* jb (the journeyman) I began blogging to spread the word about a new business, also called Building Moxie. But as I got into the groove, I began to write more about the interconnectivy of things, the fundamental reasons for, and the related challenges with performing home projects.
I am reminded frequently that “It” often isn’t as easy as following a how-to recipe! But . . . I do believe that anyone can do, and that the best way to learn to do . . . is to do. Join us here as we stream through home projects, business, life and learning.
One such whim for me was moving into a dilapidated, century-old schoolhouse in my early twenties. Without this house, where I still live, I most probably would not have become a carpenter, and, later, would not have associated with this blog.

Through her design practice she offers full-service interior design and also e-decorating and design services for do-it-yourselfers. She’s been practicing interior design for residences, offices, yachts, hotels and restaurants for way longer than she’d like to admit.

* John Douglas Poole (The Technician) John Poole is a computer scientist and technologist. His mysterious Second Life, however, is almost singularly driven by an all-consuming passion for carpentry, woodworking, timber framing, and the restoration/renovation of old colonial homes, of which he currently has two ongoing projects. In his copious spare time, John enjoys rowing, skiing, sailing, reading, and sometimes even a little gardening.
* Sean Lintow, Sr. (The Auditor) Sean Lintow Sr. has over 20 years in the trades and is the owner of SLS Construction which primarily focuses on remodeling. He founded the company in 2006 shortly after moving from Arizona to Alabama. As an individual who not only strives to be the best, but to help others do the same, he started a blog entitled the Homeowners & Trades Resource Center (HTRC).
Two years ago in an effort to help other builders (and to save his back), he became a certified RESNET Rater, CEA, LEVEL 2 Infrared Thermographer, and started a new division called AlaGBS or Alabama Green Building Solutions. As he states, we provide solutions not sales pitches, for everyone from DIYers to Industrial Customers. We offer Certified Energy Audits & Ratings / Infrared Thermography Scans / Code Compliance & Program Testing / Modeling / ENERGY STAR Verification / Consultations and Training.
