Early snow also means it’s “Snow sliding down solar panels and destroying the gutter season” has started .

We set a couple pre-fab equipment shelters today. Had to get a couple tractor trailers and a crane up thru some narrow city streets to get to site.

There was a big wrecker sitting on call. It was needed to slide the trailers around some turns.

Once we finally got the building there, we rigged it and set in place.

There was nowhere to turn around, and no way the driver was backing out so we spun the trailer with the crane

Building set, tractor trailer gone.

We had to bring in building #2 and stick it on top of building #1.

Building #2 set, trailer spun around and we were left to install some conduit and electrical enclosures in the cold December rain.

Will be back Monday to anchor it down and bond to our grounding grid.

Well, work is over. My wife was sending me texts all day asking if I was gonna make it to the Andy Warhol museum in town.

My daughter was selected to intern there this year. They have some kind of party happening tonight.

I didn't have time to go home and change so, I showed up early in my dirty work gear to drink some gin with lime.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


Did a door redo on a kitchen about 10 years ago. Doors, drawer fronts, reskinned the exposed sides of the cabinets and made the cabinets to the right of the refrigerators.

She wanted the job on the cheap so I ordered the doors, they were shaker style. Of course everything looked nice in the beginning. But after 5-7 years the stile/rail joints started to split because they don't glue the shoulders. She planned on moving out within 5 years and she's still there. Now she has seen the doors I put in my previous kitchen and she really liked them. So new doors, drawer fronts, melamine drawers with soft close slides and a pull out trash.

The doors/drw fts are assembled and 12 out of 31 pcs have their first sanding. I've got the primer and paint but will wait for a couple days while the water from the glue migrates out of the joints so I don't get a line there from cell shrinkage in the wood.

Darren how many times in one winter season do you think the same person will call out for the same problem?

Or should I say have you had repeat clients for the same issue

Haven’t had any repeat customers yet. Most, if not all, opt for the gutter cover I sell to help the snow slide right over the gutter. I tell them if they just want the gutter replaced without the cover that it will most likely just be a donation to my business. Easy sell.
