Remodeling Your Home So It Works for Your Family

Hi, I'm Veronica, and welcome to my blog. I first realised my home was no longer suitable for us when I went to a friend's house for dinner and she finished cooking a whole hour quicker than I would have! My house was great when my husband and I were the only inhabitants, but it just didn't work for a family with three kids. Luckily, our next door neighbour, Toby, was a remodeling contractor.

I'm eternally grateful for the information Toby shared with me, so now I'm passing on the good deed by posting the advice here for you.
