    Did you really "WIN" or were you the low priced sucker of the year? Typically the bigger jobs are less profitable and have a "too much in one basket" syndrome that kills you if you lose it unexpectedly.

    Wow, automatic bashing on winning the bid on a big job. Congrats man, I don't care how much your charging as long as it's profitable for you.

    My biggest job is an office complex I will be doing this year for the first time. Not sure on acreage, though. It's kinda hard to tell because it's like 30 postage stamps. This will make my third commercial property.

    If all you are going to do is judge, I suggest you don't reply to threads like these. In other words, stay the hell out.

    There was a huge thread a couple weeks ago about a guys brother who bid a bunch of acreage at 10 bucks per. The views were all over the board. Some actually showed they could make money at that rate. Didn't mean to sound like bashing. Congrats, I stick to tight congested areas with about 10 feet between houses.
