“Until I started renting, I didn’t know ... the difference between having gas or electric,” Lewis said. “For me as a baker — I bake and decorate cakes on the side — I learned they don't bake the same way. Gas cooks more evenly than an electric oven.”
Lewis said the event welcomes those from all walks of life, including those considering purchasing their first house.
“It’ll give you more information and more knowledge on things that you didn’t know before,” she said.
