    What is Remodeling going to be like in 2023?

    What is Remodeling going to be like in 2023?

    Recently I was asked to do a podcast by Dennis Oz of RTA Marketing.  It was interesting to be asked questions instead of the other way around.  If you are a listener of Home Design Chat with Nancy, you know that I interview my guests about their expertise in the Design field and ask questions that I feel would be advantageous to my audience.  This time I was the one answering all the questions.

    After listening to the podcast, I decided to share it with you as there were topics that you might find interesting. I certainly look forward to your comments on this podcast or any other podcast from the past.
