I have been employed in residential and light commercial construction for 40 years, working for various companies. By adding some "how to do things," I share my knowledge, hoping 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.
