This Construction Life is the story of an Irishman born into the world of construction, living on the edge and making lemonade when things go wrong! The experiences and adventures of a lifetime spent in the building industry in Ireland, London and Poland - the great, the bold, the fearless, the brazen and the despicable - based on true events in a life lived to the full. Characters and comedy, scuffles and scrapes, the highs and lows of life in an hourglass - an insight into things that ordinary people don't see and the lessons learned along the way.
Greg Rossel grew up cruising the waters of New York Harbor and spending time in the boatyards on the south shore of Staten Island where economics (more than anything else) made wooden boats the craft of choice. He makes his home in Maine where he specializes in the construction and repair of small wooden boats, as well as writing for several publications. Greg has been an instructor at WoodenBoat School in Maine since the mid-1980's, teaching lofting, skiff building, and the "Fundamentals of Boatbuilding".
