And now we wait... I’ve learned over the last couple of months that I need to keep busy. I need to create something other than babies😉. Over the last few years I have become very fond of a lot of people on Instagram and their woodworking skills. Most are just little shops that work part time out of their garage, but the stuff they make is amazing!
I have talked myself out of doing multiple projects because I want it to look right the first time. Well, I’m jumping in. Hopefully in a couple of years I will look back on these smaller projects and just laugh while being thankful. .
Cap flashing on a block wall is this mornings task. The inter-tenancy wall between these two houses had nothing but old mortar sealing the top of it. Water had been seeping down two storeys and damaging the internal wall linings on the way. This colour matched flashing will ensure we put an end to that issue!
Out of all things I’ve done in my life completing my red seal is easily what I underrate the most. An easy understanding is how I found this in a folder between other papers in a drawer as I was looking for what I deemed more important paper. However with this piece of paper here, I’ve been granted a freedom most other jobs won’t give you. No matter where I go I’ll have work and can demand the top rate of pay. This year I decided I’m done with Vancouver I’m going to move to Montreal and work was waiting for me. If I don’t want to work I just say I’m not going to work and I’ll have a job when I want to again. No worries about when I can schedule holidays. I’ve even told a former boss “Go f@ck yourself” and walked off site without any worry of how I’m going to pay the bills. Yes, trades may not be the most prestigious of jobs and may not make a million dollars a year but it’s does grant a freedom that’s really hard to find in any other profession #ibuild#carpenter#tradesman#freedomofchoice#honestmoney#dirtywork
