Lol, I was watching that and was like, I know who that is. Good job! almost blew it by stacking those cars to close to the digging area, thank goodness that old timer crushed those two barrels. Otherwise I figured you crush the old timers. I mean who doesn't want to watch heavy equipment destroying stuff!

Thanks! Yea what the show didn't explain was I had never even sat in a telehandeler before. I got shown the controls by a CAT rep that was onsite and I had literally 5 min to practice, so our strategy was for me to just get the cars unstacked and put them anywhere as fast as I could and Justin would smash them out of the way, and he did. haha. I think they did a really good job with the show. Thought it came out great! And I had a blast!

Oh yea no doubt, I never used one either. That's a once in a lifetime opportunity, it looked like a blast. I guess your friends with Justin and the other guy, that was a good team who could handle equipment. The green team thought they had it wrapped up, I was rooting you guys on, you know the hardscpapers have to stick together.

Well its been a while since I posted anything to this thread. I hope everyone had a good year last year.

Here are a few photos from some jobs we did last year. Ill get some more up in the next few days.

First one is of an indoor putting green inside a large high tech company's offices. They were expanding and completely redoing the downstairs of a large mill building. We used custom made grass with the company's colors and logo in it. After we finished they painted a mural on the walls around it to make it look like you were at a golf course. Sorry no pictures. To go along with the putting green they also were putting in a full bar, pool tables, climbing wall, cigar room and a slide from the second floor to the first. Must be nice to work there!









Second set of pictures is from a patio we installed under a porch. Don't ask why they wanted it there we tried to convince them to move it out into the back yard but this is where they wanted it. They wanted it under so they could stay out of the sun and leave room for the grand kids to play on the lawn.











Last set is of a more normal project.

I might be a bit concerned about where the water drains. Kinda weird that someone would want a patio under there. Why not out on level ground and have a gazebo if they wanted to be out of the sun. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

How difficult was the excavation for the patio under the porch?

The patio has a good pitch away from the foundation, and we made a berm around the walls to keep water from flowing in. In theory it should see very very little water because it is covered overhead.

Excavation was not to bad. Just slow. I was able to reach under with the machine almost the entire way.

You didnt put a drain and drywell in there?

I was wondering where you we're at, long time no see. Glad you're back.

Everything else looks great. Who manufactures those grey pavers? Need to blend the pallets a little better.
