It's too bad that Deere never made a 572. A 570 is great for maintaining 1 1/2 lane roads(big driveways). 6WD would make pulling ditches a lot easier and a little more traction for the ripper would be nice too.

328's are one of the sweetest looking excavators, the only way they look cooler is if they are tunnel machines.

That grocery store project sounded like one of my projects. Especially painting by flashlight and the mini not fitting through the door. I'm guessing you couldn't find with folding ROPS instead of the roof? 463's are blast working inside buildings like that, it feels weird driving through oversized man doors.

My hat tips to you, you are literally renovating and restructuring inside a delicate egg shell brick building, very hairy stuff.

Very cool pics. Looks like you guys did tons of work on all those projects pictured, and it all looks really good. Are you doing this type carpentry and stuff for a living or just on the side?

This is all side work for now. I work as a Community Development Specialist at a small neighborhood non-profit Community Development Corporation doing development and neighborhood planning. My brother is still in school, so summer is when we do most of our side projects. A few more sets to get me caught up.

The view from my office window.


We had a ribbon cutting for the project the day after the asphalt was put down, and the road was so soft since it was sooo hot the chairs sank in.

The fireplace managed to hold on the wall overnight.

Some waterproofing fun.








It's not on fire. That is just dust.


Who knew using a leaf blower in a house would make such a mess?

Time to clean up the mess in the backyard. I was planning to clean the yard up this weekend anyway, but I got cited by the City the day before for debris, so we had to do a really good clean-up job.
















Changing out a dead battery.


It may be one tough animal, but not with a dead battery.




Time to fill this hole.








Fully loaded dumpster. Only 11.5 tons this time. We are up to 45 tons for the project.
