I finally found a guy that had taken shop in high school. The most qualified carpenter I have found in 2 months.

Maybe you'll get lucky and get a bunch of snow that will end up sliding off all those solar panels people had installed over the summer

There’s already been some damage that I’ve noticed. We had a storm with about 4” snow and then it rained followed by freezing cold.

Nice heavy block of snow sliding down slamming the front of that gutter. This will be happening every year. I’ll keep better track of total jobs from solar this year.

There are so many houses with solar here. The new system have made no changes. Hoping for one or two of those 20” storms

Is it a coincidence that the old supers name was Tom, and now the new supers name is Tom? I think not. Or maybe I'm just cheap and don't want to buy a new shirts. LOL

Daluth Alaskan Hardware for my personal shirts.

Don't like polos.

Underarmor wicking t shirts for the guys work well also

HBO's Six Feet Under.
I've watched the show for 20 years but never fully watched it start to end . Just random episodes. Finally watched all of it while cleaning the shop.
Best ending to a TV show I've ever seen hands down. I don't think it will ever be beat.

Track saw + diamond blade > wet saw

Especially when it's 8 outside. Luckily the homeowner has a semi heated garage, it's about 50 in there right now

I had purchased this blade about a year ago for a different tile job, but it arrived after I was finished. This is the first time I'm getting to use it

I did this with a smaller mesh type blade. Works great.

Remote starter on the Mrs.' Ram.

As a result, on a day like today, a long list of Hates is totally eliminated.

On her truck anyway, at some point I still have to go out and start and scrape mine.
