We mostly do additions, remodels,
basements, and tons of repair work. We very rarely do houses anyMoore.
My son thought he wanted to do production work until he tried it! So, now we're both content to do the smaller stuff.

Most of the houses, in our area, are done by our "friends" from south of the border (cheaper and faster)!

Started high end real nice quality no touch-ups. But the timeframe and pay don’t allow for that. Lost my ass for too long . Now we smash and burn all tools . Not that you can’t do a nice job with them, I’m just cleaner by hand. Not nearly as fast though.
