I have on average 5 active jobs with material and ladders on site. Right now I'm more of a delivery driver, I'm constantly unloading tools to deliver materials, reloading tools. Picking up and dropping off things after hours etc.

I realized I often take two days to complete one day jobs. Adding a couple cameras, piping and installing electronic door hardware, hanging speakers...if I had certain things stocked on the truck I could bang the job out without wasting all my time moving tools and materials in and out of my truck.

I own a few Rubbermaid carts that are always living on jobsites because I can't easily transport them from site to site. So many small jobs are be expedited by having a cart on hand.

I rented a Chevy Express for a week and it just wasn't big enough...so I went bigger.

I remember once on here you said you suspected I was a two bit handyman.

Was that a subtle invitation into your guild?

My father always referred to anything of poor quality as "two bit". In conversation on a job site I one said "what do I know I'm just a two bit wire jockey"...speaking in jest. So I went with it....
