Default Thanks hack

Me and a home remodel guy I work with lost this job because bid was too high. So they fired the low guy told us they would pay us cash to fix all the hackery. The bosses son hired one of his buddies, the hack.

So many people base their decision on price only. Seems like a lot of people don’t even want to talk to you, just want a number. I get a lot of emails for quotes from people who can’t even give me a full sentence description. They want the lowest price based upon 4 or 5 words. What do you expect you’re going to get?

I personally just don’t have enough money to be that cheap. Rich people can afford to be cheap- when they have to pay for the same thing over and over or their house gets flooded, they’ve got the cash to take care of it. Me, I save my money and buy quality and don’t look back.

Real question is- if I ever do a bada$$ hook-up like this one, should the hot be plumbed to front or back handle?

Picture not real, you think I would mock something up just for the sake of posting a picture.

Speaking of hackery... my former Master, who has left the trade for good, asked if I would finish the bathroom in his poll barn. Other then one sink, all water was ran. All fittings and fixtures supplied, all I needed to do was the underground and set fixtures. All went well until I went to set the shower. Right hand shower, faucet on the left, right hand wall had already been drilled for the valve. Asked him if he wanted me to just move the valve body. "No, I'll just buy a new surround." Ookaay. "Just put the walls up, I'll figure out how to patch the wall." Oooookaaay. Well, at least it looks good to him from his house I guess.

I hate it when I'm forced to do hack work. But at least I get a spartan 100 and a nice dewalt jackhammer in barter. The extra parts off my truck have been very minor, 2" pvc fittings, some pex, talons/mickies, caulk....

I should send that to him! Perfect fix! I have an extra panel from a ****ed up fire job. I could offer a piece of it, but I think I'll let him figure the monstrosity out on his own.

I've seen some of the work his guys did after I left... embarrassing to say the least. Reality shows he's better off selling lumber. Great guy, just a bad business owner with just enough to make Master and fail.
