Groundbreaking in Chattanooga

Episode DRH-1601F

Kelli Smith and James Ladd are engaged to be married and have big dreams about building a dream house in Chattanooga, Tenn. James has designed the five-story, 6,500-square-foot home himself, but the site they've chosen to build on is a 45-degree slope, making it virtually unbuildable. Kelli's father, B.R. Smith, is a general contractor and has agreed to help get the job done, and her brother Chad Smith is onboard as project manager. After four months of weather delays, the day of the groundbreaking finally arrives.
