After finishing up my building apprenticeship, I immediately found work at a local firm that did private home improvement work for residents in the local area. This was fine by me, it got me out of doing boring office work for the rest of my life.
It turns out a couple of my old friends begun working at the same company, so this made getting up each morning and going to work all the more fun. It’s not quite paradise, but it pays the bills and I enjoy what i’m doing for now, which is more than a lot of people can say.
The first few weeks have been tough and it’s a steep learning curve but we’re getting there slowly but surely learning all the tricks of the trade. Time will tell how far up the ladder I will go.
My most recent job included re wiring the electrics throughout a household so the customer could install heaters throughout the house. Why he needed those when he has one of the best wood stoves on the market is beyond me. In fact, after doing a bit of research online we found a great website called Warmhomeguide.com that provides in depth reviews on various space heaters and rates them by quality and effectiveness. Needless to say, my own homes heating needs fixing up, so this is going to be on of my ports of call before I decide on any unit.
Additional jobs included sorting the plumbing out and decorating the bathroom with newly purchased tiles and paint. It’s coming along nicely but will take a while before we see the fruits of our labor.
