax! And I can understand that.
Thankfully, we have made friends with a lot of the subcontractors that work for my husband and I have learned quite a lot from asking them questions and watching them work. So, I decided to start a new series on the blog called, “The Builder’s Wife Shares” to give tips, tricks, checklists, and guidelines for your home. These are from the mouths of the professionals that help my husband build some pretty amazing homes.
This series will help the typical homeowner cut costs, consider which projects require a professional, and encourage a little bit of DIY (where appropriate). I look forward to passing on information I have gleaned from the professionals.
I will be sharing things that I have learned as the builder’s wife; but if you have questions, I have connections. I would love to hear what you want to know, so I can get the answers for you. Please leave your questions in the comments section and I will give (or get) the answers for you.
