The Construction Of My First Loft
I've been planning on entering the sport of racing homers for
about two years. During those two years, I was unable to
get started in the sport, as I was renting a house rather than
buying. Since I knew I had to wait, I began trying to teach myself
about the sport by borrowing library books, visiting local flyers,
reading magazines, and web surfing. My racing homer web site
is even an extension of my ongoing learning process. I also had
never constructed anything of significance, so I began to try to educate
myself on general framing construction practices by looking at books,
videos, and talking with others experienced in building things.
|Basic Carpentry, by Sunset Books
proved to be an excellent source of information for the
beginner. (ISBN 0-376-01580-2, $12.95 US)
After months of planning, saving, and hard work, my wife and I
finally have selected and purchased our first home together. The
time is now to begin the construction process. I have decided to
document my experience on the web in hope that my successes and failures
may benefit others also just starting out. Taking the time to document
what I do will also help me develop a better understanding of what
I am doing, so this will be a benefit for me, as well.
