Hey everyone, my name is Clark. I've been doing construction type work for about 4 years now. I started forming and framing houses right after graduating from high school. 6 months later I got laid off for the winter. The next spring I got a job helping a subcontractor build decks and fences. 6 months after that he changed careers so I bought my own tools and took his place. I've been building decks and fences for about 3 years now and just recently, after being inspired from this forum, took the next step to register my own business. I'm going to school this fall for mechanical engineering so I'm not planning on growing this business like crazy any time soon, but just wanted to be able to legally do jobs for friends and family as they pop up, instead of passing them on.
