Hello from Jax Bch FL
I was born and raised in Jacksonville Beach. My name is Dustin and I have been remodeling houses for 10 yrs. My stepdad/boss is a contractor, so I got into the business when my mom married him. He worked for a cabinet shop in MN many years ago and has taught me everything he knows. I love my job, however I would love to only do the custom cabinetry and furniture building part one day. I don't like being on roofs or in attics, I especially don't like drywall work, although I find myself doing these things often. Although i have only been doing this ten years, it has been a third of my life. I don't really have any questions but I do have a lot of practical advice.
I read somewhere that you guys like pictures, I'm not working on much at the moment but I will try to post a picture of a mirror I built a couple weeks ago. I salvaged some mirror from a condo I gutted. I also included my entertainment center I built a couple of years ago. I salvaged the doors from another job, they were bifold closet doors that had been stained. I cut them down and built a cabinet around them. Then I scored a free piece of granite for the top.
