Col's Construction Blog

Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Col. I live in Perth and I have a passion for construction. I am pretty useless when it comes to construction work so I tend to leave it to the experts.

During these conversations, I have learnt so pretty interesting things which I will be exploring on this blog. Enjoy!
