The GC.

We usually sub slabs out, but when slow or killing time we form and set rebar and hire finishers. If a carpenter cant set up a slab correctly, he is fired.

Concrete guy screwing up is almost impossible. I am there on every pour. When they are in a jamb, I help place. If not, I check each trucks consistency, then make sure they dont add water, and run the vibrator.

I dont mind being up at 2- 3 am a few times a year.

You are not busy until the weeks are 8+ days, we just finished our 23 day work week stretch.

been there. I am there now. I haven't had a day off since my wife's grandmother died over a month ago.

that is the way to live life though. I am doing my best to get a point where everybody is working 40 hours a week. I would settle for 60. Lol

No thanks.

I have met paper contractors. ...

Even tried it for a short period of time.

If you are a custom builder/remodeler, in my honest opinion, the builder or a competent supervisor needs to be onsite when critical things are being done.

In custom, everything is critical

I'm there now if I wanted to be,but did that in my 20s to late 30s.
Now it's 45 hours a week, I'm happier, wife happier, family life is happier. Life to short and will pass you by before you know it. Only thing working like that will do is fatten your wallet but then you don't have time to enjoy it

It's not busted, it's suspicious looking activity only witnessed by 2 or 3 reporters on an iPhone video replay. And since then Gawker raised a little over 200k to buy the video...which has disappeared.

Now to throw a monkey wrench into it, Gawker could not legally buy the video as they would have to lie to Canada Customs to get into the country to make the purchase, and even if purchased, the video (which no longer exists) would be confiscated as it is part of, or needed for, a current murder investigation.

Bottom line...if there is a video...it's never coming out, and if it does, someones getting charged and doing time for possession of evidence pertaining to a crime, and the guys who take the cash with be charged with proceeds of crime and loose it all.

So, no one wins...except the mayor.

And before you cut up our mayor, remember Marion Berry, mayor of DC, busted for drugs, lost his mayor job, went to jail, came back, ran for mayor and won. Gotta love this world we live in.
