    I was commercial for over 20 year, just in the last 5 months I have gone back to resi.

    This was the first time they (resi) matched pay. Told them when I hired on, no attic full cuts in the summer or I walk. so far I love my sneakers and the later start time, no more five AM alarms.
    Books still out as to if I will stick with it or not, so far have done change out's to new constuction mansions.
    If common sense is so common how come so few of us have it!

    i'm with secorp, just started back where i started in resi
    and I'm happier for it, not going out at 10 pm and getting home at 100am and having the phone ring at 430 am again
    and the pay is actually better when all is said and done


    challenges = been there and got the t-shirt

    this new job, no pressure and we have duck-monkeys { yeah its a new breed} thats all they do

    I know that alot of comm. companies work ya to the bone, but not mine. we're usually home before 7 and after hour calls are almost never. so I'm happy here
    After finding out our second born was also a boy, my wife asked "why are you sooooooo happy" to which I replied; "2 of those things are easier to keep up with than 20,000!"

    I like commercial better because the bigger the machine the less you have to drive from job to job. the ladders do get old, if you are lucky the bigger units usually have elevators and chillers in the basement. also the crane does most of your work. downside no hot chicks in bath robes or sunbathing by the pool.
