Worst job ever.


Earlier this week I started the worst job ever. The owner of this 3+ million dollar house is the owner of a lumbar mill. Therefore, it is exposed post & beam everywhere. 30+ foot scaffold work in tight area's, probably around 4000ft of Tare-Away (no jokes)... pictures to follow. You have no idea... even every single closet has tare-away in it. nightmares. all hourly, lame.

Re: Worst job ever.


Sounds like it is a good thing it is all hourly.
How is it going to look overall. I have seen some guys like that go so overboard it just looks retarded and I have seen some that will atleast look good when all the bs is done.
