    Amazing as always, I also see a few shots that were posted here on your new box. Whoever takes those pictures does a fantastic job at capturing everything.

    Here's a couple updated ones on the current project we are on. The wall work, flatwork, brickwork, steps, and fencing are all our responsibility. The paver product is neat and we are planning on using it on another upcoming project. It still needs cleaned and sanded but you can get the preliminary images of what it looks like. We'll be pulling out of there in the next two weeks onto the next one.

    The pipeline looks very strong for the fall for us as we've signed a couple other neat projects.

    The new website is getting its final tweaking and should be live in the next three weeks. It looks really cool and will put our current one to shame, though many seem to like that one.

    Headed to another equipment auction tomorrow to see about more equipment. It'll be interesting to see what things bring. All indications are not much.

    speaking of equipment, did you ever make a move on a machine? Or still long term renting the deere and komatsu?

    -Hey Jarod

    What are those steps made of? Almost looks like a composite material or is it concrete??

    The grey ones are real stone, flamed on two sides.

    We still typically have 3-4 machines we rent. We will probably buy a wheeled shop machine that may go out in the field on occassion. Looking at a CAT 262B.

    Why rent? The CT332 blew out a hydraulic wheel motor and send debris into the pumps. $11,500 to fix. We had a replacement machine the same day delivered. Not on my tab. Track machines are high maintenance and for what we rent them for it doesn't make sense to buy them.

    For a large operation like yours that could drop off at the drop of a hat, I totally understand why you rent..

    I was just asking because I am curious how you handle large purchases/decisions like that.. Plus, I like shiny new equipment.. :laugh:

    (not saying your work will or is stopping, apparently you got it stacked up! but anything is possible)
