Baby Anna makes a cameo in this video as I share my tips for working with contractors:

    Feed them!! I learned that a long time ago during our remodels. It’s amazing how much more work gets completed because the workers have been energized with some fried chicken and cold sweet tea! Enjoying your blog and remodel. Thanks for sharing sweet little Anna, what a blessing! : )
