I think that probably - like sports, cops, firemen, the military - you are still experiencing a bit of hetero propoganda in a 'masculine' profession... there are probably a lot more people there than you think.
I have dated a couple of gay construction guys, one who worked as a high steel foreman, one who was a framer and roofer. The contractor who built my home in VT is also gay, as are the two lesbians who do my landscaping in VT.
I know of gay owned and operated construction companies in NY, Chicago, Atlanta, and LA because they are big supporters of the gay communitty in those cities.
Like every other facet of life, Gay people are EVERYWHERE; even if they are not totally out about it.
BTW - http://www.lambdabusiness.com/page-business.cfm?code=Contractors&location=209&searchtext=
lists quite a few gay and lesbian owned/friendly construction companies in CA.
I only saw a couple small ones listed for NV, but I am sure there must be many more.
I tend to notice gay owned/friendly busnesses more because I go out of my way to patronise them and spend money in the communitty.
