    In all my spare time?

    I'm attempting to finish things up to get away this weekend for 6 days. I have a feeling my laptop will be joining me on vacation.

    I'm finalizing plans to return to Mississippi Coast the end of September for 10 days with a crew of 12 to finish the house we've been working on for 2 years. My goal is to have the family back in by Thanksgiving.

    I've got three major projects on the desk, all of which want to be done this fall, of which two only will be.

    Would I like to write, yeah, but who knows when.

    What software do you use to design your projects?

    We don't. Everything is hand drawn by one of three architects we use. I'm not a big fan of CAD, although it does have its places. The hand drawn plans seem to appeal more to our clients.

    The Ford is done and will be on the road Monday. The only two things left to be done are the chrome grill and Westin step tubes on the sides which will go on sometime next week when the arrive. It will most likely leave for NY a week from Monday for another phase of that project up there. We predict 3 weeks up there this fall and and three more next spring.

    This means the Dodge is available and will go out for sale next week.

    Here are a few of our shop that I quick snapped. It was painted to match our colors, black, cream, and brown. We haven't had the opportunity to landscape/hardscape it yet and I'm not sure when we will. The plans are done and are hanging on the board in the shop. Our schedule has not had any lapses in it this year. It may be winter before we begin any exterior renovations.

    The offices inside will be gutted and done in notty pine with recessed lighting. There will be three offices and a lobby.

    Looks great Jarod. Do you, or even can you for that matter, stuff the enclosed trailer in the shop too?

    We could get it in if we needed too, we'd have to pull a truck out, but it would easily fit. But the only reason it would ever be inside would be for maintenance on it. It's enclosed and locked for the primary reason that we can leave it outside.

    We can get four trucks in there but its tight and you wouldn't be able to work on much. You can move around pretty easily with three trucks in there and have room to work on pretty much anything.

    The pin striping looks nice on the 550.
