It seems to me that it has been quite a while since I have been able to get to this site and I must say that it is good to relax and take a few minutes to catch up. I don't know what has happened but here in central Texas, things are going full speed ahead. Between the landscape lighting and holiday lighting we have been hard pressed to keep up. Besides the normal business, we were asked to participate in the television show, Extreme Makeover, Home Edition. This was last weekend and was a great experience. It was 5 days from the time that I heard about the project it to it's completion. Talk about pulling your hair out!! We had to design, order parts, receive and then install the system. It also had to be an extreme system!! We headed out to the project on Saturday morning at 3:30 am and got back at 2:30 am on Sunday morning. We were following the irrigators to run our home runs and then put in our fixtures as soon as they put in the plants. Anyway, here are a few pics. We still have to go back and do the night adjust. They had far too many lights around (for filming) for us to adjust the system. I will post some shots after we make sure all is well. The first pic is (from left) Paul Weller, Me, Paul DiMeo, (one of the cast) Paul Jr. and Andy Mendez. This is my crew and Paul. Then it's our rig in front of the new home. The next one is Jr installing a fixture in a tree. Then it's the old house that was torn down on Tuesday of last week. The last one is the cast of the show in front of the old house. I will post some night shots after we make our final adjustments. We will return to the home tomorrow to add some Christmas lighting as well. I would like to wish all of my fellow landscape lighting professionals a very merry Christmas. May God bless all of you and I pray that you have a wonderful and prosperous new year.
