typical homeowner

get a call from a lady to price up building a small kneewall/planter, said she bought all the block at an auction and got a "great deal"

turns out - all two pallets are corner blocks and all mixmatched different colors

not sure who is dumber, the homeowner or the block supplier for selling it.

her last words to me were "I want you to make this look REALLY nice"


great deal huh?

happy spring

The homeowner, the block supplier was smart enough to get rid of his leftovers.

Give her a price to haul and dump them lol.
I got one today who is a contractor. He has "a hookup" for material and wants a labor price. Very excited for this

Yeah & she's probably thinks the labor shouldn't be more than $100
