I'm not paid by any company for these reviews, I just like to read before I buy and figure I should pass on what I think to someone who is doing the same.
I worked for a general contractor right after high school. We did all kinds of projects because he didn't like to do the same job over and over. Lucky for me I got my hands on a lot of different tools. We did everything from breaking out and replacing sidewalks to building a timber frame home that wasn't held together with nails or bolts - just dowels. I hung and taped drywall for a few years and have done just about every kind of work on a house except lay carpet or extensive plumbing.
I'm not in construction anymore, but I did do much of the work on our new house.
Good luck with your projects!
