Default Greetings from Vermont

Hello All,
My name is Nic, I just started my long awaited painting business here in Burlington VT. I have been painting for a high end residential painter for the better part of 18 years and have finally broken away to start a business of my own.
I have been scouring the internet in order to fine tune my painting education in order to inform myself of products and techniques and also to better answer any and all question that clients will ask and I am so grateful to have came across this forum. Seems like it has everything that I am looking for.

I just landed a monster job right on lake champlain that is a 25,000 sq. ft. home that should take the better park of 3 years, so I look forward to spending a lot of time here asking questions, reading posts and answering your questions as well I assume.
Well, just wanted to check in, great to be here!

Nic Lawrence

welcome and good luck Nic, although a small market, it probably is a good one to be quality orientated.


I bet those vacation homes are a good niche if you can market yourself well.

Welcome Nic. Yeah, I'm the one that posted a semi-smarta$$ comment in your cedar shake thread. It's intended as good natured kidding, something that goes on here from time to time.
