Small things can grow into big consequences. This is true with life in general, as well as with the technical side of your home. It’s especially instructive for anyone with a finished or soon-to-be-finished basement, but the lessons go beyond this. Learn from the trouble of others that I outline in “How Cutting Corners and Carelessness Can Lead to Calamity” and it can save you grief. Because, a little more diligence and a little less cost cutting meant a whole lot of trouble could have been avoided. Like I said, little things can make a big difference.
