When the fumes got to my head. But seriously, I have much respect for all tradesmen and have made many friends in all blue collar fields.

Measure twice, cut once and always cut a hair longer than your measurement. Tape measures suck.

Commercial end, not so much. Residential end is getting ridiculous. Townships want to know if you're replacing even a single shingle and want you to get a permit for it.

And they charge you $96 for it. Then the inspector comes out and says oh it's just over the porch, i'll write it us a repair ticket.

thats what I figured. wanted to here it from someone who is actually in the trade though. Is it the general contractors who are hiring the paperless? how do they get away with it? Does ICE fuck up the employer when they use them? does reporting it help?

If you had to build your own house, How long would it take you?

Too many variables to answer that question. How big? Do I cut my own trees or buy lumber? Is there a foundation? Do I have help when needed? And on and on.

What sort of carpenter? Sounds like framing crew to me.

Not trying to sound arrogant, but I've experienced a lot. Did a 4yr apprenticeship. I can read blueprints, layout, survey, light and structural framing, insulation, drywall, drywall finishing, acoustical ceilings, sound panels, drywall ceilings, roofing, siding, stairs, vapor barriers, flashing, concrete forms, cabinetry, crown and base trim, wood flooring, exterior panels, windows, doors, home remodeling and putting together all sorts of crap from China. God has certainly blessed me and my hands.
