I've always loved wood.

My father was a store designer and display man --also a DIYer so typical of the world war two veteran.

The smell of freshly cut wood brings back memories of my dad.

I was lucky enough to make my living building things for the greater part of my life.

Like so many folks,I started down the road to being a builder as a young man--but life took a turn.I put away the chisels and saws for a time.

For over 20 years,I was a formal off premise caterer---that is a long story ,best left for another time.

I sold that business in 1993---I was looking forward to starting a new business---Importing fine giftware--well that idea never has happened,yet.

I found a need for work with flexible hours-

What else? remodeling---the jobs started out small--and grew --

I've curbed the size of the jobs to kitchen and bathrooms---but we did build two additions in the last couple of years---

The work is fun---retirement is looming on the horizon---perhaps the importing business would make a nice third career----
