Hey, I’m Zak!

Welcome to my blog.

For as long as I can remember, I have been neck deep in the home renovating and interior decorating space. From generation to generation, my family has taken a great deal of pride in being crafty and experienced with building, woodwork, tiling, painting, and everything in between. That tradition lives on in me, as I’ve spent most of my life learning from my father and uncles. I wish to share my knowledge with you. This is why I started The Smallest Step. To help you take one step towards building and decorating the home of your dreams!
