Well Versed Group

I am a former professional home builder (hobbyist now) and current code enforcement officer, and I have to say I love this podcast. I am constantly impressed at how well versed the group is with the building codes and their desire to exceed them. Although I am experienced, i am still a student of the game and I am constantly learning from this group and this magazine. Keep the craft alive!!!
