You're going to be jumping for joy when you see your GC's roofers and drywallers.

    You should probably never again complain about illegal immigration or repeat that Savage nonsense about "borders, culture, language."
    Wrong again!

    The estimate for Framing was in the Contractor's estimate. At $15 per square foot, it is high but the builder is in demand and gets his price. I could have gotten a builder to do it for $12 per foot but I went with the builder that is in demand.

    I have yet to see a non-hispanic crew do any building in Louisiana other then the plumbers, AC and electricians.

    Unlike most of Florida, home values in this town were up nearly 3% last year.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Oh, I see. Alrighty, then. He's such a good builder that he just has to hire illegal immigrants and charge more for his work. Makes sense to me. And it must make sense to you to the extent that you can rationalize years of ranting about illegal immigrants on this forum and then turn around and hire illegal immigrants to work on your own house. Illegal immigration is bad when others benefit, but OK when you benefit. Sleeep tight.

    Wrong yet again!

    There are no other framing crews in this part of the world. It is a lot of work to frame and the locals take on easier jobs. If you want a new house one is going to get some Hispanic labor, there is no way around it!

    I've stated in this thread as well as others that I am against illegal migration.

    I am all for securing the borders but, our government is not. So until they are secured, Hispanic labor is in abundance. I didn't know who was going to show up for the framing job, they were hired by my General Contractor. The head Mexican drives a late model King Ranch. His helpers showed up in three new Ceby pickups. I don't think any of them are hurting for cash. The drank Modelo at the end of the day and not cheap domestic beer. I know because I brought them a case of iced down Coors Light at the end of one day and they thanked me and broke out thier Modelo.

    P S

    They also work very neat. Didn't have a lot of building debris left around the house when they were done. I was impressed!

    All I know Franco is that either your math is fuzzy or someone is getting screwed. The contractor is working for free if all his illegals are driving new trucks and drinking fancy beer. If not, they are cutting some serious corners and your house is going to fall in on you one night when the wind starts blowing. You brag about that many guys working that hard for that long and they are all riding in style? How many construction crews you see that look like that? Sounds like bullsh#$ to me and I have been around contractors and the RE industry and since 1985.

    Bill, I think you extreme right brain has gotten fuzzy!

    The General Contrator works off a percentage of the cost. I look the bids over and select a sub from the subs that work for him. When they are done, I pay the subs. The GC gets his percentage in four payments. Each step gets inspected by me. No mortgage company is involved so I can do it this way! This is not a depressed area. Sales taxes are up just about every year including 09 and 10. Until the drilling moritorium we had full employment, which is now just coming back to full. Workers flock to this part of the country because we haven't joined any recession.

    So, I know this is hard for you to understand but, no one including the Hispanic labor is being taken advantage of. Too many lucrative construction jobs for them, so they do get paid well.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but life is good around here.

    I can only speculate that they are because they don't speak much American.

    I don't care when the GC get's his piece of the pie. A pie is only so big to start with. You can split it so many ways... it's still the same pie.
