I have been a DIYer for quite a while. At various times in my life I have made a living as a welder, industrial plumber, electronics technician, and for the last 20 years I have been a firefighter, paramedic, and now investigator.
Because of the schedule and having time off from the fire station, and with the knowledge and experience i have had, I have remodeled our house, and built metal buildings.
All of that to say that I will soon be starting a new project; our Barndominium. I will be building a 1800ft2 metal shop, and putting a 1000ft2 3 bedroom 'apartment' in it.
I look forward to building, and will be here often I am sure asking questions.
