Mike Holmes? He seems to be a di** on the jobsite but he also appears (at least TV portrays him) to really know everything he's talking about. Is he the ultimate contractor or the beneficiary of a huge tv deal budget that allows him to throw all kinds of money at homeowner's problems. Also, who in the hell screws their studs into plates? Canadian guys open up. I'm on the fence about Mike so we'll do this democratically and I'll let the professionals make my decision for me.
