    Nice soft carpet :)

    I had a nice comfortable Sunday working on a carpeted floor.

    It's not what you're capable of doing that defines you, it's what you do on a daily basis.

    Sweet!
    You should consider a pay web service to watch videos of you fabricating and installing ductwork. I’d definitely would pay to 'try' to learn.
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    Wow. That had to of taken some time. All worth it after that result. I notice a lot of your customers have pretty old equipment, that Carrier has to be close to 30 years. Or is that just the norm in your service area?

    So how do you go about your installs? Your sheet metal work has to be time consuming. I remember seeing your install van in a post, so you make all your fittings on site?

    For example when I do an install I’ll take my pre measurements then make 90-100% of the metal in my shop at home. That way I can get the heat on the first day. Second day for finishing up. If I made the metal on site with your set up it would definitely be metal first day. Equipment operational the second.

    This job took me a little over 8 hours total. Yes there's lots of old stuff in my neck of the woods.

    That's artwork right there!

    Beyond beautiful.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    A pan under the unit would have been a good idea, looks great.

    Very nice as usual. The only thing (which isn't your fault) is that it's kind of weird to have the furnace right in the middle of the room like that. How much more work and/or money would it have been to extend the ductwork electrical and gas in order to shove that thing up against that back wall?
