I took the project for some reasons that were clear to me and others not so clear. I’m sure a phycologist would have a field day theorizing why a person would put themselves in this position by choice. Hero complex? Superiority complex? Still trying to prove I’m better than the other guy? What better way to prove my brilliance than fixing “their” shoddy work, right? Damn that ego! Even the call from the building inspector warning me that this was a “very problematic” project wasn’t enough to deter or scare me off, although it did raise a red flag. The fact...

The Vision Every remodel project whether you are planning it or not has to start out with a vision and every remodel project is much like a story, it has a beginning, a middle, and an ending. Often, actually always, it's the planning in the beginning the dictates the ending. When you hear somebody tell you” if they had only known in the beginning” well then you know it wasn't planned very well at the outset. Also, the idea that there is any predictability what so ever when you're uncovering an existing house, deconstructing structural and mechanical elements is a fool’s...

Hey Kris! Please excuse all typos as I am doing this by voice. I try and correct them but I might miss some. Thanks for contacting me! Garage floors are typically A separate pour from the main house slab And not connected to it. You can look at the edges where the Garage slab butts up to the house slab and see if there is a small gap and possibly a piece of expansion material. It may look like a little piece of rubber or wood or there may just be a gap between the garage slab and the beam of the...

Patience is the word this week So I have 2 clients I'm doing too pretty good size projects for. One is living in the house and one is living off site. The one living in the house is pressing me because they want me to get finished because I'm making a huge mess and I've only just started literally within the last few weeks. And they want to celebrate T-DAY in their new kitchen. The one living off site is pressing me because they want to get back in their house because it's taken so long to do the project not...

30 years ago while sitting at a desk as a phone receptionist Lisa Dritschler never thought she would be the President of a home building company in 2018. After all, everyone around her was very male and very dominating. The building industry in Texas was the wild wild west of the business world, smoky back room deals, good ol boy networks, and shady bankers made the headlines, but there was light at the end of the long twisted tunnel. Lisa was lucky, she worked for men she admired and respected, men that were willing to teach her and mentor her....

In 1977 or so I was invited by some friends to help rebuild a lodge in the mountains near the small town of Gold Hill, Colorado. Since I had nothing better to do and was wasting time and my mothers hard earned money screwing off in junior college in Tyler, Texas, I jumped at the chance. So off I went to live in an old abandoned ski cabin, with no water or electricity on an old abandoned ski run on what would become the turning point in my life. My 1st job as grunt and sacrificial "helper" was to scale to...

Today was the start of a dream for me. I finally have a professionally designed and managed show that I can call my own. Although I have been on air for several months and have really enjoyed it, there was something definitely missing. AM Radio is fun but the audience is small and shrinking, the real audience in my opinion is social media but that is a big broad medium. I had lots of pieces started non of the pieces were tied together, the dots didn't connect, there was too much potential that wasn't being utilized. The beautiful thing about...
