Been a while, Thanks Guys

Finally convinced myself that I should update my progress, if for nothing else as an attempt to boost my own interest in the biz.
Irrigation played a big role for me this year, it really soured my outlook on mowing and Helped me buy my first home, its not a McMansion, but im positive now that its better than my earlier ideas about living solely in an airstream lol.

Want to Focus the brevity of text today on saying thanks for your advice and knowledge getting me started.

In no particular order : John Jr(& sr.), Pete, Mr. Leary, Waterlogged, Dana, Boots, Hosk, AI, Argos, BCG, txgrassguy, any too many others.

Few Pictures of the house, sits on an acre (hoping to demolish current home build 4 new ones and lease out, not bad for 22!

Excited for the days ahead

Have a care on how many units you build on a single lot, or even adjoining lots, lest you fall under rent control (local mileage, of course, will greatly vary)

Looks like a great place. I bought my first home at 26. Sure seemed like a long time ago...wait it was. Eventually tore it done and built my current home. Best thing I ever did was buy my own home. I have ten acres and built a rental. Paid for the rental with cash. Makes my mortgage very inexpensive.

Good luck.

I think I can, time will tell, first i need to send Dominos pizza to the Man who's govt position can provide me with sewer.

Supposedly my place being annexed by college station 3 years ago, I am supposed to have all city sewer within atmost 4 years.

Business is very good, alot of repair work.... we seem to have become the valve replacment guys, probably 80% of my work lately.

Tell me what u think...

Soon! My current remote, travis, gave me a 30 day notice on 8/1 so I need another good one in about 9 days.

Where has the wind blown you lately?

Well done, Rhettman, good to hear from you. At such a young age, keep cooking and you will retire early and establish the Irrigation Forum old geezers home! Get the basics completed, then you can have a Airstream.
