Default Plumber from Tennessee

Been kinda lurking here just looking over things for a bit. Thought maybe time to try an introduction in case I see something to reply to.
My name is Brett and I've been plumbing a bit over 20 yrs
Have had my own company now for almost 7yrs in Nashville. Focused mainly on higher end residential construction with a little un advertised service and commercial work.

Good morning & Hail your way.

Curios, since you work in the Nashville area to you know a "Marshall Wright" who runs a building department near there?

I definitely do not know him personally but I think he works for Summer County Codes. I'm waiting on a rough in inspection there now so hopefully this isn't some kind of pita karma
Just curious why you ask, do you know him well?

Ahhh, bare with me. Pretty new to the site but now realize your a plumbing inspector now. Guess maybe he relocated from your area. As I get older and older I realize more and more such a small plumbing world we live in really.

Yep I know Marshall.

Besides a plumbing inspector, I worked in the field for 30 years. Marshall was from a municipality about 20 miles from me and a member of the C.E.O.S.I. (Code Enforcement Officials of Southern Illinois ) an International Code Council official chapter. I'm currently the vice president of it.

He is a pretty nice and easy going guy.

Good to hear! And yes, I would say 99.9% of our inspectors have been in the field and or have been a plumbing contractor. My past business partner is actually now a metro plumbing inspector. May look at following your footsteps when I can breathe and settle down from this crazy racket 😂

No glory here. But when you hit mid 40's or so those 140 degree attics and 20 degree mud filled crawl spaces don't look so good.

Well, I'm in my mid forties already so... Yeah. Ha ha. But honestly I feel more like a secretary and mentor more than a plumber 😊
Just making a living and helping my guys keep food on they're tables and they're kids clothed. Maybe another 5-10 years and I can be done here.
