Joe Truini was born into the home improvement business as the son of a remodeling contractor. He began working alongside his father at the age of 12 and went on to make his living in the field after getting an education.

As a union carpenter, Joe worked on large commercial projects, including the cancer research center at Yale-New Haven Hospital and the only PEZ factory in the U.S. He also spent time as a residential remodeling contractor, and four years as a custom cabinetmaker in Miami, FL. Joe has written for a number of national publications including This Old House, Popular Mechanics, Woman’s Day, and Today’s Homeowner magazines.

He is also written three books, including two editions of Building a Shed, a best-selling book published by The Taunton Press. Joe continues today as a freelance writer for several magazines, books and websites.

A native of Connecticut, Joe, his wife and two children live in rural Litchfield County. When spare time allows, Joe goes hiking, traveling, and baseball.
