Drywall Finisher


Money. That’s why I got into the construction trades.  No matter what you do you have to go to work every day so you might as well earn a decent living from it.  And I do.  I have two little kids at home and my job lets my wife stay home with them until they go to school. We have a nice house – big mortgage but a nice house - and I got my pick-up so what else do you need? Sure, this isn’t the easiest job around but if you know how to do it right it isn’t as hard as everybody thinks.  I learned to put up drywall one summer when I was helping a contractor who was doing about 40 new houses.  That got me into the company I work for now doing renovations and new offices.  This job isn’t rocket science but not everyone can do it.  It takes a while before you get any good at it and can go fast at the same time. The other guys on the crew call me ‘Picasso’ because I can apply the mud like an artist. There really is an art to it.
