How to Approach Contractors With Knowledge: A Contracting Blog

Hi! My name is Pam, and I recently learnt how scary it can be to hire contractors. I have to admit that in many cases, I didn't even know which questions to ask first. After remodelling my entire home, including putting in a new foundation, I learnt a lot about working with contractors, and I am going to cover all of that in this blog. I am a nurse, and I love my job. I live with my sister Beth in our parents' old home with Beth's 16-year-old daughter. I love to write, but this is one of my first public projects. I hope you like it. Thank you for reading.
