Hello! My name is Carla. I have always been around construction. My parents ran a contracting business, and on school holidays, they always brought me along. I was pretty adept at using tools at a young age. Later, I became interested in architecture and saw construction from that angle. Now, I've stepped back from it all to focus on my growing family and my novel. However, I feel like I have all this chatter about the construction industry in my mind, and I'm eager to share it. When I have writer's block on my novel, writing technical articles helps jog ideas and inspiration. At any rate, I hope you like the posts and "chatter" here.
