Default Hello from Indiana

Hoz here, Started painting (for money) in 1973. Served apprenticeship in a union shop. Spent 15 years in the union painting everything from structural steel to millionaires homes. Hung wallcovering my last 5 years.

Quit the union in '85 and started painting/hanging for myself. Just got tired of the rat race.

I'm mostly retired now, but still like talking the trade.

Cool. If I recall correctly Carmel was a very nice neighborhood. Big dollar homes for the most part.
