This job was in amherst. The dead plant list I just received is massive. And even better, I billed 800 + tax for the additional trim work and they paid $950 + tax because they said it was worth more than what I was asking. These are the days Im glad im in this business lol. I have another commercial place I do the maintenance and mowing at off sheridan drive. I wish I could plow the place too but its just risky considering the distance from me to there. I almost had a guy set up to do it for me who lived nearby but he got wishy washy last second and i had to put the brakes on before he ended up screwing me. So the plow contract went to another company.

But yea im still MOSTLY in west seneca/cheek and i dabble quite often in elma as well. I did a couple installs in hamburg too now that i think about it.

I been banging out residential jobs left and right. I work on the dump after work until dark. I finally got it to where its presentable. Still got some things to do before I put it on the road but Im pretty pleased with it and looking forward to stickering up my first dedicated work truck. For those who dont know or remember what it looked like when I bought it heres some before pics. The makeover was very inexpensive, just took some elbow grease and a couple trips to the auto store for materials.

yea im leaving it this gray. i know its a little boring but i wanted to hide the bodywork i did with a color that i felt would do that. it was a last second thing to pick this color. I think when it was in gray primer it started to grow on me or something.
