Looks like a good time there Ben. And sounds like you also got a good woman, I'd keep her around.

Having a family member have an award made to give to you - $65.00.
Posting pictures of it on your overdue intro - priceless.

JK Ben, it's good to have you here. Sounds like your wife's a keeper.

Can anyone tell me what to price this job I need to bid. The walls are 8 or 9 feet tall. I would say its around 2000-3000 square feet. Some of it is exterior and some of it is in Canada. Not sure how much of each, sorry.

$1242.73, but it will take you $1678 to do it; however some of that is in Canadian $. G.C. said you are third anyway.

Welcome Ben!

Ben,
I have been in the trade for 36 years and will celebrate when I retire. I always hated my choice of occupation as a house painter, but now when I look back over the years I realise its been quite a rewarding and prosperous trade for me.

Welcome Ben!
I guess I can just schedule you in with the rest of the jobs I get.
