Think your bathroom is too small and you can't fit everything in? Think again. I found this brilliant(sarcasm implied) remodel at a recent home inspection. The bath was too small to fit both a toilet and a shower. What's the solution? Combine them of course! Brodie Georgia Home Inspector
t hasn't happened very often, but a few times I have been asked to give a recommendation on Linkedin for someone that I really don't know. I have connected to them, usually through mutual connections, but that's the extent of our relationship. They are a name in a list. Don't do t...
