Tales from the Job Site, A Frustrated Contractor Confesses.

Tales From The Job SiteLearn about the trials and tribulations of a general contractor. (Hilarious encounters on the job between homeowners, contractors, and sub-contractors as seen through the eyes of a second-generation contractor who learned the business from his father.)

If it seems like there is a remodel project going on on every block in your neighborhood, you are probably not seeing things. Remodeling revenue has been steadily climbing every year and in some cases outpacing new home construction. If you have a good location it may make more sense to improve what you already have. Why buy when you can have a dream home and a dream location?

Everyone has a remodel story to share or knows someone who is going through the process. Every third TV channel has a show about remodels. Everyone has an opinion about a remodel, especially if it is not their own. This can lead to all sorts of interesting stories, conflicts, and yes, even success stories.

Mike Pesola's first writings were published in Highlights for Children. He then published a book, The Bedrock Guide to Remodeling Success, which was featured on Good Day Sacramento.

The Sacramento Bee, Sacramento News and Review, and Davis Enterprise have all printed favorable reviews of the Mike Pesola's latest book.

One of Pesola’s customers recently wrote:

“Your book has kept me in stitches; brilliant!"

Customer feedback has also been excellent. The book now sells at Avid Reader in Sacramento, at Ace Hardware in Davis, and may soon be selling at The Sacramento Airport, along with on-line sites like amazon.com and publishamerica.com.

The top five comments heard on a remodel site:

  1. The check is in the mail.
  2. Honey, should we get a mailbox for the contractor so he can start getting his mail here?
  3. I didn't know I had to pay for all these change orders.
  4. My neighbor said my granite does not go with my new cherry cabinets. (Holy cow!!!!!!)
  5. You know you have had enough when your 83 year old male customer walks around the house naked in front of you and all your employees... and gravity has done a thorough job.

The Bedrock Guide to Remodeling Success

Bedrock Construction Guide to Remodeling SuccessThis consumer "How To" publication was commenced by Mike over a decade ago as a checklist for him, the contractor, in doing remodel projects. In fact, the informational database for the manuscript has been learned over the thirty years work experience which Mike began by his father's side as a teenager. Likewise, Mike gives credit to his father for his value system relating to honesty, integrity, and forthrightness.

This manuscript fills a significant need for the property owner who is planning a remodel, expansion, or other construction work. It provides clear and concise explanations for how to plan, contract, and complete such projects. It also provides step-by-step instructions, if followed, will result in a pleasant and stress-free project completion. Both owner and contractor benefit from the clear program definition in advance.

This manual is a guidebook. It points the way to success, warns of possible dangers along the way, and gives one the knowledge to avoid most pitfalls. It's most useful if read before starting the project.

Contact us or check your local hardware store for your copy. Here's to your success. Cheers!
