Father, husband, finance professional, and woodworking enthusiast.
I've always been interested in home improvements, as I grew up in a house where my father was always doing some sort of renovation to the place. I grew up watching This Old House and Hometime, but really got hooked New Yankee Workshop. When I eventually got my own place, I slowly started building my tool collection and skills. I'm very interested in all sorts of home improvement projects, but I'm especially interested in woodworking. I've been woodworking for about 10 years now. I was also a contestant on HGTV's second season of All American Handyman.
Anyway, with two little kids, a wife, a house and a job that doesn't afford me much free time, I don't have much time to play around in my workshop. But when I do, I try to make the most of it.

Took me a couple of hours to put up the 30 pound roofing paper, and about half a day to do the shingles. I had never done shingles before, so I wasn’t sure how long it was going to take. I used just over three bundles of shingles, plus abo...
Our four year-old daughter picked the color. It definitely adds a pop of color to our yard, if nothing else… Final step is to paper and shingle the roof. It will be the first time I ever did roofing. Should be fun.
I got up all the roof sheathing (1/2” CDX) and the exterior walls (3/8” LP SmartSide panels). The windows went in too. They are prefab shed windows (14” x 21” white aluminum). I custom made the doors. They are just 2...
It took me a full day to get the roof framed…AND I had previously cut and marked the ridge beam and all of the full length rafters (ie those that didn’t intersect with a valley rafter. I knew the roof would be hard (because of the gab...
