Staci Barber got in touch with me after listening to the podcast, wanting to share her experiences renovating her first house, moving on to a second house and the lessons she is going to implement the second time around.

About our guest:

Staci Barber is a marketing director for Boston-based architecture and interior design firm Margulies Perruzzi. Staci has a passion for all-things home renovations and design. At the age of 29, she and her husband bought their first home, in need of major TLC, just outside of Boston, MA. Five years and many renovation lessons learned later, they have sold their lovingly restored 1930 bungalow. Now, they are embarking on another set of renovations for their new-to-them 1901 dream home in a neighborhood they used to hope they could one day live.
