When I was a young boy, my father owned a heavy equipment rental business that supplied construction vehicles to contractors. When his clients reported problems with the equipment, my dad would always go down to the construction site and make sure they were using the vehicles properly, and he'd take me with him. That's where my childhood fascination with construction and contractors started! Since then, I've watched and researched dozens of constructions for fun. I'm also preparing to take over the family business, so I've talked to plenty of contractors. I figured what I've learned might be useful to people looking to have their own homes or properties built, so I'm sharing it all here on this blog.
