The Secret Life of Buildings – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

Somewhere along the line, somebody decided that seeing we live in an environment of extreme humidity and termites, it would be a great idea if we all lived in wooden houses.  As a consequence, we’re pretty much all familiar with the headaches of renovation and construction.

But not as familiar as Scott Wolfe.

Scott Wolfe

Scott’s company, Zlien, specializes in taking on the painful parts of construction so other people in the construction industry don’t have to.

Andrew Preble

Andrew Preble is the creator of one of the most unique and popular entertainment attractions in the city. It’s called Escape My Room. If you haven’t experienced it yourself or know someone who has, on this edition of Out to Lunch you’ll find out why thousands of New Orleanians think Andrew is a genius.
