About Me
We Live in a Built World

Most of us love, or at least appreciate, nature. But if we are being honest, we mostly live in a built world. What we mean by this is that most of our surroundings are not entirely natural, but have instead been created, mostly by construction workers and contractors. This is true of our homes, our landscaping, our schools, and our places of employment.

We use it to share info about construction with readers like you.
