My name is Josh Dean. I'm a 35 year old husband, stay at home dad of 2 beautiful little girls, and fine finish carpenter of over 20 years. I owned a local business in Louisiana, where i was born and raised, but my wife and I decided to sell it all, and move our family to the eastcoast of southern Florida. Right near the Beach Boy!!!
I recently decided to share my wealth of information in the construction industry and start a blog " A Carpenter's Life".
My wife and I have flipped 5 houses inside of 10 years, and 2 childbirths. Just as soon as I think i've seen it all, I run across another hack job, and I can't figure out what the dumb dumb before me was thinking. I've been doing this for 20+ years and I'm still learning new things everyday.
Although there are industry standards and codes, basic construction is not an exact science. Meaning that fireplace you want built can be done thousands of ways. What I do might not be what the next guy does, and neither on is wrong. That's why, if you hire an individual, or a licensed contractor, communication is key to success!!!

I believe in doing things right the first time, theres a trick for everything, and family always comes first.
