One day I noticed that more and more people are entering the building materials industry without a background in any field related to our business.

It occurred to me that I could share my over thirty years experience in the building materials industry and on job sites to make things easier for these people and their employers.  With this in mind, I created this information exchange platform.

Here people can learn the basics of building materials and where to find them.  Also I provide insight to the various behind the scenes aspects of the industry such as manufacturing trusses or doors, different aspects of framing, how a house goes from a piece of paper to a load of lumber on a job site.

This is the beginning of what I hope is a long and interesting journey.

Again, welcome and I’m excited to share this adventure with you!
