    welcome

    thats how i got into the trade
    owned a duplex and spent all my money remodeling and ten minutes after i moved in my first tenet in 92" the condenser quit called out a company and xxxx.00 for just the outside, found a guy to do a used system xxx.xx and 45 mins later cooling with a six month warranty and he told me flat out he just took it out of another house thats when i said thats what i am going to do for work went to school and 15 years later I'm here its a good trade and never let anyone discourage you, it sure is not rocket science.

    and you will soon figure out that

    find yourself a local one man show who needs a hand once in a while and he will be glad to show you the ropes but the big guys will hate on you hard

    When I get the equipment, I will repair it. For now, I have bought more time.
    I realize the expense on tools, but will have to buy it all gradually. I'm not Donald Trump.
