I have seen "it's cheaper", or "what is cheapest way to do" so many times here since I started reading posts.

It's worse than craigslist sometimes. lmfao & that's the place y'all slam.

talk about an oxymoron........they have cheap rates, and a lot of you have cheap parts or cheapest way to do something.

I was taught to use the code as a minimum, a starting point.

are you the same folks who don't get a speed limit sign states the "maximum" speed.....not a avg or starting speed & what not.

why is everyone so big on the cheapest way to do the job but with top/high wages? but not the best or Cadillac job with good/fair wages?

Cadalac projects are great. We'll put years of design into a project, thinking up every contingency, specing out the best of the best parts, best of the best installs and QA/QC, top notch commisioning and docummentation/close out books.

But not everyone will pay for that. Ok go get the mile long spool'o MC. :laughing:

I'm selling what you are buying.

I work on schools and other government type projects and all I see is money wasted. The school I'm almost finished with was two story all wood construction. I wish they would have let me rope it with romex.

I think of speed limits as suggestions and speeding tickets as performance awards. :whistling2:

thread high-jack!:laughing:

the point is guys laughing and pointing fingers at CHEAP guys on CL for labor, while they look for the CHEAPEST way to do the job?

I just don't get it?

So if we want to laugh at the craigslist hacks, we should be looking for the most expensive way to do a job?

Is this some kind of sales pitch for EMT in a house or ginsu knives?
I just lit the fire, the beer is cold & the kind is, well kind :blink:

tony robbins taught me to SELL!

stop by bro, lets chat :laughing:

How can we sell ourselves as the most economical install, use top notch materials, & make or pay top $$?

It's just how the games played, an anecdotal ex of the math , which works similar to our trade ....

30 yrs ago when i sold fixer uppers i would get them for $1000, put a $1000 into it , and make $1000 profit on 'em

:whistling2::thumbup::no::laughing:~CS~

And who' to say 'ol Cleet doesn't make a grand living?

I find him one of the more honest posters, because he openly alludes to what most EC's are doing but won't admit to here

The doctor who graduated at the bottom of his class...still graduated. Maybe he can work cheaper, as well.
