Get in there and get it done asap with an eye for detail... a reputation can develop quickly among GC's from such an opportunity...

Sweet!

This is a win for ALL of us who ever wished we could get something like this only to be beat out by someone else who ultimately screws up the job and makes it harder for the rest of us to land such a deal.

The bigger the house the bigger the fvckups, in a few months you will be crying for 3x 2500 sqare footers instead.

I worked on a few over 10K...got a 12K one right now and the quantity of wires looks like a rack room at Nortel.

Houses like that, they have 1k S/F closets. Kitchens big enough to serve 200 people out of and have more bathrooms then a rock concert has honeybuckets

Re: 6500 Sq Ft Residential Job!


yeah i lucked out with this one. Ive been working but until this job i wasnt booked very far out. Pretty much just 1 or 2 small jobs ahead. A lot of the jobs of been landing this year are very small. But as long as im working guess i cant complain too much. Tomarrows big project. 10 sheets of drywall, hang and finish, LOL i hope i can handle it.

Those 10 sheeters are what keeps me going. And then I dream of bigger jobs.

Then I get a bigger job and dream of smaller ones.

more proof that big house constructin is still going on.

ive framed a few. also did a major addition to a house that was 1500 sq ft and turned it into a 6000 sq ft frame to finish. fun job but took 7 or 8 months and went way over budget
