Whether laying tile, meeting with a client to understand their vision, restoring an old farmhouse, or grading a steep property, most complete their hard day’s labor with confidence and expertise. When asked what about their jobs keeps them awake at night, several builders agree it isn’t the building tasks so much but the financial and growth aspects of business that pose the most worry.
