Wondering who else is in the field of construction or engineering/ architectual, or manufacturing engineered products.
*Also, any suppliers / vendors should chime in.

These are arguably the most productive fields of work and probably make up a large portion of the worlds commerce.

I used to be a drywall contractor. The list of projects include, but not limited to:

  • Fontanel Mansion (Worlds largest residential log cabin own by Barbara Mandrell)
  • George H. Bush's home in Houston, TX
  • Frank Beard's (ZZ Top) home in Richman, TX
  • Ryman Auditorium--New Drywall & Plaster Repair
  • Loretta Lynn' Pool House
  • Lynn Anderson's Pool House
  • George Foreman's Weight Room
  • Sheb Wooley's Home
  • Randy Travis's Studio
  • James Drury's (The Virginian) Home
  • Webb Pierce's Home Remodel (prior to his passing)
  • Bobby Goldsboro's Home
  • Nolan Ryan's Home

(I may add to list as I recall them)

Now I deconstruct, as well as buy and sell barn wood. Prior to moving back to Illinois to be with my dad for his final years, I used to do same, coupled with building primitive furniture out of old, smelly, century-old barn wood for the Atlanta and Nashville markets, all the while living in West Tennessee. Now I supply the Greater Chicago area, harvesting and buying (and selling to) from seven Midwest states.

I worked for a General Contractor for 5 years as their Estimator/Project manager. Everything from residential (whole house) to commercial and government stuff.  It was ton's of fun, as I started literally on the bottom (part-time general labor), so I got to scrub walls after cement pours, stack and clean forms, etc.  Eventually I was lucky enough to participate in just about everything, from concrete, to welding, to carpentry, to standing steel, rough framing, finishes, drywall, electrical, plumbing, all of it.  When I moved up into the office, I also got to work with the plans, and since i'd already had experience with CAD/CAM stuff, got to build most of the projects we had in 3D.  Made estimation simple, and also brought to light a number of issues that could have posed problems when we were in the field.  Overall, it was a total riot.

Got out of it three years ago, ended up going back to web-design for a bit, and now I'm just loafing around unemployed. Cheesy

To be clear, if I'm a troll, I'm not a bad troll, but a good troll, if such a thing exist, otherwise I don't troll. I have on several (hundred) occasions injected humorous posts, if that is what you're referring to. As far as finding time to participate in this forum, I've spend close to 70% here while on the shitter. In fact, I'm penning this now while taking a dump. My barn wood enterprise consists of buying and selling from and to sub-contractors, with me acting as the liaison between parties. Rarely am I out in the field myself, albeit I just returned from a 3-4 trip to Indiana to procure a load(s). I couldn't get anybody else to do that task and didn't want to let it go to some other or, worse, burned. My total cost was only $500 USD (lodging, gas, and in this case, U-Haul rental), but will make a 40X profit on this lumber once processed.

I know you weren't dissing me with your post, but I felt a reply was warranted nonetheless.

Later, bud.

~Bruno~

The following image is not one of which I've supplied wood for, but it is one of what reclaimed barn wood is used for.

Excellent, where abouts were you located?
For the record I am currently a project manager / estimator too. And it is a pretty awesome job.

Heh, in beautiful Hawaii!  There is this thing they call "Hawaiian Time", which is a tounge-in-cheek joke about how no one is on time.  When I was having to deal with every supplier, vendor, inspector, architect and sub-contractor running on "Hawaiian Time", I was constantly pulling my hair out.

Sure, Hawaii is beautiful...  But if you like to get shit done on time, this is not the place, lol.  Still, it was one of the most exciting (and fulfilling) things I've ever done.  It's nice, at the end of the day, to be able to look at a house or project we finished and think "We built that!".

You took the words from my mouth about the pride in your project when it is completed.
Also, I have heard there are a few cultures that dont always recognize time like we do, native american, pacific islander to name a few.

Also Bruno, that looks great. Very rustic feel, but a beautiful finish. I know a group that does reclaimed wood desks, but they arent nearly as beautiful.
edit in* Your list of celebrity developed projects is awesome by the way,

Aha, none that I care to share. Wink

No qualifications that I will list but I am capable of the following:

Medium and low voltage wiring; residential, commercial, and industrial.
Panel building and control wiring.
Network cabling (but not fibre) and interconnects, including punchdowns and telephone.
Basic network and server administration.
Troubleshooting <-- this is the big one.

Hope it helps.

I am an electrical engineer.

Until I was laid off, I designed the electrical systems of almost all the new products lines for a heavy equipment manufacturer. I also automated their manual creation process, that was mostly a programming project, not my favorite activity in the world.

I have been attending college to gain a network specialization degree.


I have been working with electronics and computers since I was around 13 (41 now). I mostly repaired c-64 and Vic-20 back then and did a little primitive electronic design (I still remember blowing a few fuses in the house.. Grin  ).

Started as little part-time business years ago, and have been growing it since the lay-off. I have had a hard time finding a direction since giving up on the home PC repair market, I think I may have found that direction in Bitcoin.

Maybe we would want such a thing on our project!
But still I am unclear exactly what you do, this is probably my fault. But if you wouldn't mind elaborating or sharing with us the scope of one of your projects, I could better understand what the trade you are in is and specifically what your function is.

I spent 8 years working for the Evil Empire (North American version) as a nuclear reactor operator / instrumentation technician.
5 years managing a factory maintenance department while also designing and building automated welding robots to replace manual processes.
Now I'm 2 years into an electrical engineering degree.

Are you just interested in "professionals" or are you  gauging the general level of skills of forum members?

I have no certification but I've done almost all my own electrical, plumbing, and A/C repairs for the last 15 years. My wife and I owned and operated a high volume dry cleaning plant from 1997 to 2007, during which time everything that could break down did at one time or another and if I didn't know how to fix it when it happened, I made darn sure I did by the time the repairman left. I also kept my accounts with the business-to-business and wholesale suppliers I've used (though I'd have a very hard time legally purchasing dry cleaning solvent now  Wink ).

The only area I haven't really dabbled in is carpentry.

Still around.

We will call this General Handyman, knowing enough about a general trade to perform most average tasks. Also I could only imagine the hoops you have to go through to get dry cleaning solvent now considering the usual reasons and additionally this http://www.bna.com/dry-cleaning-solvent-n12884907857/ .

I am currently working in the lumberyard at a building supply store while I get my degree. I have also worked in a custom welding shop, in demolitions, and in farm/equine work. About to start a second job laying basketball courts around the state.

I am currently working in the lumberyard at a building supply store while I get my degree. I have also worked in a custom welding shop, in demolitions, and in farm/equine work. About to start a second job laying basketball courts around the state.

Cool, I will put you in the demo section as the first demo guy and list your other attributes. Does this mean you can act as a supplier of lumber in ways? Do you get a discount?

I do get an employee discount, but I am not supposed to use it for those outside my household or family and I will honor that. Also, I have driven a forklift daily at my current job and the two before it.

edit: i also have a fair amount of experience with masonry and concrete, all through volunteer work.

I worked for a General Contractor for 5 years as their Estimator/Project manager. Everything from residential (whole house) to commercial and government stuff.  It was ton's of fun, as I started literally on the bottom (part-time general labor), so I got to scrub walls after cement pours, stack and clean forms, etc.  Eventually I was lucky enough to participate in just about everything, from concrete, to welding, to carpentry, to standing steel, rough framing, finishes, drywall, electrical, plumbing, all of it.  When I moved up into the office, I also got to work with the plans, and since i'd already had experience with CAD/CAM stuff, got to build most of the projects we had in 3D.  Made estimation simple, and also brought to light a number of issues that could have posed problems when we were in the field.  Overall, it was a total riot.

Got out of it three years ago, ended up going back to web-design for a bit, and now I'm just loafing around unemployed. Cheesy

Excellent, where abouts were you located?
For the record I am currently a project manager / estimator too. And it is a pretty awesome job.

I used to be a drywall contractor. The list of projects include, but not limited to:

....
~Bruno~

Dually noted. Drywall is a vital part of most projects and virtually all homes. Very Valuable Trades... Keep em coming and you will see where I am going soon.

You would think that the world's largest residential log cabin (Fontanel Mansion) wouldn't have much drywall in it, but if fact it took 550 4'X12' (5/8" thick) sheets of drywall. The tricky part was making sure that my installers place the top sheet of any exterior walls a certain distance from the ceiling line, for there were 100's of these tiny jacks holding up the roof (though fastened to the walls) that had to all be turned 1/4 of a turn every (don't remember the time frame). This was to allow all that weight to settle evenly. If any drywall was off, there would be a gap or the walls would buckle and/or crack.

~Bruno~

Edit: In conjunction with drywall installation, I also contracted insulation installation, metal stud framing, installing commercial windows and doors, acoustic ceiling installation, wallpapering, cove base, synthetic stucco application (Stucco Flexr), and painting. All based out of Nashville, TN, and Houston, TX.

I've been doing general carpentry (drywall, painting, roofing, decks, windows, etc.) for the last 2 years for my uncle's company in Upstate NY. I've also operated forklifts, scissor lifts, electric pallet jacks, and boom lifts throughout my life.

What I would give to get 'in' with jet engines.. *jizz*

I've made a self sustaining jet turbine out of steel pipe and tin cans LOL.

Too bad it melted.  Bring on the tungsten ;P

Okay... ya got me... in my former professional life I was an Architect. Had two offices in the Midwest, and 16 really good people working for me. The portfolio was full of bottom feeder retail projects, if you have ever eaten in a Quiznos, had your hair cut at Fantastic Sams or Great Clips, had your significant other buy shoes at 5-7-9, purchased flannel at Eddie Bauer, gotten tech support through a NOC with Charter Communications, or stored your special munitions at Fort Lewis or Fort Ord, you have seen my work.

Unfortunately, one of those customers didn't pay for a whole lot of work done over the course of a year, and put us under with just about $ 750,000 in write-offs due to crooked Texas contract law, dishonest area developers, warped incestuous corporate ownership, gullible Third World franchisees, and a client who had a $25,000 per week cocaine and hooker habit. I won't embarass them by saying which one, I'll just hope that they choke on their next "Mmm, Toasty" sandwich.

I urge anyone considering entering into any sort of business arrangement with WiseOldOwl to read the entirety of this thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=18197.0

I would recommend others steer well clear of WiseOldOwl until he either justifies what was done with the funds invested in that project and/or repays the investors.
