My name is Steve and I’ve been building things pretty much since I was a kid. Well actually I started out by taking things apart, out of curiosity, but that’s another story. I went to college but my ambition was always to have my own business. So I combined this need with my love of building things and started my own contracting business at the age of 26. I got married soon after and built the house that my wife and I lived in for the next 27 years, most of it with my own two hands. That also was one of my life’s ambitions and it was something that both of us could be proud of. It was a very emotional thing for us when we sold it to move to another state. But all good things must come to an end and we are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives.
I’m writing this blog for a few reasons. I gave up my contracting business because it became too difficult to remain profitable in the state where we lived and for health reasons. But there is still a part of me that misses it, and by interacting with people in this blog it helps fill that void. Of course, I have no idea how successful the blog will be but I’ll try hard to make it work.
