To Build a Home: Relfections on Construction is the story of one person’s odyssey of building a home for his family. In that regard, it is a tale as individual and distinct as the home’s design. Yet in other respects, it is as universal and timeless as the notion of home. As the son of a carpenter, the author grew up in a house his father built over sixty years ago. So his journey into the world of construction is accompanied by memories of his boyhood home and the man who built it. The twelve reflections cover a range of topics – from the property search to energy efficiency, from tools of the trade to a sense of place, and much more. Timothy P. Lynch is a professor of history at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio. He has won awards for his teaching, and has published extensively in the areas of American labor history and protest music, including Strike Songs of the Depression.
