My name is Mike Merisko. I am a carpenter by trade and have been at it for 26 years. The majority of that time I've spent building and remodeling homes as a framing and general contractor. I also spent some time working commercial and bridge construction. I now build exhibits for an exhibit and tradeshow company.
I started this site to help people in what could possibly be the biggest investment of their life, that being building a new home or putting on an addition. Even if your project isn't of the epic proportions of the above mentioned we will be adding articles on the smaller aspects of building and home improvement. Some of these articles will be written by me and the rest that I've scoured the internet for.
If I help but one person and make it easier for them to build their dreamhouse or make a dreamhouse out of their existing home, then this is all worth while.
