As this story begins, Tricia and Andy Woodman had just purchased an empty lot in The Cloisters, an elegant gated community in the River Oaks section of East Memphis. Much as they both loved the area, the truth is that while Andy really wanted to build their dream house, Tricia was less than enthusiastic about taking on such a time-consuming and painstaking project. With her sister-in-law, Billie Pelts, she is co-owner of Simply Delicious Caterings; Andy co-owns Corky’s Barbecue with brother-in-law Barry Pelts. All of which keeps the Woodman and Pelts families mighty busy.
