5 Remodeling Blogs and Directories

From on May 13, 2009 in General Remodel

Since I’m a remodeling blogger myself, I’m always looking at other blogs in the remodeling arena to see what my fellow bloggers are talking about. With home remodeling being the lively and fascinating subject that it is, there’s no shortage of conversation going on in the blogosphere about all angles of remodeling. Although it’s tempting to focus on the newest “kids” on the blogging block, there are some well established ones that are deserving of attention, too. Have a look at this list and bookmark the ones that look like they’ll be most useful to you.
