finished up relocating 6 basketball hoop structures in a gym, three days so it went pretty well. The worst part was drilling holes with the mag drill 30 feet in the air on a push around man lift. Any movement made it move at least 6″. it was just swinging and swaying. glad to have that job done.
Whoa that sounds like a gnarly job. Glad it went well and you’re on to next one
We also got awarded another job to remove 2 old basketball structures and install of 2 new basketball structures from the same company and 2 more jobs to bid for them.May 24, 2017 at 9:35 pm #629504
Oh man that’s always a bonus! Sounds like that company likes and appreciates your work. Always nice to keep doing jobs for the same companies that trust your work, drop materials/plans off and get the hell out of your way so you can do your thing…total win win for everybody.May 24, 2017 at 9:43 pm #email@example.comModeratorOwatonna, MN - Minnesota

We have done about 10 or 15 installs for them and have at least another half dozen on the schedule. It is a nice addition to the home construction we do.May 24, 2017 at 11:23 pm #629507
Right on: I don’t know about your area but here in Southern California it really seems like construction is booming! Like tons of people are wanting to put money into their houses. I specialize in finish work and doors but will do all general construction to lay the bills but lately I have been able to stick to finish. Sounds like things are reallly steady for you tooMay 25, 2017 at 8:56 am #629571

On the weekend went to scope out a cottage that I plan to rent in August, through a friend of the family.
Little did I know that I would end up helping her Son-In-Law rip out part of the
With only a couple of crow bars and a $4 hammer, we took a good two to three hours ripping it apart.
If there was more time they wanted the rest of the dock gone also.

Ended up with a short day due to the rain, still managed to finish up a bunch of odds and ends. Tomorrow if it’s cleared up we should be able to finish this one completely.May 25, 2017 at 5:11 pm #629616
Holy smokes I had a heck of a day. Had to spend 5 hours under a house installing 2 lvl’s and one tji to support a huge beam that ran through the kitchen above me. The client had some gnarly settling issues going. Took care of it for them no problem!

I went wrap up a 3×3 drywall patch and taped joint I did yesterday. I laid two heavy coats yesterday with hot mud.
Apparently it still had enough moisture to break my bond when I sanded and started to prime.
What a time killer to have it peel and bubble at this point all because I was rushing.
Maybe I need a great volume heat gun. Sucks
