Default My business turns 2 in a few weeks...

When I joined PT it was a couple years before opening my business, The Painting Practice here in SE MN. I therefore used my usual screen name which is better suited for my other trades; wudshapr. Being a former trim guy I was aware of the troubled relationship between chippies and painters but made the mistake anyhow. With the birthday coming, I figured it was time to message the mods and get right.

Hi everyone, my name is Greg and I have been in the trades for over 20 years, painting being a large part of most of it, and now am mostly a painter aside from the usual small requests. I really like being the last guy on the job, and the amount of dynamic satisfaction the finishes can bring to the project. I like customer interaction, providing a service almost anyone can do but squaring up on the quality spectrum somewhere towards the higher end.

I have used PT and all of the knowledge shared on numerous occasions, and consider it an enormous asset (life preserver). Thank you for all the help and guidance, hope to keep learning and practicing, better and faster, using the appropriate tools and techniques.

Rochester in and around. It's a nice compact but decent sized market here.

Very nice town and area. Mayo Clinic. A very good clientele base to cater to.
