That is one of the better craigslist ads I've seen. He has gone above and beyond to demonstrate his capabilities. Compelling. This is what hardscape consumers look for.

Wowzie, that's alotta pictures! I couldn't even look at them all!

My biggest concern is that he is not licensed. And I know the State of NY requires contractors be licensed.


He musta seen my award winning Craigslist ad!

Makes you wonder why this guy just doesn't do this full time for himself, though. He could make as much off of 2-3 jobs as he does all season working for the man...

I dunno know about all that. He could be on salary and have benefits. He may make more working for "the man" than some of us owners.

Elements of genius. Elements of loser. Kept that herringbone straight through the whole curved walkway, then forgets how to cut border bricks for a curve. Thorough an complete add though

You just never know what one's family is going through. Or what they're living.
