    Does anyone do work for a uility comp., military or a state. If so who did you get the work and was it worth the trouble.

    I just had a bid accepted by a local water company. I haven't begun the work, but so far so good. :)

    I landed a DHR building this year. I don't know how I got called really , but I did, I bid, I got. Cut it twice so far and been paid for both. I only hope it works into some more contracts with other state properties.

    I did some for HUD this past spring. I would never do it again. Slow pay and very low per cut. 20% of buz and 80% headache.
