Hi everybody, I was just wondering what everybodies background was.
Like how did you come to be a Home Inspector?
Is it the money? The Chance to be self employed? The challange?
I'll start by intruducing myself.
I am William Campbell, age 43. I began my training as an Interior Trim Carpenter at the ripe ole age of 12, for .25cents an hour.
My brother-in-law taught me all the aspects of Interior Trim as well as remodeling.
In the 7th and 8th grade I was in General Construction. A 3 hour class dealing with everything to do with construction, from fence building to concrete work.
In the 12th grade, I was enrolled in Building Trades, where the class had to build a house under the guideance of a Licensed Contractor.
In the years to follow, I have had 5 years as a Wholesale Milkman, 14 years as a restaraunt cook and Manager.
I owned my own remodeling company here in Rockport untill March 2002, when I contracted a disease in my right arm called Reflex Sympathic Dystrophy.
I was retrained by Texas Rehab for Home Inspection in 2002. And recieved my Licensed, Dec 31,02.
I hope that ya'll join me in this thread, as I feel that it may be a way for us to sorta meet and get to know each other, as most of us may never meet in person.
