Me and my husband are thinking of moving to louisville. He does construction. Are there any jobs available there in construction? How easy would it be for him to find something? He is a framer/foreman. Thanks

Louisville has a pretty amount of new housing construction and a ton a large projects under construction or planned in the near future, including a new arena, outdoor concert venue, 62 story skyscraper, and 7 buildings from 10 to 20 stories. Louisville also close to fast growing housing markets in Northern Kentucky and Lexington

Also, Kentucky has the 8th lowest foreclosure rate in the nation, and house prices in Louisville and Lexington are rising much above the national level... bascially the housing bust is already over here.

whoa thereeee ... You said your husband is a framer. Construction of stick built homes is nearly in the tank. Don't come here expecting to work with wood. Yes, there is quite a bit of steel and concrete work going on, but I wouldn't come here until sure that I had a job.

True, but construction workers often travel long distances to their job site. If there isn't some type of construction going on in Metro Louisville those fast growing counties in Cinci, Indy, and Lexington will.

I think Jefferson Co still leads the state in home construction with an annual average of over 3,000 new homes - this is due to population shift from the West End, which means more houses for less growth

Default Thanks again

It looks like there is a lot of construction going on. I am sure he could get into another line of work within the construction field if he had to or like the other person said look into the nearby cities. Thanks again!!!!
