They actually got burned for doing just that. They had a shooting a year ago, got bids for cleaning it up by certified guys (all around $4500), then let their painter bid it out (not certified). The painter bid it out at $400, thinking it was an easy 1 hour job. At least that's what they all thought, until the board of health got their hands on them. If you have hud house, you have to do it correctly or suffer the consequences. Sometimes you can get away with it, sometimes not. But once you get burned, you get very leary about skirting it again.

We even have to be taught how to talk to tenants nowadays. Say the wrong thing and its a $100k discrimination suit.

I described this thread to my wife. She immediately came up with the same response, and we have no kids. Nicely done.

Heck, those two spots alone are worth over $1500. now slap some gloves on and a respirator and get at it!

I used to do trashouts that were much worse than that before painting took over my business, now we did some dumb stuff during those days. Now, I have come to realize that if you get certified at something, you can charge like a champ.

My bad. I meant low as in low blow, not cheap price.

Glad I never do that

Drunk posting is easy.

I kind of have to assume it gets even more interesting when doing it in February? I know DaArch was mentioning the other day that we run into some turbulence during that month on here.

I'm kind of looking forward to the February feistiness on here he was describing. I've never witnessed this before.

The whole cabin fever thing at PT, started years ago when the economy was crippled and painters had nothing else to do but drink and display samples of their company logos.

I sense things have changed for the better for most painting contractors, in terms of work being scheduled and businesses growing. So expect only a few disgruntled members trashing the place.

But those were fun days!

Hmm, interesting. Things have changed for the better for me in some regards having picked up a bunch of work from a new GC. He doesn't have anything for me in the month of February though, and my phone hasn't exactly been ringing off the hook from my regular thing (res repaints) which is predictably standard for this time of year.

This is my first week where I've been sitting about with nothing to do in about a month. Sitting about waiting for someone to actually pay me for work I did over a month ago.

Thus, I Painttalk.

It's a painter's forum, what other kind of posting is there? (Man I'm bad at making friends)

Actually, I first saw the term "Cabin Fever" used on a usenet Radio Control Airplane group back in the 90's. It appears that getting grumpy, intolerant, combative, insensitive and overly sensitive on the internet in February has a long history.

Sounds like something I could get in on (minus the week I'm in Orlando, at least)

Again, a thread runs in a different direction. What could have been a crowning moment for driftweed, seems to have been squeezed out by some other gut wrenching movement to facilitate a fever from not getting out of the house.

I'm evacuating myself from any further indigestion from this thread.

The sure cure for Cabin Fever, get outside and enjoy the scenery:

Nothing like tempting an icicle to pierce your skull. I'd rather hang out at a Barnes and Nobles where I can present a scholarly aire that the chicks just can't ignore.

Yup, in this weather (snow today, and rain, and slush), I manufacture ways to get outside.

As long as I can stay warm, I love the cold.

I can't say I appreciate the movement from bad fecal matter puns to a more serious off topic.
