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 really have to step back and thank our construction workers for creating these aspects of the world we live in. This blog is one way that we give thanks. We use it to share info about construction with readers like you.
