I have been trying to come up with some ideas for winter work to keep both myself and any employees busy. We don't get enough snow for plowing to be a great revenue maker. I mean it is good money but you spend all winter sitting on you butt waiting for snow. I have one idea tell me what you think. I am thinking that since property around there is so cheap (you can get small lots for under $5,000) I am thinking about buying a couple of these smaller lots that are heavily wooded. I'm thinking that I will go in and clear building lots. Take any good timber off the property to sell for lumber then selectivly cut the rest for Firewood. Then maybe clear the stumps, put in a driveway, and leave a nice pretty lot. As long as the Timber and Firewood cover my labor cost it would be worth it to not loose any good employees over the winter. Keeping an employee or two working will make it so that they will be available to plow and do doorhangers. I am also thinking that this may be something that we could do on rain days durring the summer months to keep the guys busy. Then I'll get my profit on the flip side when the lot sells. That do you think?
