House Building Tips for a better quality, more efficient & comfortable home.
These are the best house building tips around. If you are building a new home, then the information on this site will be invaluable.
My goal is to educate you about the house building process, materials, proper installation and general guidance to building a great house. I have been involved in the house construction industry most of my life and want to pass the information from my experiences/knowledge to you in your quest of building your perfect home.
I have remodeled many old homes, been employed in several different construction trades & I am a major do-it-yourselfer. I currently own a home inspection company and have been inspecting for many years which is where my experience is most relevant since I get to see it done many different ways and what works & doesn't work.
