I am a frame and truss detailer.Amost every house in NZ is built with timber wall frames and timber nail plated roof trusses.We basically redraw the architects plans into our own software which then outputs to computer controlled saws and truss bed.

Some say that I'm "semi-retired" though I don't feel like sometimes... I spent 13 years as an electrician for a contractor, then I've been the last 21+ years as a maintenance electrician at a nursing home for veterans.

In the days before disposable electronics, we actually fixed things. As an old guy, I still do industrial electrical and electronic work for a division of a large corporation.

Hi,

Just thought I would add my 2p worth. I just discovered the thread.

I used to work in a Finance department until a year ago, then I moved to Sales Steering for a Container Firm. (The firms with very large ships, with lots of Containers on board.)

Stressful, but very rewarding.
