    do more than just mowing, landscaping, and snow? I also do construction, decks, windows, doors, remodels, and property management.

    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.

    I usually do work with a home remodeling company during the winter time. It's definitely relaxing to take on a job that has a slower pace, and less to worry about since that's my time to be a laborer instead of the owner!

    I do woodworking as a hobby so I will sell a few benches to customers or flower pot containers or whatever fits. If I see something that needs to be re done or made I will do it as long as its in my ability. Ive replaces boards and a small portion of a railing on a deck for a client but not a whole deck.

    but mainly I do the following

    -snow/ice removal
    -fall an spring cleanup
    -pressure washing
    -roto tilling
    -gutter cleaning
    -basic irrigation repair
    -basic dirt work
    -stump grinding
    -mailbox instalition
    -fence/deck repair
    -fence/deck stain or seal
    -basic tree trimming
    -bush trimming or removal

    Basicly ile do whatever pays moeny
