Volunteer my time to help with training and promoting trades in any format mainly trying to focus on local apprenticeships programs.

Troy Stanfield

Staff efficiency.

Ron Teljeur

Improved concrete prep, some of T.J. Haas' wood floor candy, start improving the templates and estimating spreadsheets we've used for years. Get the new shop fully operational...and maybe a day off here and there. And the NWFA show in Milwaukee.

Jack Toomey

Hiring help!

Nicholas C Maxson

More cash, less taxes.

Dave Mitchell Jr.

To start a second crew.

I always like to learn more. Besides that, only do jobs in my neighborhood.

Invest in some branding.


Equip our distributor partners with more product knowledge, sales techniques and modern marketing tools.

Perhaps consolidate my business to ride through tough times ahead. Spend my time and money where it’s best spent, not keeping staff on just for the sake of it.


Get my son off his cell phone while he’s working!!!


Expand it and make it more known to people.

Longer lunches.
