Every job is different,” he continued, “regardless of simi- larities; jobs vary, at least a little bit. Halifax Heating does our Heating and Ventilation, Evergreen Electrical does our electrical work, B’s Plumbing does all our plumbing, I use Ocean Contractors for all our foundations, Ocean- front Excavating do all of our excavations, I use McCarthy’s Roofing or Classic Roofing for all our roofing, and I’ve got a great relationship with Kent Building Supplies and Payzant Home Hardware as suppliers.
