Re: I'm A Girl And Starting A Drywall Company


I'm female, and have been remodeling for about 20 years. I do all the plumbing, electrical, carpentry, cabinet making, drywall, deck building, sewer line repair, WHAT EVER! So what!!! My dad was a builder and was born in Escanaba, in fact my avatar is my grandfather who lived in Escanaba until they moved to Florida about 1915, plowing their field here in the panhandle.

SILLY BOYS, TRUCKS, TOOLS, WHATEVER ARE FOR.....
WHO EVER KNOWS HOW TO USE THEM!!!!

I run into this down here also, very irritating. Jobs got to be done, who cares who it is, as long as it gets done!

Thanks! I've got family up there I haven't seen since my father died in 1975, don't even think I'd recognise them. Yea, there's a lot of bachelors here too! Not many that can handle a woman who knows how to repair something better than they do!

That's disgusting, and the exact reason I won't work for any other contractor with his disgusting guys! My ideal goal would be a crew of women, who were not dressed as sluts, but decent, talented girls. In fact, many of dad's workers had daughters who are very talented.

Re: I'm A Girl And Starting A Drywall Company


guys I am asking nicely. Can You please stop being rude to the female members of this forum. They have as much right to be here as we do. It almost makes me feel ashamed to be a contractor reading some of these responses

There is nothing like laying down after a hard days work, next to your wife and getting a nice-SCRATCH-DOWN-from her gnarley, calloused, cracked, bloody, scabby, dirt under her nails worker hands. It makes me go limp.

I have found that my female employees are more dependable than most of my male employees. And yes, I also think the fellas need to show a little more respect.

That's exactly what she SHOULD be doing. Bring home the bacon,along with the milk, bread, and washing my stinky, crusty drawers that have been sitting in the bottom of the hamper fermenting for a week.
