That FIUFL guy is a real piece of work. I bet he's Craigslist GC
His stairs are a few treads short of the top.

Re: In Case You Didn't Know...

I just glanced over that dingdong's post.So his idea is to have contractors from other states bid jobs in other states?(Does that make sense?)
With the exception of a few states having reciprocal agreements most contractors can only contract in the state they are licensed in.
in texas with framing and cornish people will do it for 3.00 a foot. What do yall think about that? Just laber

That way he can get someone from arkansas to frame, someone from virginia to do drywall etc.. you know to keep costs down.

What a load. I have been a contractor for 35 years and have done work in different states. The poster recommending this baloney is just looking for an exchange, a little diversion. I don't have fear of change, indeed I welcome it especially when it improves systems that need improving.
There is so much speculation on our business that this would be better debated in a vocal forum. But regardless, blanket statements always arouse the uninformed to issue comments based on guesses and bar talk. Dude, have another drink and go play with your Bob the Builder tool box.
Oh, and my qualifications, how about 4 certifications from National Groups plus over 35 years building commercial and residential.
