@heresjohnnyh you talked about what it takes to get the pretty pics, well this is the less pretty stage. The paneling on the ceiling was an afterthought, so that meant lights had to move, layout had to be figured. But, it’s never a problem, just have to get creative...

@chicintheyellowhardhat helped me install some @rsi_kitchen_n_bath cabinets over the weekend. The customer had a hutch they wanted removed to install these and mount a tv for them. It was a good job for the “chic” to learn on.

Don’t let ig fool you, tile jobs get messy, and yes I used that @ridgidpowertools box as a step stool. Also if you don’t use lasers when tiling you may as well be in the Stone Age.

@centipedetool is my go to worktop for tile, plus I’m sure there are fancier tile saws, but this @ridgidpowertools gets it done for us. What’s your setup look like?? Tag me🙂 maybe I’ll learn something.

Construction: you have jobs like pouring footers, you can control the concrete, the rate it pours and so on... people on the other hand... sometimes subs show up, then customers change their mind. For me give me the job I can control, yes that includes concrete!!

Trades: Are you a specialized person or a wearer of many hats?? What do you say are the pros/cons of each? What advice do you have for those just starting out?
