About Brian

Brian Pedersen writes about all kinds of issues related to construction. Though not a construction worker by trade, he loves to see how things are built and is fascinated by the art of digging in the dirt. Often you find him tromping through the dirt at sites for multi-story hospitals to baby-sized barns. He should have a hard hat with his name permanently etched on the back and a list of all the sites he´s visited and stories he´s written about them. But his head is just not that darn big.
