So my friend and lead hand on site has decided to leave the city for good in search of a house to own. He's been convinced that Comox is the bee's knees. What's it like out there for construction jobs? Do many companies pay $40+ per hour for a carpenter? If he's commuting to see family a few times a month is he really saving any money? Him and his wife both have lots of family in Vancouver that love to see their two little ones. I have to admit I'd love the slower pace as well but just too much to walk away from here.
