It’s all in the detail.

So..... turns out picking tiles is a lot harder than picking flooring!!! So many different options to choose from - I went into @choicesflooring last Friday and I feel like a am in way over my head with the ability to choose all the fine details for my house! I’ll get there, but I’ll definitely need some help. Starting to wonder if I’m too young for this? 😂

Return To Where It All Began
What was your first construction job? Let me know in the comments below 👇👇
Years ago, mid 90's, I was asked over the course of a few weeks if I wanted to make 10 bucks an hour
At the time, I thought the fella was drunker than he appeared as I was working multiple jobs whose combined wages barely topped 10 bucks an hour
But, for those that knew or still know ole Joe, he's a persistent son of a gun if nothing else. Finally he broke me down and I said why not? The next day I reported here, my very first construction job, which at the time was Dorsett Inn. They were constructing a large addition to the original building and yours truly became part of it
Years pass and here we are. Far removed from my first day of not knowing how to carry foundation forms properly (I carried em like hay bales much to the enjoyment of the crew I learned later) but I didn't quit nor stop. Pretty much which is what got me to this point here today. Not stopping. Call it determination or bullheadedness or destiny
The location still exists albeit it is now a different bar. Saturday was heading to the @foundrybakery to pick up some awesome goodness and was approaching this locale and the nostalgia washed over me so I swung in and grabbed this picture
This story is exactly why I have a gnawing inside me to pay things forward whether today or tomorrow. I find there are people out there deserving of a chance, of an opportunity if they are willing to pay their dues by putting in the work, sweat and tears
Many things have good intentions starting out but get mired down in red tape or corporate bullshit sooner rather than later. This post, these thoughts is just the tip of the iceberg to all which is running around inside this head. Stay tuned (FOLLOW) for much more to come. I appreciate your attention by allowing me to write this out onto this platform as it really helps sort through and organize my thoughts. Thank You
Did you plan to be in construction or did the door open for you like it did me? Let me know in the comments below! 👇👇 I love hearing how people got their start in construction!
A quick time lapse of @lb3enterprises moving the last bulk earth at the new Terramor housing development in Corona. I’m visiting with them this week in San Diego - keep a look out on my stories for more LB3.
