Mark Steines of ‘Home and Family’ sits down with Adam and Ray for a podcast about lying to inspectors, getting trapped under a house, and arguing with your neighbor over property space.


Show Summary

Adam and Ray open the show arguing about how long they’ve known each other. Mark Steines is also in studio, and Adam talks with Mark about playing football through college. The guys also talk about running marathons, their recent race at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, and the problems with inspectors. Next up, they respond to a video question about bathroom renovation, and an email about filling in exterior sunroom vents and working with stucco. Calls this week include fighting with a neighbor over a retaining wall, a hallway that needs insulation, and Ray’s advice to a new generation of renters.

    I’m with you about the bath, Ray. Get a nice tub of hot water, get some suds going, throw on some ambient music, and go full masculine-pamper mode. Screw all the naysayers, buddy!
