    Why the hell didn't I get this before?

    Been using a compressor air tank and a nail gun to do work.

    Always a pain in the ass to set up and maneuver the air hose around the house.

    I just got this.

    Battery operated. Cordless. So much nicer to work with.

    Do you considered yourself a "tradie" ?

    The battery is good for 1000 nails or so. It takes 30 minutes to charge it to full again. The reason I bought this brand is because I already got other tools like saw and drill with this brand, so I already have two other batteries for this.

    I should add that it really works well. I've been putting in new trims all over the place. This thing is a dream come true. I only wish I had thought about getting it when I was putting in the flooring.

    My full time job and career is being a professional engineer. Project management. My husband is a PR and marketing professional. In the side, we flip houses. Don't think of HGTV when you think of us. We do everything that's not on HGTV. We don't spend $50k to hire a crew to do the work. We do all the work ourselves. We have pretty much divided up what each one of us does.

    My husband is very talented with interior design. He also paints and help me do the heavy duty stuff. I'm fashion blind so I just implement whatever ideas he come up with. I do everything from knocking down walls (after I check to see of it's a load bearing wall or not lol) to plumbing to electrical and everything in between. We both learn as we go along.

    I first pitched this idea to him a few years back. I had found a house that was the ugliest house on that block. I was sure we could turn that into the most beautiful house on the block. If it flopped, then we would not do it again. If it gained a profit, then we would continue. Despite him not really buying it, he agreed to go along with it. We managed to make a net profit of about $50k. After that, he was fully on board with the gig.

    The trick is lots and lots and lots of sweat equity. Haha, there were days when I worked all the way to midnight, wake up at 5am to go to work, come home at 5pm, then work work work to midnight again.

    I had this idea that I could recruit help by providing free room and board. Tried it twice. Most people are too lazy want to do what we do. So we eventually agreed to keep this between just the two of us. No sharing profit with anyone else.

    So, in short, you could say I'm a tradie.

    😦 I understand you're an engineer, but are either of you a licensed electrician, plumber or HVAC? Don't you need to be licensed to rebuild a house? Doesn't the municipal building codes require it?What about inspectors?

    Let us worry about that. We know what we are doing. Unlike most people, these stuff aren't a black box to us. And that includes getting permits and city inspectors to do the necessary inspections.

    Are there 'unprofessional' engineers? Why the redundancy?

    Haha. Nowadays, everyone is an engineer. The guy driving the forklift is an engineer. The guy who just graduated college is an engineer. I know we live in a politically correct world now and everyone is an engineer. But I refuse to accept the communist mantra that every profession is on the same level. And no, a busboy is still not a professional.

    Actually that isn't true.

    You just can't call yourself or just anyone an Engineer. Or architect. Or doctor. Licensing bodies make sure of this in the interest of public safety.

    Even in Ontario you don't have to be licensed to work on a house. But under the law, you do require building permits and that will result in inspections. I used to do small wiring and plumbing jobs around the house....but to make sure that my insurance is in full force, I would hire someone who is licensed for these things now.

    I don't know how it works up there. But down here, it is becoming more and more common that everyone is an engineer. I know this because part of my job is to audit and approve the manpower onsite. In my reports I have to use very specific terms to describe who's on my site. All the operators are "operating engineer". The concrete test technicians who only had to go through 3 days of cert class to become one are called "concrete engineers". Etc.

    Fun story. A couple years ago I went to a new site to take over as the main structural engineer for an ongoing project to replace a guy who accepted a job elsewhere. First day onsite I went around to explore my new site after I had introduced myself to the people in my office. Out on site, I met the superintendant and introduced myself "hi I'm the new engineer". He introduced himself and told me I needed to do some soil testing over there. Puzzled, I told him no you don't understand, I'm the engineer. He said ok and I need you to do some tests over there. Then I realized the misunderstanding and told him I'm his new boss. This was in Arkansas. See, back in illinois, everybody understood what "the engineer" meant. The specs even specifies who "the engineer" was. But down there, everybody was "the engineer".

    I think there really ought to be more well defined titles to certain roles. I'm really not feeling it with the new way of calling everybody and their grandmother an "engineer".

    Haha. Imagine the riots if nurses and paramedics can start calling themselves doctors. And yet, no one seems to mind that all it takes for a person to start calling himself an engineer is to take a 3 day class and pass the test at the end.

    Anyway, point taken. I'll drop the P word going forward.

    Totally not like that in Ontario.

    Although the designation PE is used here as well.

    Half of the time when I pay to see a specialist, guess what I get? Yup, a nurse practitioner. The last one scheduled me for unneeded tests and nearly fucked up my meds., but this trailer trash drop out caught her mistake. Probably because I am not a pot head.
