Hello, my name is Lisa. Welcome to my blog. The topics I will cover in my blog are to do with construction. I should be clear from the outset, I do not work in construction myself, but I recently hired a team of construction workers to carry out some work renovating and extending my business premises. I was dreading the day work started because I didn't understand anything about what was going on. Thankfully, the guys were great and they explained everything they were doing to me. My business is much bigger and better than it was before. Enjoy my blog!
