Hi There From Up North!


Hi from Calgary Canada

I've been scrolling the forum for a while and figured it's time to join.

I've been in construction for about 15 years. Most of my experience is project manager and estimator for commercial general contractor. I also did a bunch of trades through my life. Went to college for civil Eng.

I recently just opened my own business doing a bit everything on the residential side. Decks, finishing, garages...home renos...etc working for yourself is the way to go.

I'm mostly now looking for drawing software so i'll be asking some advice.!


This looks like a nice forum so I figured I join.
