Hello all,

I'm Jim Drewery, from north central MO, owner of House Docs. Started working construction as a teenager working for my grandpa, remodeling old houses for rentals and resale. Other than a 6 yr stint in the USAF right after high school I've worked in the construction business all my life. Done everything from framing to drywall, roofing to tilesetting. Try to keep current on new products and practices.

I see some familiar folks here already, Hi Tim, are they biting yet?

Very nice site Nathan, really like the color scheme, very easy on the eyes! Keep up the good work my man!

Steve here, sorry for the delay.
Dad was a GC and I grew up in construction, switched to engineering when he died in '73. I have a BE,ME and PHD's in fluid dynamics and hydrodynamics. I never really left construction as I built a few of my own homes during my 'engineer days'. I started my first business in '89, shortly followed by re-entering the construction business in '91, I recently purchased a yacht stabilizer business and intend to open a window treatment storefront when the building is completed.
I am a Residential Contractor and concentrate on remodels, I also sub to large developers, zeroing in on custom kitchens. Intriguing custom cabnitry in exotic woods is my specialty.

I just joined here as a referral by Jim Drewery (aka housedocs, aka awesomedale). Been DIYing for more than 50 years (started out as a mere child, of course...lol). I also just voluntarily resigned over at DIY.com as a super moderator, group moderator, moderator and member after more than five years and over 13,000 posts, PMs and emails. (Don't ask...too long and not worth the telling). I enjoy helping others, but I'm not a pro at any of it. Keep me straight, if I blow one. I have a very thick skin, but a very low tolerance of BS. LOL. Mike

Mike very happy you accepted my invitation. I think you'll find this a more enjoyable experience than at that other place.

Jim, just remember a bad day of fishing is always better than a good day at work.

And yes, the smallies on the Meramec are biting just fine.
