    Hey just curious as to what job you have done that you made the most money on and the one you lost your shirt on and how bad.

    I had a residential install that took two days by myself. Cleared almost $4000 when all was finished.payup

    I've never really had anything major that hurt me too bad.:) (yet)

    My absolute best netted me $30,000.
    My absolute worst landed me in prison.

    Well, you asked.

    The best netted me $21,000.00 after three and a half weeks.
    I put in 14 days on that job, my crew the remainder.
    The worst cost me almost $8,000.00 in anticipated profit - I still broke even but oh boy was that POA a real ***** to work for.
    The worst one was during my first year here in Texas and I had a crash course in problematic customers.
    As it turned out their attorney was better than mine - live and learn.
