As I have mentioned, my husband and I own and operate a small contruction company. We do commercial HVAC. (that's heating ventilating and air conditioning, if you don't know) So when you are in an office and you look up at the grilles in the ceiling with conditioned air coming out of it, or you go shopping at the mall on a hot day and it's nice and cool in the stores, that's the work we do..
I work as the estimator. I look at plans which were prepared by a mechanical engineer and add up all the costs associated with the work, including materials, equipment, rentals, subcontracted work and our own labor and come up with a bid for the work. If I'm the low bidder, we get the job. At that point, my husband and step-son take over and manage with work with the help of our crew of installers.
That's what I do. My work can be rewarding and scary and satisfying and stressful. When I come home at night, I'm tired and ready to be happy and feel good with my family.
