I think he told you what the problem was, he wasn't comfortable leaving you on the job by yourself.

I guess you can't really blame the guy. If I had a business and had a gut feeling that things weren't going to work out I probably would do the same thing. No hard feelings, I left on good terms. I think I should have been more involved with the kitchen project we did. I just did the work but didn't show leadership qualities. I worked with his lead guy and didn't feel like elbowing my way into his position.

I got along perfectly with his workers and only had a couple trivial things mentioned to me from his men like using stack its and having lil too much sheath in the boxes. I was working really hard and we got the job in a timely fashion. I am thinking on the interview I came off a lil unsure of my abilities which probably made him doubtful. Oh well I think next time on an interview I will act like like I am the residential God when asked about capabilities as a lead guy.

Chalk it up as a learning experience and move on as quickly as possible. This happened to me one time too many years ago. It's possible the EC himself made a bad decision not hiring you and will be his loss. Stay positive and keep looking.
