So, does making sawdust qualify as Ďbuildingí? Walnut, Cumaru, Pecan, Honduran Mahogany, Aromatic Cedar, and Magnolia...

Hopefully the end result will look better - a jewelry box pour La Femme.

Brandon, that proverbial brick wall of which you speak is out there for me someday- every sh!ty client, subcontractor in crisis or employee that's gone lazy pushes me a little closer.

I suppose I could just walk away, become a Walmart greeter and take showers at the Y.

We installed 12 foot barn doors on this house I just built- not sure why?

I'm guessing a designer was involved?
where did those doors come from?
solid or veneer?

Homeowner- people are hell bent on having barn doors.

Doors are laminated mixed species core with a 1/2" veneer.

Yup, barn doors are the current "cool" thing. Neighbor has them, but doesn't have any cows?

Yes,the barn doors are all the rage,trouble is they are not legal egress over here.

Done got busted twice now.

I tell homeowners ,you can put them in ,after the CEO and I are gone.


Edit:Good Luck Brandon, I went back to school and I am still there, I find it pretty hard to walk away and I am hardly into any of it ,anymore. Yet I continue .

Contractor is that the liquor cabinet/bar behind the barn doors?
With that big window above, I was expecting them to be a privacy/light blocker in front of glass doors going to a patio or something.

All that effort and money to hide a 12"x 14" receiver and cable box. That thing could house a small brothel in Guatemala.

If getting paid to build something you client wants, leads to you laughing at them while posting pictures of their private home, why bother ?

Habitat for Humanity is still in business. Assuage you paycheque by breaking you back and ass as a volunteer home builder. You might get to shake hands with Jimmy Carter.

Jimmy Carter is probably the only man standing tall when it involves criticizing the good works of a former POTUS.

Jim..I don't think Contractor was poking fun at his clients but he went too far about the virgin Mary...

Money you make off of knuckleheads with more money than cents (pun intended) still buys you bolts, biners, buds, and beer.
Why not fleece the stupid and wealthy?
Your time is valuable, and yours to do with what you choose.
Moral equivalence of taking money from chubby shufflers that donít understand the concept of the house odds at a casino.

Hey Majid_S thats pretty cool building a computer. When I was a teen a friends brother was a computer engineering student (1989?) and had to build one. He inspired me to take some computer science but ended up just playing "Oregon Trail" on a floppy for the semester.

Anyway.

Cheers!!!! S...

Hey Jim , I have built 14 homes for HFH,it is a great organization.
Most for veterans.
And , I and my crew were paid for our time on most of them.
You are aware of a handsome tax break for your work.

Fortunately, my clients have thicker skin than you.

On that note- Jimmy Carter is a hero of mine but he wears his tool belt backwards and frames with a 16 oz finish hammer.
