What Story is Your Favorite?

So, I published my first book, Three Men and a Barrel, on Amazon a week ago. This book is the culmination of over 15 years of work. At age 19, I told the men I worked with that one day I would write a memoir about my time as a shed builder and title it Three Men and a Barrel. Why, you ask? Well, obviously you haven’t read the book!

I began writing a column for our industry’s bi-monthly magazine, Shed Builder Magazine, over four years ago. At first, it was just a funny story I wanted to share. Then, it became a fixture in every issue. For the past couple years it has been seen on the last page of the publication. I’m blessed to work with Matt Poe and the team at Shed Builder Mag. They have allowed me an avenue to release all those stories over the years.

I decided about a year ago to compile those stories into my “memoir”. I hope these stories bring a smile to your face, but more importantly, I hope they help every reader to look for joy and meaning in your everyday work. This is not a story of an exciting superhero that you’ll never be. You can find humor and inspiration every day – if you look in the right place!

I’d love to hear from you! If you enjoyed one of the stories, leave a comment and let me know!

    Its hard for me to pick my favorite story. I really liked the ones about “Help a hoot”, “Board stretcher”, “Oppsie group text message” and “Black cat bathroom tale”. This reminds me of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Love your stories.
