    The economy here is wild, that's for sure! We were awarded another large job earlier today, and trying to figure out how we will get it handled. We have 4 construction crews, and might have to bump to 5 to handle all of the stuff in the pipeline & anything additional that gets added on for the year. Our 4 crews are already booked up for nearly the entire year. All of this year's work is from existing clients, so it's not something I prefer to say no to. We don't bid much work to GCs or owners that we don't already have a relationship. I feel this is one of the major key issues that has led to our success. Great clients that have us perform incredible jobs, but also are experienced enough to treat us well and pay promptly. Cash flow is key with new construction, and our clients have been instrumental in helping us grow debt free (for the most part).

    Who are the people at the top keeping the ball rolling? Can you give us a break down of the key people and what they do to be a instrumental role in the success ?

    Poured the foundation today for our new service building at our office. Couldn't have asked for better weather. Low 70s with a good amount of humidity. Raining the next few days, so that will surely help the concrete cure.

    How are you liking the Kubota... I'm sure you will agree, it's a beast!

    I like it so much, I'm going to get a second one this next week. Love our new SVL95, but I'm going to get a SVL75 as its a little easier for some of our "smaller jobs".

    She's a beauty!

    Just had this one dropped off at the shop a moment ago. Went ahead and purchased a landscape rake to go with it, in addition to the HD forks & tooth bucket. Now, each one of our crews has their own machine, which will help us immensely with coordination & production.

    If yall havent tried a Kubota machine, I would highly recommend that you change that. We've owned a few Bobcats for the past several years and have had alot of trouble with them. After trying several other manufacturers, I decided to go with the Kubotas. These machines crush the competition in power & cab roominess/comfort.

    Sweet! I'm happy with my Kubota. My first choice was Bobcat. Then... I noticed that the Bobcats had Kubota engines! So I decided to go with the Kubota. I really enjoyed the room and ice cold AC in the cab. Just did the 60 hour service on the hydraulic oil filter.

    Kept a crew back at the shop today to help frame up our new service building. This is about 5 hours in, and should have the framing finished by the EOD.

    Is that building pre-fabricated?
    We have been looking into building a shop. I like the fact that you can build to your needs.

    How is the whole process going?
