Fresh lumber delivery.






















You can see the cranes for the new I-70 Mississippi River Bridge in the distance. Two Manitowoc 2250's, and two 4100's. One of the 4100's is set up as a ringer.








How does that happen?

Well I had the day off of school so I went to work for a concrete contractor that is a friend of mine and that I have worked for in the past. Here are some pics from before today.


He use to have a 1999 bobcat 325 but a few months back it mysteriously cough fire on a rainy night while it was siting on a job site. To this day he still wonders how that happened but o well he bought this NewHolland to replace it it isnt to bad the only complainant is the blade dos not go u high enough and the blade control is in a goffey spot.


I kinda have a love for this 2003 bobcat 763 because it was the first skid steer I ever ran and it is what I learned on.





















11 yards of concrete pored placed and finished by 3 o'clock and the mini excavator, bobcat, and every thing loaded up and taken to the next job and unloaded and ready to start tomorrow successful day in my book.I will get some pics of that up tomorrow and of the next job.

nice pics, keep them coming. Concrete is always something I have thought would be fun to try even though I have heard its no fun to work with at all.

Thanks. Ya concrete is one of those things it isnt bad if you work with it every once and a while but it can get old fast doing it every day.

Here are the only pics I got from today. I didnt have to be to school till 10 today so i went by for a while.


Here is the work truck, it has 240,000 miles on it and still beasting it up. It is a 1997 Ford F350 xlt with the 7.3 powerstroke. It is by far one of my favorite work trucks to have used.


My truck




Yes it is a mess but every thing we need is in there some where lol


The trailer, I really like this trailer I hope to get one like it for myself some day.








It has always been like this at least as long as I can remember.
I will try to get by for some more pics tomorrow.

Not too much side work lately for us. We have built a couple fences and some other random small landscaping stuff, but we do potentially have a good brush clearing and retaining wall job coming up. We'll see. I haven't even seen the site yet, much less bid on it. In the mean time we have been keeping very busy on my house renovation.

I can see the light.








Two load bearing walls taken out.

September 25

We put a couple 2x12 beams in to carry the load from where the load bearing walls were.










Had some sag in the floor, so we had to jack the 2x12's into place.


And a finished beam.
