Planning

Posted on July 3, 2015 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (1)

     Building a home in our beautiful mountains can be extremely rewarding and at times challenging.  Our experience tells us that it all begins with the lay of the land and the necessary planning required to take full advantage of the natural beauty while providing needed access and proper drainage.

     Recently we have been getting several calls for us to help with drainage issues.  First, we should point out that water has a great tendency to run down mountains...:)  If your desire is to not have water where you don't want it then particular planning with experience is required.  Fortunately, we can help with most drainage issues, however, some become very costly.  If things are done at construction time, the cost is usually much less.

     If you have drainage issues, we are glad to help.  However if you are at the getting started stage of building, please consult with us for two reasons...1) the consultation is free and 2) we can help make your dreams free of washes, gulleys and standing water...well at least not standing where you don't want it to stand.

Digging Dirt

Posted on May 12, 2015 at 6:25 PM Comments comments (0)

     We get questioned quite often on why we like digging in the dirt.  At first, the question seems a bit more like why in the world would you want to do it with the people already having decided it was a less than rewarding job.    

     Well, the first answer is we don't do it for the money as there are likely other things we have experience doing that would be more lucrative.

     The real answer is that we do it becuse we love it.  The joy of helping people realize their dreams, the satisfaction of seeing the joy on their faces, the pride we feel taking something from less than desireable to beautiful and the resulting thank you's...well, that makes it all worth while.

     Digging in the dirt, moving dirt, building walls to hold the dirt all add up to an art.  One of our team members is a true artist when it comes to dirt.  That may make you smile upon reading, however, you will really be smiling once you see his work in action. 

     So why dirt you ask?  Hopefully, this blog helps answer the question and more importantly you will want to talk to us about your dirt dreams.  We talk for free and we dig for dollars.
