Hi, My name is Gary. I live in WA State, in a 1910 craftsman 1-1/2 story bungalow, which I'm still working on since 1976! Added a 3/4 bath, and 3 bedrooms on top, back in '89. Carpenter apprentice in 1973, building houses (framing) in 1975 alone. Had a framing business for 9 years till 2003, when my company insurance went sky-high. Remodel carpenter for the last 6 years, and a new general contractor company this year, such timing!
I noticed all contributors are civil and polite here, which is hard to find anymore. Keep up the good job! I hope to help contribute with my 36 years experience in the field, and secret tips I've learned over the years. Be safe, GBR
