I can answer any construction related question in regards to carpentry, concrete, drywall, masonry, structural elements of any type of building, residential or commercial. Interior or exterior.
Custom Commercial and residential buildings. Churches, theaters, schools and auditoriums. Most recently I am working with the Catholic Church on several design build committees. I have a website related to scheduling and project supervision. Although my expertise is more related to multimillion dollar commercial, educational and theatrical projects my generous credentials in residential and remodelling construction make me a viable source of information regarding all forms of building questions.
Building has been my life from the time my father bought me my first Erector Set and had me mixing concrete for his additions and projects at age 8. I get to live a childs dream world fantasy of bulldozers , cranes, big trucks, in real life! And make a good living at it. How great is that?
This is an everchanging landscape of technology and advancement which requires constant attention to new techniques and materials as they come on the market.
