Welcome! What brought ya to the states? A good buddy of mine is from Liverpool. It cracks me up when people correct his English forcing him to tell them that his people invented the language and WE are the ones speaking improperly.

Do you work for someone or on your own? I know a couple of builders in Edmond that stay pretty busy and are always looking.

To be honest i am awaiting my work authorization (any day now) so am looking at all my options. But it sure would be helpful to have any leads i could follow up on as soon as...
In UK i worked as a subcontractor as opposed to being on payroll but iam ok either way.

You'll figure out that we're all pretty nice here in Oklahoma. Especially in my part of the state.
