Any more pics of that job-looks good so far!
Everytime I see your truck it is 5:05
All that means is that I go home at 5. LOL My guys work late. I think we are going to have a early winter this year so we are pushing hard.
Infact we are stoning the pillars under a tarp today.
that looks awesome i def need to learn how to do that stuff. i think i am going to read as much as i can in the winter then i will go out and see if someone is willing to teach me anything about doing it in the spring.
Or you could just hire someone that already knows how to do it.
that works, i could get a job hire someone to do it with me and then voila i have more knowledge already. I would have to get enough jobs like that to justify havng someone like that hired on full time.
You need to hire guys that are skilled in everything. Pavers, walls, concrete, stone, brick, etc. Top guys can do it all. I don't have a fraction of the hands on experience of some of my guys. But I have a good eye and extensive construction knowledge. Put me and the workers together and you get some nice projects.
Don't try to become a expert at each craft yourself.
Matt, would you mind sharing with the class your construction background / resume?
I agree... the talent of delegating work is the key to extordinary success.
How do you get the electrical in the pillars? Do you have your electrician pre-wire and then you put it up through the conduit when you are building the columns?
Exactly. Working for someone else is just not an option for most of us... and if you can hire someone that knows how to do it... why even learn how to do it... you probably have better things to do anyway.
