If you want rock-solid tips from a person who's actually done building and remodeling with his OWN HANDS to support his family, you're at the right place.

Ask the Builder started as a syndicated newspaper column in October, 1993 a few months after Tim was named one of the Big 50 Remodelers by Remodeling magazine.

The Ask the Builder column still appears each week in about sixty newspapers nationwide.

Prior to 1993, Tim spent decades in the field working for paying customers each day satisfying their demands for high-quality workmanship.
