Re: Requirments For Black Belt In Framing


A good work ethic and a respect for your co-workers and tools.
The ability to think on the go.
The ability to read and follow blueprints.
One thing I like about being a builder is that no matter how many times you do something it's always a little different. Never a dull moment!

I stood at the edge of a 43 story building. It wasn't that scary till my partner reminded me I didn't have my retractable hooked.

We installed those ice melting nets on a hotel here in dayton. Only 20 stories or so but when your hanging over the edge and the wind is blowing thats enough for me. I realized that day I am scared of heights.

I hate heights. Sometimes my need for money outweighs my fear, but I hate height. I was in a boom lift about 35-40 feet, me and two other guys. The lift is rated at 500 lbs. We had close to 700. I was scared to death. I was with two fearless iron workers. I should've known better. It was all I could do to keep from looking like a total beeeatch. To top it off, we got stuck up in the air, we had to call inside for someone to come out and work the controls on the ground to get us down. Only took a few minutes, but it took 10 yrs off my life - seriously.

200' in the air is NOT scared of heights. You're just sane.
