Hello I am a 2nd generation painter out of Michigan on the IN/MI border. After running my dad's company for 18 years I stared my own 11 years ago. Times are getting tough around here in the new residential market but Townhouses and condo's are picking up. Commercial is doing pretty well also. This used to be one of the best new housing areas in the country all the way back to the 1970's. I've had to really change the way I think to keep things going in a productive and positive manner. I look forward to any input I can get from anyone who has anything constructive to say. Most of you are thousands of miles away so it's not like we can step on each others toes.
