Hello Everybody From Chicago Suburbs!

Hello fellow contractors. My name is Francisco. After years of lurking around and reading posts after post I decided to finally join in and introduce myself. so a little about me, I have been around the trades most of my life. I have been doing this full time and professionally for the past 8 years. I just started my one man operation last year. So I will be asking a lot of questions, hopefully you guys can help me out.

A few of my favorite "characters" in here are tippytop,(this guys is funny) Rob from TNT Services(man this guys work looks A-1/top notch), California Decks also top notch ad others that I can't remember names at this time.

so, here are a few questions off the top of my head:
Is anybody else from Mexico?
Did you guys have that Knot in the stomach feeling when you first started?
Can you recommend a good source of information about code for electrical, pluming and carpentry?
How many of you are Milwaukee tool fans?

Thank in advance and you guys rock!
