That's what the archt designed to mirror an old deteriorating wall which will blend into the fieldgrass when.it germinates. Everyone on site seems to like it and it will blend into the softscape when done.

It's called making it look established, like it's been there forever. Like building a house that's structurally sound, but looks like it's old...

That traditional feel is very popular, especially on that job where nothing screams "clean lines"

And you mow grass in New Jersey

There, both statements sound just as funny to me.

The distressed look is quite popular. I know when it comes to painting alot of people like the distressed look for cabinets and door ways. I think that wall looks awesome like that. I love your work!!!

If you just read the title to the thread and maybe the first page it is an easy mistake to make---I get a kick out of it since it's been happening for several years straight now.

Good days....bad days

I will assure you we are not immune to mechanical failures, as most companies aren't. This morning #3 decided to throw a temper tantrum as we had a crank bearing fail. Unfortunately by the time it was finished it took the whole engine along with it.

Good news: The SNG is electric, which means we were able to take the body off of it with a blown engine and put it on another truck. A standard dump with materials in it, would have been a mess right now.

Bad news: A new 3126 CAT engine is $17k. I managed to locate a good used one for $4500 down in Maryland and we should have it dropped in and back up and running by the end of Friday or Saturday. The new truck won't be on the road until Wednesday next week so it'll be a truck jockeying nightmare for the next 72 hours, but it is what it is.

When they go they go.....but life goes on.
