Tom states the trade well for the Chicagoland area. There is so much new home construction going on that the builders electrician moves from one house to the next, often with the same floor plan. After a few of them it gets like factory work and they crank it out. Unfortunately, like factory work, the work is rated and you better make rate.
I'm doing commercial condominiums that are getting fairly routine after two services (4 X 200-amp 3PH) and ten units. Like factory work, you tend to look for new tools, or new methods that will save you a little time.
In this area many of the homes are duplexes, and if the community doesn't require EMT for single family dwellings, they will require it for duplexes.
