It feels like just yesterday I was bringing her onto her first job site - but now when it comes to tiling, I call in my big gun: Sherry Holmes. Let the tiler of the Holmes family tell you why she prefers it over carpet. Do you agree?

Anyone want spaghetti for dinner? Seriously, folks don't tackle your electrical as a DIY project. Even I don't mess with my own electrical. I leave to it Frank.
