My dad was a construction worker. Even though I knew that it wasn't the profession for me, I loved to watch him from a safe distance across the street. I would always pick up my dad from work, and as we would drive home, he would tell me all about his current projects. He taught me everything that I know about construction. This has come in handy when I have needed to make repairs or take on remodeling projects in my home. When I was redoing my bathroom, my dad even came to help me! He passed away a few weeks ago, and so I'm using this blog as a way to remember him by keeping up on the news of the construction world.
