Easy chit. Your basic sub division single story 8ft / 9ft homes. Matchbox homes.

Man I wish we were in a better position to come there. Northeastern Maryland here and we know ONE finisher who pays like you but he keeps his work load low. So close yet so far

I spent seven years in Maryland, that's where I learned to finish. I lived in the Annapolis area. We worked mostly in Ann Arundel, Prince George's and Montgomery Counties. We did both custom and production homes. I moved back to Eastern Ohio in 1994. Living and working in Maryland was a good experience. I learned a lot from very good hangers and finishers but I had to work just about seven days a week just to make ends meet. It's a different world here, there has always been plenty of work, most of the builders are loyal to good tradesmen and you don't have to work your life away to feed your family. We're closer than you think!

Re: Hangers from the Pittsburgh, PA area


I guess finding some young bucks and training them isn't something you'd be interested in?
I haven't seen any young guys coming up the ranks for a long time,,,
it's like they bred the labor gene out of the population.

Re: Hangers from the Pittsburgh, PA area


I don't know any Americans under the age of 33 doing residential drywall. I'm not saying they're not out there; I just don't know them. It's a tough job with little respect (these days). Really, the pay is too low, the job conditions usually suck. I take pride in the fact that I am a drywall finisher. This trade has been very good to me but if I could go back 29 years, l don't know if I would do it again. Too many cutthroats who don't respect themselves or the trade.
