I think your skill set and desires would fit here better than your inquiry to Rock Springs. It is gonna be easy to find work (I have an uncle who's done flatwork in Loveland since 1965). My Father-in-law did stone work there for 40yrs before retiring and moving to OR. Affordable Housing will be a challenge. You will just have to dig, and maybe live out east for a spell.

actually there are quite a few, I'm suprised they are not commenting. Personally, if you are good at flatwork, and can 'stamp and stain', there is a LOT of money in Ft Collins, Loveland, Masonville, Estes Park, and some very creative people. The will want to be dressing up their places, as they can't afford to 'upgrade'. It is a very stable 'diverse' economy (unlike WY, boom or bust) You can work almost every day (except this yr... very rare extended cold / snow) It is quite a nice place... There are also some new technologies in concrete veneering that hold promise for decorative work. Actually I'm thinking of buildin my next house as a 'tilt-up' passive solar. I almost bought a 10yd cement truck for $1800 to use as a site rig, just that I'm not sure where my next site will be, and already have dozer, Tracked bobcat w/ 8 attachments, excavator and tractors + dump and flatbed to move. + adequate tools, 2 mills (3,000#each), lathe(2,000#) gonna be a heavy trip. I better start brewing some extra Bio-diesel.

LOL @ brewin extra bio diesel.... If you figure that out make sure you get a patent! Sounds like your about all ready to go and I think you have something on the solar system. One thing I would suggest also would be in radiant heat in your basement floor but with so many in your family that have been involved with this I'm sure they've already let you know... Thanks again

My brother is #2 in his company....they build Wal*Marts, Home Depots and the like....lots of retail stuff.

If you are as skilled as you state, send me a PM and I will try to get you in contact with some of the larger construction companies.

My family has been involved with construction all my life.

From commercial construction to home building, I have a few connections or at least where to steer you to.
