After acquiring carpentry and masonry skills, he became a general contractor in 1977. He is a frequent contributor to Fine Homebuilding and has written three books on building, all published by The Taunton Press (Measuring, Marking & Layout (1999), Working Alone (1999), and The Complete Visual Guide to Building a House (2014). He lives in Durham, N.C.
