Yes, but it may be tricky. Typically lenders like to see that you have been in the same line of work. If your new job includes carpentry you may be ok. There are always little niche programs out there that will accomidate certain situations, up to a point. Because you didn't have a gap in employment history, this will work in your benefit. Also, you may be able to get buy with a letter explaining the circumstances of the transition. If you were in the carpenter's union for a few years, and this job is related to that work, you will be fine. Good luck.

Typically, your lender might want a letter from your employer with a brief description of duties to include carpentry and such.

If you have a lender they should cover that issue.

Good Luck

Provided you can document a 2 year work history and explain any gaps and your credit and debt to income ratio check out you should be okay.

Details matter.

If you can show you have a permanent job with enough income to qualify, you can get a loan.

Credit score matters.
