  1. Good Morning,
    I live in an 1840’s revival located on the south shore in Massachusetts. The 4 front columns are 2 Stories high and are in desperate need of attention. Anyone that you would suggest I reach out to? It seems that many of our local carpenters are very busy and are not interested in this project at this time. The front porch needs work as well. Should I have a structural engineer access?
    Thank you!

  2. Hello I am a graduate student doing research on craft learning. I saw an interview online where you described internet video apprenticing in Flashmeeting some years ago. Are you still doing this kind of instruction? If so, how much? If not, can you say why you are no longer doing it? Thanks!!!
