Hey! Love this place. I noticed a couple other painters from my area, Janesville, WI here.
You guys all rock!:rockon:
I look forward to sharing some stories and learning new stuff.

Thanks, It is a little different, but people seem to remember it so that works for me. I am pretty busy, booked solid through mid July. Hard time lining up interior work though for rainy days, going to start a new special for interior work I think. Wanna come work for me?:thumbup::whistling2:

My experience is mostly in new construction interior painting and staining. I have done some exterior work- around stateline area and in Florida. Currently just keeping myself busy. I'm a one (wo)man band!
Gas costs too much to drive to Madison daily. Let me know if you could use an extra body on any jobs a bit closer to Janesville.:yes:

Yah no kidding Michelle. I actually had someone apply for a position I was offering from down by janesville. I was like what are you thinking? besides the almost hour drive up here you wouldn't make enough for it to be a living by the time you payed for the gas.
But if you ever move in this direction I am looking for someone to work (possibly by themselves) in the winter as I am the terrain park manager of my local ski hill which keeps me busy some of the time. But until then . . .
We can try and figure out how to beat the dang WI weather. Though it probably isn't any worse than Scotts or the North East guys on the site.

Funny thing. I was interviewed 2 years ago to be an expediter for a builder in Madison. Cottage Grove, actually. The job never came through. Almost sounds like you......:001_huh:

Hey Booger! I'm sure Janesville loves you too.
I used to work for a company in Rockford. Worked on a job in Chi one time for them. A childrens museum.
How do you drive there? It's crazy!!

We have had some rain problems down the road from you guys as well.

We finished one yesterday had 2 1/2 days lost to rain on a 6 day job. We were able to go inside for only one of them. the other 1/2 day i was able to do estimates and the other I sat at home and did paper work. My guy had the non inside days off, all tho the days it did not rain we worked a little longer so he made up some of his hours.
