How to get what you want- working with “a guy”

In this short episode I answer a listener question about getting what you want from a project. When you don’t work with a licensed contractor, but hire “a guy” that has been recommended to you, how do you communicate the scope and the details of the job? 

Answer:  Document what you want no matter who you are working with, be it a contractor or a jack-of-all-trades
