My exposure to residential construction started when I was 10 years old. My parents decided to build our home and jammed a 6 month long building process into 10 years. They were building out of pocket, and while I give them credit for having the fortitude to go that route, I don’t recommend it for the weak of heart. Besides, building codes won’t allow it any longer.

My background in residential construction continued with a short stint as a Dewalt saw operator at a roof and floor truss company before I went in the Navy. After getting out (10 years later), I started with 84 Lumber working at the desk and then loading what I sold. That was the way the company worked back in 1984!

I stayed with the industry through all kinds of changes throughout the years. I became an outside salesman at a contractor yard, I worked at Lowes Home Center in retail management for almost 7 years, I was a custom home builder for 4 years, I have been (and still am) a handyman making a living with my tools, I was an operations manager handling shipping/receiving/warehouse and yard operations as well as doing the purchasing and special order sales for a small lumber yard. I’ve handled customer service and installed sales. I haven’t done it all – but I’ve done a bunch!

I have a substantial background in the residential construction industry and I’m turning that experience into a career of writing about the construction industry. If you have any writing projects that are relative to this industry, please reach out to me and let’s start a conversation about your needs. I look forward to hearing from you.
