I do custom cabinets,stairs and finish carpentry in general. I was working with a contractor for the last 5 years as a sub. Nearly cut out mowing and landscaping completely. Im a very good carpenter but I still like cutting grass better. LOL, The ROI is maybe the other way around but I used to watch the guys cut grass out the windows.
I was just telling someone the other day if I could have one good sized deck or cabinet job a week (or month depending on size) I would be very happy. Building is down big time around here and the low ballers run a muck as well.
Heres a few pics of the last deck I did.
