Yup!:thumbup: I don't know what it is, I'll be driving home from a long hard day just blastin the tunes and thinking god do I love this stuff!

I had this exact same thought this week. Been working on a cabin up in the woods outside of Hood River Oregon, this week building a gorgeous set of CVG Fir stairs. Business partner is also a close friend, and the dog with me. Getting paid great money, building something pretty, sure beats working anywhere else.:thumbsup:

Wait. You are a guy and your name is Laurie?

Sorry just a little confused.
Ya. It is not short for lawrence. I guess I gotta put a pic in my id.
I mentioned this on another thread a while back, but I used "Mac" for a long time to avoid confusion, but then someone came onto CT with a legitimate business with that name, so I quit using it. Now I am at that age where I just don't give a [email protected] - I am who I am :D

where you at winchester? west side? I lived in Kitsilano for 20 years. Coquitlam now :) getting really busy out here- two, three calls a day - mostly small stuff, less than 2k.

I am installing Miles of baseboard and shoe mold this year but not so much crown. Also fixing pocket doors that don't slide, easy fix! $50 each, generally takes less than an hour- unless the wheels have fallen off! LOL then it takes a little bit longer.

4am I gotta get some sleep! got a baseboard job on pitt river road-8am.

Just wasn't sure he was a guy or not.

Now I know. I knew a girl named Ryan a few years ago.

Laurie, I live in Surrey :mad: Try to do most of my work in the Kerrisdale/Point Grey area though. :thumbup:

-Ryan
Cool, long drive though eh? I'm not getting any action advertising in Vancouver proper - gonna drop that next month, $100 a pop in the courier. couple of quotes, that's about it.

Most of the work seems to be port coquitlam, maple ridge, coquitlam, burnaby.

Nothing feels better then driving home with the tunes cranked, a fat envelope in your back pocket, and the ache of a hard day... Well maybe not nothing ;)
