    Seriously. If they were ANY parcels big enough for that kind of operation, they would be worth many, many millions, as a housing development of some sort would go there. Or some other major commercial operation.

    My biking gloves smelled really bad from 3 months of riding and no cleaning. Finally decided to throw in the towel and wash them last week after my hands started peeling from an apparent fungal infection.

    When did you "throw in the towel"?

    You can never throw in the towel, because life never gets easier, only harder.

    Soon you stop worrying about stupid shit and be faced with losing your parents, friends, and realize your own health isn’t exactly guaranteed.

    Then you will realize every day above ground is a gift.

    I had a McCulloch but run a Stihl now. The MCulloch was nails but Flowing is correct. This is Stihl country...and my buddy is the Stihl rep.

    The 26K bid was real. Includes stain grade trim pack and doors, t&g ceilings plus it is a timber frame. The GC decided to paint it himself. I am just wrapping up the trim contract. It pays well. The homeowner is totally cool and not a penny pincher.

    You can keep denying what well established tradesmen can make. Many homeowners jaws drop too. Plumbers can be in excess for $100/hr. T&M on smaller jobs. I know of a foundations just sitting because they can't find any framers. It is a very simple house and it pays $60K.

    I don't doubt high paid contractors. My bro in law does million dollar jobs for big retail outfits. When you give some background to the job the price changes. 26k for under 3k sq ft of sheetrock and normal house trim is too much. For what you're describing the price still seems high, but market pays what it pays. Btw I painted professionally for about a decade.

    That exact thing is being built across from the Exxon. Somebody took a flyer or figured it out.

    Plumbers and Sparky's make good money, they cannot afford to buy in most resort ski towns either, all of them I know commute.

    Is it also because they don't want to live in a condo or townhouse?
    Most contractor/tradesmen like some space.
