After watching the increasingly popular Bootlegging Brothers perform at the Hamilton County Bluegrass Festival, Hattie Hayes gets the brilliant idea to have the bluegrass band record a commercial jingle promoting her family’s Moonshine Shack.

Whitney and Buck Whittaker’s new house-flipping project is still technically a house, but this will be the first time the cousins are attempting to rehab a worn-down houseboat floating in a Nashville, Tennessee, river. While this has Whitney researching and Youtubing videos on the proper paints and sealants required to keep The Skinny Dipper from leaking water, it’s their neighbor in the slip next to them who proves to be the bigger challenge.

Batten Down the Belfry By Diane Kelly: Review/Giveaway/Guest Post

by Sandra Murphy

Whitney and her cousin Buck have flipped houses before, but this new project, a church and a parsonage, is bigger and riskier. With the beautiful stained glass windows and perfect acoustics, it could be a gold mine.
