Default New guy

Well, im 20 here, just more of a handy man around the house, doing things small time for now, moving outlets, putting new ones in, taking down basement non-supporting walls, and working on fixing it up for when my family sells it away.

I was recently asked to join the pipe-fitters union, but i'm just gonna stick it out in college.

Any questions, or talk let me hear what you got lol.

Hello Anthony:
I totaly agree with the college education but I would not easily blow off the membership in the Pipe Fitters. Having both would bring lots of job security and a handsome income. Very few are invited to join the Fitters.
