    Hi there
    My name is Col long time follower but thought i would get involved in discussions.
    I along with the bank have an interest in three properties all on the sunshine coast .
    Yes i have just about every error and then some in the book but sticking with it and just starting to see the rewards.
    Looking forward to some lively discussions soon.
    Im a carpenter by trade but have been doing pest control for the last couple of years so hopefully i can help on some of theses topics

    Hi Col
    Welcome. A chippy on the Sunshine Coast who does pest control or a pest controller who knows how to swing a hammer. Either way pretty handy combination.

    Do you do pest inspections also?

    I would of liked to be a chippy but my job is still pretty fun!

    Have you ever built up? I know a guy that has done very well in property by always building up! Adding a storey I mean

    I certainly do pest inspections.
    I got into pest work because as a chippy doing insurance repair work i kept coming acroos jobs that i would attend where it was thought water was the problem but once termites are found the insurance companies dont want to know.so my thinking was i could get rid of the termites put a barrier inplace and carry out the repair work.3 bites of the same cherry if you like

    Woah, that sounds like a big job.
    Is there any more potential in the house?
