How to Choose A Contractor (and work with one) - Organized 31

I’ve lived in 20+ homes and think of myself as a competent, careful person.  My husband and I usually research any purchase or major decision that we make.  We are spreadsheet pros and cons kinda people.  But sometimes, no matter how careful you are, sometimes you just make the wrong choice (you can’t know what […]
