My work was almost all residential-after-the-builder until 18 months ago when I started a commercial job. Now it's about evenly split between the two.

Machines, machines, machines..

Move them, install them, retrofit them.

Thats about 65% of the work.

30% commercial stuff, hanging lights, new circuits, tshooting.

The restis Resi for the people who own the business's I do work for.

Resi for the most part. "Old work" and I do mean work. Rather a challenge sometimes. Hey, if it was easy, anyone could do it? Something wrong w/me? I do appreciate the rewards of resi work tho. I had a customer call me the other night and again thanking me for making their life easier. Can't put a $ sign to that. The more you are given, the more is expected.

IMHO,

Steve
