I am retired and reside in Eastern Oregon. My grandfather and father were carpenters and while I worked with my father when I was a kid, I regret that I did not acquire as much construction knowledge as I should have. This was in no way the fault of my father. My wife and I have over the years remodeled a house, built several decks, roofed a couple of houses and built a couple of pole buildings. Most of these projects required many phone calls to my father when we had questions. Sadly he is not longer with us and I find that I still have many questions when starting and during a project. I hope that I may obtain help from DIY Forum on a project that we are in the middle of at present.
