I'm a remodeler in Northern California and do about $1.5 million per year in kitchens, baths, and whole-house remodels. Much of the work is subbed, so we can do this volume with a relatively small full-time crew; currently we have two in the office and three in the field.
Like a lot of builders, I have a hard time finding and hiring successful employees. This is especially true in the remodeling business, because employees need to interact with clients. We're looking not for short-term employees, but for people who want careers.
