Probably trim work. That's what it sounds like to me.

Or painting.

Ian Welsh

I used to paint houses. Was taught by an old German who showed me how to grip a paint brush, how to make the strokes. Told me to do it exactly the way he showed me and not worry about how long it took.

So I did. Got to the point where I could trim by eye and hand, didn't use tape at all. But if I'd tried to be fast first, instead of doing it right, I would only have been fast, not good.

The real lesson, of course, was not about painting.

"Yards" usually means concrete (or excavation, though he doesn't seem to be talking about that). Trim is in linear feet and paint is square feet.
