At 7 AM I will have been at work for 2 hours.

Do you work in a bank?

OP check you local noise ordinances.
I work an 8-5 desk job. I have worked my ass off to get to this point.
I cherish my ability to roll out of bed at 7:30am to be to work at 8am.

Most of our job sites start around 7am, but we do not build near residential areas.
If we did I am sure the owners would wait until 8am to start the bulldozing work.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 6:18:30 AM EDT
That's called a local noise ordinance

You need to ask locally to see if your area has one
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 6:18:55 AM EDT
Construction generally starts @ 7am sharp.

7am in these parts!!!!

Check your local (county or town) ordinances concerning construction and noise.

FYI - 7am ain't early for construction work.  Most morning tailgate safety briefings start at 6am and by 6:30am everyone is finishing their coffee and firing up equipemnt.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 6:20:42 AM EDT
local ordinance.

the earlier they start, the more hours they can work. the sooner they get out of your area.

Waaaaa, working folks working.

This. I would check the local ordinance but as far as i'm concerned 7am is daytime. People work during the day.

I won't begrudge a man for feeding his family. Not but a few years ago I had to work 16-20 hours a day, 7 days a week to make a living (industrial construction).

My wife likes to stay up late and sleep late when she can. Every once in awhile she will slip up and gripe about me making noise as 7 or 8 in the morning. That's an easy way to get me started on a rant about welfare rats and the decline of work ethic in younger generations.

I'm only 25 but when I was a young lad, you got up at 4am sharp even if you didn't have work, which you did, because work is how we spent family time together. Building fence, working on pickups, etc. Until I was about 21 or so, I thought it was completely normal to never sleep more than 4 hours a day and work every day even if it was just repairing things at the house or doing a side job for cash.

I think 7am is kinda the unwritten law around here, for being loud.

The fact that the city starts making noise at 7am when working on the utilities here, makes me wonder if that's the written law too.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 6:33:24 AM EDT
Dawn.

Or 7AM

Whichever comes first.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 6:34:15 AM EDT
7 AM is when we'd fire up the noisy machines when doing road construction in populated areas.

Our ex neighbor would crank up his leaf blower at 07:00 every Saturday, resulting in from the two daughters.

I'm up at the crack of dawn to walk the mutt so all they got from me was a, "awwwwwwwwww."

It's kinda funny all the people in here who automatically started trash talking.

Do you not realize that plenty of people work swing or graveyard shift, meaning they sleep during the day? In plenty of residential areas the noise ordinance says no loud noise before 8am. It does vary by city though.

is the sun up? then its gtg... sucks living next to construction
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 6:51:51 AM EDT
Sooner they get started, the sooner the project will be complete.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 6:53:10 AM EDT
LOL 7 is early to you?   You sound like my wife bitching about the roofing people putting on new roofs around our house after 0800

ETA  My Father in law works the 2-12 shift at UPRR,  he still is able to see the sun come up most morning.  He is kinda old though and I think that's how they used to be back in the day
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 7:22:41 AM EDT
just wait until the roofers join the party they start at 6am so they are off the roof before it gets really hot
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 7:39:53 AM EDT
OMG!! someone is working at 7 am?  WTF???!!



I start at 6:30.  Lots of people get up early and go to work.

House up the street from mine is have a basement dug out and new foundation put under. They started around 6 am last week.

Have you ever worked outdoors? In the SW during summer work often starts at 6:00am or even earlier.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 7:50:29 AM EDT
If wasn't a good neighbor I would be out mowing the yard at 7:00am before it gets too hot.
Link Posted: 7/26/2013 7:53:41 AM EDT
The only places around here that make you wait to start construction work until 8:00am M-F are in the retirement communities.  7:00am everywhere else.

4 hours and you didn't start seeing things?  I go crazy by the end of the week if I"m getting 4 hours of sleep a night.

In PA the law says 7 am.

To the FSA comments:  not everyone works in the morning, douchebags.

I would assume that that's because of the mid-day heat in that part of the country.

If he is then I am too because I don't get up until 7:30AM to be at work at 8AM.  When you have a <5 minute bicycle commute you don't have to get up at the butt-crack of dawn

Where I live contractors can start at 7 AM. Weekends are OK. In the higher income neighborhoods, you can only work M-F, 8-5. No weekends, no holidays. Some you can work on Saturday but no outside work like jack hammering,excavation, etc.

It's 20 mins earlier for each drink over the legal limit you had last nite.

It's how they're keeping track that always baffles me.
