The construction site was my playground
My father built custom homes in the 60's. When I became big enough to handle tools, my father would assign me to work as a helper for the various master tradesman that worked for him; masons, plumbers, carpenters, electricians, pipe fitters, etc. I would dig ditches, fetch wood, pull wire, cut pipe, what ever an apprentice would do! From these experiences I have acquired a genuine understanding of the good and bad aspects of the home building process.
I currently maintain a contractors license in TN for the Building, Plumbing, Electrical and HVAC trades. Because of my diverse background and experience, many consider me to be an excellent troubleshooter and I often receive calls from loan underwriters, appraisers, real estate agents, etc., when they have a question about houses.
