Job My Husband Did
Lenox, Georgia
June 7, 2016 12:28pm CST
There are certain jobs here that my husband can do without having to be licensed. Getting licensed here is pretty tough. I decided this morning to look up what license he needs to do the work on the side. I found a few websites that all said the same thing-he doesn't need to be a licensed contractor to paint, do flooring, put in cabinets, etc... I didn't know that so it was good information to find! Have you learned anything new today?

I haven't learned anything new today yet but I am sure sometime today I will learn something new. It seems the laws are different from state to state.

@Marcyaz Yes they are. Where we used to live in NC it was much easier to become Licensed but here it's very difficult so I was glad to know that here he doesn't need it for certain jobs.

Nope. Nothing new. Oh, about the Cream horses. They are huge and have no pigment. Red eyes. Never heard of them before. Hope I get the article written soon.

Yes indeed! I learned that a man doesn't have to be licensed to paint, do flooring, and put in cabinets in Florida. Never knew that.

It will be good if your husband can do at least some handyman work without needing a licence.

I don't think the jobs you mention need licenses in the UK - only jobs that could be dangerous if done wrong, like electricians.

@Jabouk Yeah electricians and plumbing need a license here but not the jobs my husband will be doing.

Well, you found information that will make things easier for your husband and lead to more jobs. I learned that the petunias I planted in urns are quite ugly already, so did a change. I never like caring for petunias, and I am not sure why I bought them.

No, I have had nothing happening for new today. But yes, it is good to know that there are still certain jobs at US that do not need us to have a license. But @marcyaz also mentions that this varies from state to state. In contrast, here in India, there are many jobs that do not need a license - if you are working as a single individual and that does include painting, carpentry, electricians etc. Definitely having some background with these things helps if you want to make a profession of these.

Yes I learned something new. Well not exactly new since I had an idea but not the stats. I learned that India has only about 1.1 % of divorce rates where US has around 48 % for first marriages, around 60 % for second marriages and about 70 % for third marriages. Also only 1 out of 100 arranged marriages fail which can't be said about love marriages. I was re-searching for the article to write as a myLotter has requested of me to write to explain the concept of arranged marriages to them. Don't quote me on that though! LOL!

There's information all over and we have so many resources that offer us the information. I'm sure your husband was pleased with not having to obtain the license for the on the side jobs.

You don't need a license for general contracting like building a deck, flooring, partitioning, cabinets, etc. But some states require that you carry a liability insurance and sign-up with Workmans Comp(there's a fee involved, of course). Any electrical work, even at home, requires a license or you can do the work and have it certified by a licensed electrician. If you're 'moonlighting' under the table for friends and neighbors(except for electrical), no big deal.
