The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

1984 was a warning, not a guidebook!

Came back one time sitting next to the pilot, chop saw buckled in one seat, table saw in one and tool case in another....

Nice change from the norm over there...

Nice work Bob

Flying from NB to work on the Islands was a big time saver, especially when we renovated MV airport terminal.

On nice days, it was amazing looking down at some of the places I have fished, worked and lived. On bad days it was a rough ride, fog was a problem and sometime flights delayed. I remember looking out the window and not seeing the runway....then feeling the tires touch down.

There was a guy I didn't like very much, a real douche bag, and a bully, loved to watch him squirm and sweat when we hit turbulence.
I would tell him "dont worry" " it's over quick if we go down"

Another small kitchen going in....painted cabinets are getting chosen over natural or stained wood more often, white and gray in particular.
Flooring will be prefinished oak with a charcoal stain...natural oak not as popular as it once was too.

House is a raised ranch so all the cabinets had to be carried up a looong flight of stairs first thing yesterday morning.....I was tired after that....but recovered quickly and got these installed before lunchtime.
Blue grey...painted cabinets gaining popularity.
Also trending is the stainless steel hood fan over the cooking range....instead of the combination microwave oven/fan.
We install the ductwork for the fan before sheetrock goes up....it has to be placed accurately....to be dead center with the range.

I might not be doing the stair finishing much longer due to advancing arthritis in my hands....buttoning my pants and tying my shoes is painfull enough....I have a co-worker who is ready to take over the job.

I wish all the departments from your company put as much pride into the quality of their work as you
We are at a house in Westport that BP built 20 yrs ago that is absolute rot disaster. First off they put the hardie plank siding right to the roof on all the dormers instead of a freeze board and didn't treat cut off ends. Also didn't properly step flash. So ends of hardie planks rotted. BP actually came back about 5 hrs ago and cut hardie plank back 2 inches and tucked a piece of flashing under.
Big problem is that the gutters across front of house were angled 1 1/2" in wrong direction away from down spouts. Subsequently for 20 yrs water has been pooling up against the house. Rotted hardie backer. Massive water intrusion behind it all and the sheathing OBS is completely rotted away behind siding.
An unneccasry mess that could have been avoided if had been properly flashed and guys that installed gutters knew how to read a level.

Mike....You are not wrong about any of that. A lot of people told me I wouldn't be happy working for them because of my background...I told them they build a crappy house and only thrived because they own the land tracts....i have helped by improving the interior finish... I am compensated well....and no headaches like when I ran my own business

I owned and operated my own custom home building business for over ten years.
It was a constant struggle.....an 80 hour work week is not unusual... when you have to keep a business running...estimates... job bidding, payroll etc......and a "no days #^&#^&#^&#^& mentality. When you include enough money in the bid to cover every aspect of the job...give the customer good service......pay your employees well....cover all the overhead...insurance....taxes....and more taxes. Lowballers prices will blow you out of the water and customers want you to match the low price or explain why your price is the right one. Getting caught up in the money grab with the government...suppliers...employees...customers...b urned me out.
With this company there is none of that to deal with. Gave me a brand new truck, gas card, cell phone...no headaches...flexible hours...no customers to deal with.......I just do what I do best....finish work.

Did 5" crown in a few rooms in our home. What a pain when you have a cathedral ceiling and strange corners. I got it done but had to use my coping saw on every joint.

No boat, back in the suds.

Working with a new kitchen cabinet supplier/designer. I like the Fabuwood cabinets he sells.... he is also a very skilled cabinet maker....does some really great custom work in his shop.
But the plan he provided was a little sketchy.....maybe the reason one of my co workers missed the hood vent location by three inches.
