About the Author
Above all, I'm a father and a grandfather. I've began writing first to entertain my family, hence my fiction novels for children. When I began getting lots of calls about technical information concerning my job, I decided to write some non-fiction books. I am an ICC certified combination inspector for a small to mid-sized city in East Texas. With the background in construction and the education from several apprinticeships I've been able to obtain several trade license including a masters. I now do consulting for home construction and I'm working on a series of books to help the common man (or woman) understand how plumbing and electrical systems work.

Just thumbing through the book looking at the pictures is educational in itself. This book adresses the actual construction methods with easy to understand text and photos to back it up. I also like how in most of the book the author explains how and why things are done the way they're done. It does lean a little to the southern half of the states, but most of the information I saw will be relivant anywhere. Color photos!
