Re: Kicked Out Of Framing Job For A While, Loooong While


I think back to the era of my dad being in biz, to when I took off on my own in 80's.

I fought a lot of low bids, because my work was buried, and they couldn't see it. They'd rather stick that money in things they could see, like carpets, drapes, and landscaping.

At my age, I'd like to put my money on the framer, to build things properly that are covered up, can't see, understand.

Even my inexperienced eye, will find/catch faults in the finish.

I can catch some burps in finish, but have no clue as to if it were framed properly.

Re: Kicked Out Of Framing Job For A While, Loooong While


Thinking little dipper in situation my position at market is build thanks to my well rounded skills framing-trim. As I wrote before I tried to expand to cabinetmaking but didn't like or failed whatsoever you want to call it. Now 2/3 of my skills are gone. I said before I want to expand to realty and realtor licence. But I planned to do it standing at my well rounded and market approved skills not at a remain of my skills. Well will see how it will work. Now add is install doors, crown and trim stairs. What customers can think about it. Can start advertising I do casing of doors but not of windows.

If you follow the link I posted earlier, you'd see that trade work is very finely divided in MN.

And you can do only one trade. More than one requires licensing.

I gotta ask Tipi:

Why the different rates?
I get called routinely too do difficult part of job and rest done by someone else. More then 1/2 of calls are such. If I do all job I charge lower.

From some reason everyone who saw it live was staring in it with most stupid face imaginable for a couple minutes. TBH all what I did is level floor to given reference point with 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 playwood and I do not see nothing special in it. I do not know why is so damaging to brain of rest of planet.

If you charged a more normal rate, would you still get the difficult parts of those jobs?

Don't try to present a concept like "industry standards" I don't believe he is aware that such a thing exists and moreover, judging from his posts he might have difficulty spelling it.

He should go into real estate....Sunday afternoon open house would be perfect for him

Tipi - If you don't mind me asking, I'm curious how you ended up in Minnesota. I just can't picture myself living in Croatia and saying to myself "I think that I'll move to Minnesota"

Well that is valid then. I did that because some manager from company that install and sell it, some big national company, said so to do. Concrete guy show up and destroy my work and did his and than installer, not manager of that big company show up and said that my playwood was ok but not necessery as he can go with mass to 1 1/2". Other guy said I do not know what "industry standard" mean and I think it is unhinged as I just finished that big project all alone.
I come here because here is better money and in 97. Croatia wasn't part of EU. It do not make any sense for me to go to Germany etc at my age and learn theirs techniks in building houses.

Well my portfolio is well represented here. If you think it is crap is up to you. I think it is very good stuff and customers think too. I offer a dose times here to call Hans Hagen homes to see if I did that roof at town house with irregular hips an cathedral ceiling. And went to every new crew to explain how it should be done as it is done over 20 times. It do not worth any more as that company is sold. But you can call Chris Jordan from Choice wood that is still always there, coowner of company and ask what he think about Zell. I offer here countless time that someone show up at that big project in St Paul. Feel free to think what you want, market show where is my place and if my skills are good.
I do understand where you come from and I remember time when it was who can talk better about his skills. Today is time of internet and portfolios speaks. Sou you and alike can call me hack how much you want my portfolio will stand there. Unless MN DoLaI find reason to shut it down too.
I notice here a lot time I want go in real estate like a step to development.
