Storyline

Being forced to paint the hotel's exterior gives Joe the idea that he can go into business as a general contractor, especially when he finds out that the wealthy Douglases are looking for a contractor to help fix up their place. Although Joe knows nothing about construction work, he plans on hiring subcontractors for their expertise while he garners all the profits. He does get Mrs. Douglas to hire him, which starts his juggling act. He plays the hotel and the Douglas jobs against each other. He also finds that he may be scheming rich, but cash poor which means that he needs to find some additional capital to get both jobs going. Uncle Joe's scheming affects Kate in unexpected ways, so she comes up with a plan to set Uncle Joe straight. Written by Huggo
