It's On!

It looks like winter is getting here, slowly, but it is coming. Soon we will be able to access projects that we couldn't get to in the summer.
I don't expect we will be able to drive on the local lakes or rivers until well after Thanksgiving.
We have a number of projects scheduled for this winter but we still have a few openings left.
A few tips for preparing your lot for winter building:

-Leave the snow on the lot and try not to drive snowmachines across the building site. This compacts the snow and allows the frost to go deeper into the ground, making it more difficult to dig pilings.
-Avoid scraping the organics off. The organic layer is a good insulator and helps keep the frost from going too deep.

These may seem like minor things but they make a big difference when it comes time to excavate.
