Re: Working From 6am To 1pm In Hot Weather?


I may not be saying I wish I'd of built one more project on my death bed but I bet I don't regret any I did build. Better to do it now than later.

I have taken most Fridays off since November to work on my house and usually get to the house to work on it about 530 everyday, hoping I keep the schedule about the same after I finish and not get greedy. Still working a ton of hours but only 35-45 on paying work. If I hadn't worked a ton of hours before I wouldn't be able to afford the house, rentals or my kids educations without my wife having to work her ass off too.

6 to 1 is awesome no matter what the weather.

Start early leave early is the jam. I don't get it a lot on residential, but every now and again you'll get a customer who tries to time the work with their vacation so you have the run of the place. Start early leave early, or better yet, start early stay late, then ultimately leave a full day early.

6-1 would be sweet. Get on the boat and start fishing by 230.... during the spring anyway, too hot to fish at 230 in the summer

Back down to 80F now, so I'll do a little more work this evening. Last week was 55F or colder and rainy...
