It depends on qualification and experience. I've hired lead carpenters for building houses and their skill and knowledge levels would be very close to one another and they made between $800.00 and $900.00 per week or about $40,000.00 to $45,000.00 annually. Then I met one on an eleven story Hotel remodel. He was running 200 carpenters and 300 drywall hangers and finishers. His salary was over $3,000.00 per week..that works out to around $156,000.00 to $160,000.00 per year.not too shabby for a good 'ol boy from Florida.
