Are you looking for a home and feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of a rehab?
Do you own, and want to educate yourself before engaging contractors on a renovation project?
Created in response to a rising demographic of single women homeowners, this workshop is for all individuals who want to gain a better understanding of home improvement and construction management, with a focus on making residential renovation and rehab more approachable for women.
