Hello. :) My career path has been; free-lance handy-man; carpenter; building contractor; owner of a carpentry and joinery business; part time author; and now free-lance carpenter and founding member of the cape carpenters co-operative.
This path has left me with an integrated understanding of construction and it's various elements. i am able to measure, and safely cut and join timber, the core of carpentry, as well as design, quantify and plan with an integrated understanding of function, theme, time, aethetics, resources and methods.
i understand the inter-faces between the trades. i recognise that humans are sensitive and emotional beings and attempt to manage with fairness and firmness.
i think i should stop now. :)
