I like the handyman type work when things are slow. Income and doing something different both are positives.

Going up to about 55F this afternoon. Gonna put up some birdhouses that I built for my wife. Should last a while--painted with Duration

I heard that bird poop dissolves that DUUU ration paint.

Spraying some cabinet doors and drawer fronts.

In between coats, I'm practicing up on how to properly set a table.

RH,

Everybody had to take Home Ec when I was in 8th grade. I haven't seen that diagram since maybe 1981.

Suited up and ripped out some water damage today. Only had today scheduled to rip out and replace the slat boards. Things went well and we were able to put up the rock and get the base coat on. Also started repairing a few other water damaged areas in the church as well.

Made a supplies run at lunch and stopped into SW. Long time employee in there was telling me about giving my # to probably the best custom home builder in the area. This guy builds beautiful homes and has a stellar reputation with his subs. While she's explaining her referral to me, in walks said builder. He gave me an on the spot interview and told me to stop by one of his job sites tomorrow.

I've took a couple a$$ kickings lately, I'll gladly welcome a good day like today!

I was working on how to get pics on paint talk. I did manage to upload a few pics on my facebook page. Still a work in progress.

Couldn't sleep so I was on site by 5:45 this morning, starting a small NC today. The guys showed up at 8:00 with everything there and ready to rock. I took off to meet up with the new potential GC. It went better then expected, before we even talked numbers he says "for the quality were providing, I expect my subs to make a very good profit". Sending his bid Friday.

Stopped by the church on the way back and put on another coat of mud. Popped into the NC with the camera ready. Busted them getting after it 👍

Why is the bucket turned so you can't see what you are using? Are you ashamed or something? (Ba-zinga!)

Nice thermos though.

It was purely coincidental, but it did hide the fact that it was the much hated pva.

Gotta have the thermos onsite. The coffee keeps em rolling all day long 👍

I wasn't badgering you! I just said pva wasn't necessary anymore. If you like using it, no problems from me. I just wish I could sell it to you.

Although most of my jobs don't require me using PVA sealer, most of the painting contractors I've talked to recently, use it for large, newly installed drywall. I figured PT was the only place where painters didn't use it. Now I come to find out one of PT's most respected painter uses it!

As far as I'm concerned, I've been vindicated. Too bad Drake couldn't be here to witness this. I think LPC went into hiding. And you PAC, will always be my favorite contrarian.

On a big job there could be a benefit in using it as it would ensure everything is sealed the same, which would alleviate a lot of potential variables in the drywall. Just don't know if the labor involved is worth the extra expense. But I guess that is between you and your client. Or your bank account. But if it feels good, do it.

Apparently, It's working great for several successful painting contractors I know, including our esteemed PT collegue, MIZZOU.

I'm actually glad that PVA is still being used legitimately. I was under the impression that using PVA was acting in a fraudulent manner, according to some members here...or were here.

The only thing fraudulent about PVA is the number of retailers and salespeople that sell it instead of actual drywall primer because of the price difference. And the incredible mark-up they get on it. But selling cheap is pretty much the way the business is going these days. Oh, cheap but with an incredible mark-up.
