Welcome to a portfolio of some of my favorite projects.

I hope you find my designs and workmanship inspiring. If you want to work with me, however, that’s where it could get interesting.

Beginning in May 2016, my wife and I left Los Angeles – where I was a carpenter who writes blogs to become a traveling writer who builds – a story unfolding @ TravelLightLifestyle.

Click Projects On The Road for some pictures of notable projects since beginning our travels.

We started our trip by working our way north, establishing a pattern of short-term “sightseeing” stops followed by longer, settle in and “do some building” layovers. There have been decks built in California, Texas, and Colorado, pergolas in New Mexico and Arizona and a shell-off restoration of a ’66 Airstream in Grass Valley.  A project you can read about here.

I have all of my tools and will continue to be practicing my trade as we travel through the country.  I advertise on Craigslist.

Thanks for visiting,


PS.   If you have an exciting project, we would definitely alter our course to your locale – something like a grand deck or porch, restoration work or building a tiny house (where I could build at a discount in exchange for time-sharing). Let’s talk!
