Being the boss means getting the jobs, getting the stuff, and doing the jobs. Went to the brick yard yesterday which is a distance away and loaded up for my current project. Of course it down poured on the way home and none of my stuff was covered. I got home quick enough to keep everything dry. Mortar doesn’t like rain. I am cutting a lot of these bricks at home because it is so messy. I would rather make a mess in my yard than a client’s. The old Milwaukee grinder is toast so I switched to Bosch, nice tool so far.
I am officially licensed in the state of Washington to be a specialty contractor. The specialty in my case being masonry. I have met some nice people during this process and it was pretty easy to do. So I am licensed and bonded, time to get to work!
