    I have a brother who would like to come down there to get in on the construction or remodeling. Would any of you have any advice. He has all tools to build about any part of a house. He will be comming from Tennessee so will have to find a place to live but he does not know even what area to start in. He is single so he can live about anywhere. He has construction experence and also 15 years experence in distribution and management of employees.

    Fishman, my cousin is on the Mississippi coast with a crew replacing roofs on houses. He has been calling me every couple weeks or so letting me know whats going on. The next time I hear from him, I'll ask him how he got hooked up with the work. I do know that they are staying in campers at an RV park.

    Hancock, Harrison, or Jackson county Mississippi would be a great place to go. Can't help you much on any ideas where to live. Everybody's needin that right now.

    There is LOTS of work in New Orleans, but unless he has a travel trailer there is few options right now on where to live. All the hotels are booked up, he would have to stay places like Hammond, or such, and drive an hour one way. The money is good though.

    Jeff: My brother would make you a good hand if you could use the help. He doesn't really care where he goes as long as he can work.
