I have been employed in residential, light commercial construction for 40 years, working for various companies. By adding some "how to do things," I share my knowledge, hoping that you can eliminate some of the problems you run into when building your home. All the How To's that you find on this page are the way I would do it. It is not the only way to do it, and I am sure some very "knowledgeable" people have different and better ways of doing things. It is amazing how many things I have learned and improved on over the years of working with other people, and I am sure I will learn new and better ways to come.
