    I still have a few things I want to do. Like adding a 'current news page', and a 'pictures' page, or maybe a scrolling pictures section, but for now it will work. Eventually I want to switch to a flash website... but not enought time to learn that right now. I did borrow the layout from another LCO- but I think I changed if enough to be my own.

    Tell me what you think.:drinkup:

    Its a bit hard to read due to the white print. maybe do a box with some type of coloring and then have the text in that with the pages background being the grass(which i really liked) If at all maybe get some pictures of your work. but looks really good.

    Ok thanks for the input. I will make another version with text boxes having a different color. Or maybe just get rif of the black all together, maybe go with a green?

    Anyways I will make a couple different versions and poll a couple people about which is easier to read and looks best.


    (I wont change the actual site until I decide on a final change- if any)


    Thanks again for your input- I was kind of wondering about the ease of reading myself.

    I didn't have a problem reading the print. I love the grass blades background, and your "specials" page seems to have something for everyone.

    Good Job!

    Call today (218) XXX-XXXX to make your neighbors jealous! Sounds corny but it may work. Also, keep in mind that estimates are free regardless, at least in this industry. Other than that, I like the color and concept! Really neat and too the point!

    ok I think I got the background problem fixed, and a few other little things I saw.


    Do you guys still think the white text is hard to read?

    How much did it cost to make and maintain?

    OK I'm done working on it for now. I changed a few things and still need to do some wording changes, but nothing major. I think the visual is good now.


    It cost nothing. Its hosted by Microsoft Small Business Live for free. And I did the work building it- it took a few days. I did 'borrow' a layout, but I changed 90% of it. Basically I only used the table setup from a different site.
