    Fix It 101 | Attic Space

    To store or not to store? That is the question when it comes to attic space. Jeff is so much against using attic as storage that it ranks next to garbage disposals on his "Why would you do this?" list. So when a caller ask for advice about this situation there is really only one answer that will suffice. Also after another round of home improvement advice from Pam, Jeff, and Jason we also hear how a recent car buying experience left Jason wanting a more unrefined experience.
