Green Handyman Services


hello to all my brothers and sisters, i am a new contractor but not new at the game. I have been a carpenter (and a few other things) for the last 7 years. I come from a long line of carpenters and sparky's, uncle 1 is a union carpenter for the last 100 years, uncle 2 is a electrical inspector for the city of Seattle, uncle 3 is a super. for some big ass construction company. their father (my grandfather) was a union carpenter who came from England. over the years i have had the fortune to work with some great guys who took the time to teach me the right way to get stuff done. "do you want it done or done right?" I hope to be able to pick your brains once and a while.

Man, what is he eating or drinking that has allowed him to work for so long? I thought the unions were into retirement - what need 101 years?

Welcome, GH! I'm at this for over 35 years and learn a lot of good stuff from you younger guys, too! If we can't learn new tricks, then I guess we're old dogs for sure!!
