Since an early age I've been creating, building and modifying the world in which we live. Raised by some master crafters, I've learned so many skills they all seem to have blended together into a meta-skill. I'm a creative problem solver and a college educated analyzer of businesses and systems. I bring a broad perspective having lived and worked in the most rural settings to the most modern of locals, and I'm at home everywhere I go.

A nice little room refurbishment.

This room is pretty typical of the refurbishment I’ve been doing over the last 5 years or so.  This room had a really old hardwood floor that was damaged, had been painted a bunch of times, and had so many dips a crevaces that is was hard to sweep and keep clean.  We laid down plywood and a commercial tile with as tight a fit as possible around the borders.  The walls of the room were patched and smoothed where necessary, painted throughout.  In this case we also installed a new sink and new windows.

In place of real biographical information (which requires time and effort that has yet to be expended) let me just offer this brief bit. College Educated Academic Type with a Combined Business Major specializing in Analyzing Things. Coupled with an Artistic Earth-Centered Country-Raised Kid with an Expansive-Green-Organic Adulthood while being many things including Heretic Ecentric and Risk-Taker. In there somewhere, you might find some insight into the cognitive being known as Lee Semanek.
