Default What the heck !

I know I haven't been on in a while. We moved back to SC and I'm spending a lot of time "correcting" the builders mistakes.

I guess it was longer than I though since I got booted from the forum. My password would no longer work. So I'm still breathing and looking at others posts but everything I an into right now is mundane so I haven't posted anything. I'll try to do better as time permits.

Hope the move went smoothly. South Carolina has some really pretty country.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Have moved a few times across different parts of Queensland and it’s an awful job.

Welcome back Gary. Love new locations and a change of scenery but hate the moving process.

As for new construction, I was at my new house site every day while it was being built and have to say it saved us a ton of headaches. Decisions were made on the spot, improvements were discussed and implemented, and no shortcuts taken. I had an excellent builder and he didn't require that close observation but as the crew quickly discovered it was a good thing for them as well and we got along very well without a hitch. I was the general contractor and the company I had worked for was doing all the mechanicals (HVAC, electrical, and plumbing). I was also able to do a photographic documentation of all of the work. I know where every pipe, wire, and stud is located. May seem excessive but I had just had knee surgery and this kept my mind off of other issues. In fact while the house was under construction a friend of mine and I were busy building the roll off roof observatory for my "other" hobby.

I had a contractor tell me that is the reason he didn't do remodeling of any kind.
Welcome back. Where in SC? Has the best of everything- beaches, plateau and the mountains.

Gary the major password change was a couple of years ago now. It hasn't been that long has it? If it was since then yours should have worked.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Gary, I feel your pain... Just moved from California to Ohio about 4 months ago. Had renovations done on the new house before moving, and had to fly twice to do QA - still lots of mistakes and sloppy work. I wish I could be there every day - would have saved a lot of "Can I show you something, dear?" from my wife...

Now I have to set up my shop. It's fun, but so time consuming! haven't built anything in a few months and itching to go... And I still have a daytime job to hold so I can pay for all this...

One year of experience repeated 10 times is not 10 years of experience.

The taxes aren't very pretty. But as a native of SC I knew that before I let the kids & the wife convince me to come back. lol

I have the skills to build my own but at my age that is just not very practical, so I'll just be content to repair & replace.
