Should you install flooring, wall paint, or trim first? Christina’s husband and general contractor, Sean Dennis, chats about the questions you have about home renovation, the order of operations, when to know when NOT to DIY renovate, and what it’s like working with The DIY Mommy.
I was able to convince my husband Sean to join me for today’s Dear DIY Mommy podcast! As a general contractor, he’s a wealth of knowledge when it comes to home building and home renovations. We’ve done many renovations together and I’ve learned so much from him.
Home renovation & build projects Sean and I have done together include:
- our Little Lake House vacation rental
- my brother’s kitchen renovation
- my parents’ house build
- our own house build
