I’m a home inspector, I’m a farmer, I’m an author and I’m a husband. I’m a parent of two boys, two girls and so far, I’m a grandparent of four grandsons. I grew up on a small ranch in central Oregon and we were poor. My dad was a cop, a carpenter and a cowboy. When something broke, he didn’t run to town and buy a new one. He first tried to fix it and if he couldn’t fix it he figure out how to make a new one. That was the beginning of my education.
Following in the footsteps of my dad, I became a D.Y.I.er, an inventor and a “Mr. fix-it”. When my wife ran the front-end loader into the back porch of the house I was building, or one of my sons crashes and wrecks a motorcycle, I don’t get mad I get busy and fix it. My first thought is always, “how am I going fix this?” When I need something I don’t go out and buy it, I see what’s out there and think, “I can make that” or “I can make that better”. That’s who I am, a Home-Grown-Engineer.
