My name is David LaFerney, and ever since I first took something apart to see what was inside, or made a sling shot out of a branch and strips of inner tube, at about 6-7, I’ve been a do-it-yourselfer. Eventually (around 1987) I became a construction contractor – not the kind that wears khakis and carries a clipboard all the time (although I later did that for a few years too) – the kind with a tool belt and ladder racks on my pickup truck.
I’ve never met a construction problem that I couldn’t solve – yet. I must admit though that my solution hasn’t always been what the customer wants to hear, but that’s another story. Over the years I’ve designed, installed, replaced and repaired just about ever part and system of an average home, although my favorite trade is probably electrical wiring. For the last few years my construction business has been focused on building energy efficient, affordable homes using cost effective conventional materials and techniques – energy efficiency is really one of my “things”.
I’d love to hear from you.
