    Hey there! Figured Id take the time to actually do the whole introduction thing since I see so many others do!

    Anyhow, names Alex. lead hand / foreman for residential and commercial construction jobs for the past 6 years. Tend to stay on the framing side of things but I’ve been around the block and done a little bit of ALMOST everything.

    For the first time ever I found myself laid off this winter and decided since I already do everything other then the financial side of business, and already own everything I need (aside from a trailer, do I ever want a trailer lol) why not give it a whirl and go on my own – so here I am!

    Welcome Alex. It’s great to get another Ontarian in here. I think we will be the majority of the board soon.

    Welcome Alex. I am in south west Ontario, but I grew up in the mid-north (Sudbury). How far north are you?

    Welcome, Alex, good to see another Canadian on the forum here. You will find out soon enough that we love to see pictures of your work, so post as many as you like.
    I believe you are the only member from Northern Ontario here now. I lived there for a while and there is another member originally from Sudbury. You will get to know them all soon enough.
    Good luck on your trailer search, You shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a good one.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I actually am in Sudbury.

    Ive got hundreds of pictures of my work but seeing as everything unique and interesting is work that I’ve done for my previous employer, it just doesn’t seem right to claim it as my own regardless if I did it haha

    I’ll make sure to start snapping more though, should be a few good contracts coming up if all goes well!

    Welcome to BTP Alex. I used to go by Sudbury when I went on vacation.
    Hope you do well with going on your own. Sometimes it can be a challenge.
