After researching the laws and understanding them a little better I have decided to continue doing construction work by myself with no employees. I may subcontract work out to others that I feel confident that can get their job done.
The ultimate goal is to make it viable without 18 forms of red tape to jump through. And for now this is how I will handle that until the business has reached a stead pace.
The ultimate goal is to start buying rehab houses and resell. Eventually that will be the case in the right areas.
