I'd still put everything away every night. I do primarily interior work where my tools are secure in a home. If I'm building out a basement and the tools will not be a bother to anyone I still put them all away and clean up every night. I find it makes the next mornings start better.

I'm looking forward to see what you come up with for your storage solutions.

My work situation is a little bit different currently so I'm adapting to make life easier. I decided against the dump trailer as there's no way I could ever make it pay for its self. Keeping the trailer as a material storage handling trailer and the van will be main vehicle.

The 4x4 is a big deal beaker for me too but I'm keeping my truck so snow days are not an issue.

If I can talk the wife into letting me have another new vehicle then I will definitely post updates.

You have it made.

Here with few exceptions everything goes back in the truck or trailer. Some days I kill an hour unloading and setting up and then another hour tearing back down. Otherwise there is a really good chance it won't be there in the morning.

Don't get me wrong I leave and my guys at night and they tidy up, but don't roll up. I can't stand a messy jobsite.

Not really changing direction. Still doing my normal stuff but been handed a bunch of work I wouldn't normally bid on but this guy heard about my work and had to have me as a sub. Not sure of direction it's going yet so I'm keeping the trailer but the van is a much better setup for me under his style of work and I may end up as a long term commitment.

Being sub definitely can have benefits of its the right gig. It's been great for me this summer. 3-4 months of work getting my top hourly rate. Just show up, work, go home, do it again. It's been nice.

Yeah your not wrong and the stress is far less and I currently have a back log of my own jobs of customers who have no issue holding out for me. It's all very high end work too which is hard to get into in this part of town im working in.

Hi mgb, is it the Omer 12.40 or 12.50 ?

I'm suspecting it would be the 12.50 though...

Many thanks
