Thanks for being honest and transparent about the gapper situation. I really appreciate that.
I personally see this happen often in the construction industry. Poor leaders make poor work flow and resentment between coworkers.
When I had my phone interview with Tim about me coming and working with y'all at the lab, we discussed how volunteers would only cause problems and slow down the experienced construction people and could even be a job site hazard. Especially with the heavy equipment.
In my opinion, I think Tim and I could have knocked many of these projects out without volunteers. Combining Tim's background in framing, carpentry, and general construction and my background in earth works, utilities, electrical, solar, etc.
Just how you like to hire a take charge housekeepers, you have to hire take charge construction workers. Even though its permaculture, it still requires construction to start and establish the infrastructure and systems.
Thanks for pulling the financial weight of the Empire!
That picture made me laugh because it is so damn true.
