That's the way to do it, Tim-- get them full grown - skips all the messy years. :)

Haven't heard much from Kentucky but you never know-- we have a lot of people who read only and one may pop in with something.  G/L

I think everyone I know in that part of the world is in or from McCracken County.

Sounds like you have a ready made crew to help and learn also, Tim.  Teach them what you know.  That some are girls doesn't matter.  They can use  construction trade skills too.  They will thank you later.  Hope the housing works out.

Good job, Tim.  I was working weekends for food for my old dead uncle.  Learned a lot at about 9 years old. :)

If you wait until they are out of school to start teaching them, it is too late.  They will have wasted a significant portion of their  life and at a time when they learn the fastest. Their time will have been occupied with TV - Nintendo - hanging out with the gang etc.  You are doing good by my opinion. :)
