Hi guys a quick one,

Eventually I would like to work in new homes, has anyone here moved from remodels into new home supervisor/foreman roles before? If so how did you do it?

Thanks

Grew up in the family home building business, shifted some towards remodeling when the Great Housing Crash occurred. Doing some small repairs and remodels, but trying to stay focused on new builds and additions.

Remodeling is more of a service, as you are working in their home. New construction is more of a product. You will end up working with trades who are good with new construction, but you might not want to send them in someones home. Likewise a guy running crown molding in a new home with no furniture and flooring needs to knock the room out quickly. In remodeling the goal is to get it up without damaging the existing walls, paint, furniture etc.

Hope this helps.
