I would get on instagram, look for high end builders in your area. See what there doing. But there's some really cool stuff out there. Here's one from NS builders

Three beam lines 81' in total 11 columns.
We removed the old beams, installed the new beams. Then jacked everything up. It came out great.

You could try to take some blue painters tape and wrap the pencil to increase its diameter. Or see if you replace the pencil if you have the same issue. Anyhow hope that helps

Your the second person to suggest that too me. I think I'am going to try it, will see. I have a mini home office. So I file all my receipts/records at the shop, where I have a XXL file cabinet. Currently at the end of the day when I get to the shop, I unload the truck/trucks file any receipts for the day, and then load up the truck/trucks for the following day. I am going to look into what it will cost for a cheap computer, scanner and probably a shedder, to keep at the shop. I am going to be moving into a new role at work and I know there's going to be a ton of more paperwork involved. Also I want to track job progress more thoroughly. My goal is to have a large library, of past jobs to be able to look through to help with the estimating process. I know my current process needs improvement at my current level of paperwork.
So if there's any other suggestion, I am all ears.

I am trying to put a couple systems in place
#1 preconstruction, construction, finished (which I can then see exactly how many hours went into a job. Where did we come short, where did we crush it. Etc)
#2 receipts, rental agreements, maintenance warranty, insurance docs, everything. I fill up a whole filling cabinet over the course of a year. Then when I need to find a receipt for something. I need to go through a few months sometimes close to a Years worth of records.

What is your system? I think there might be some fastpipe in my future.
