A Word From Kelly Bacon

"I have been in the building industry for virtually all my adult life. It is something that is in my blood and I truly enjoy to this day. I am looking forward to working with The Spruce help readers who want the satisfaction of building something big or fixing things around the house. A little knowledge, planning, and willingness will make the job smoother and professional-looking. I hope to help The Spruce readers enjoy and complete their next project."
