2013 Scheduling Update!

This has been an interesting spring to say the least. This is my 35th year in Alaska and I don't remember a later break-up. This has slightly altered our schedule and we have been forced to start a few jobs late due to the heavy frost still in the ground but we are also bringing back some past crew members to help us to keep up with the demand. We still have some start dates available for the summer and several in the fall as well. The demand for kits is double what we have experienced in the past which speaks well for our local economy in general. We are holding the kit seminar on June 22 to give kit builders a confidence boost before they start. Don't hesitate to call us about your upcoming project, we'll try to figure a way to accommodate you. I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs. Frederick Douglass

A Shout out to Wasim at Google

It may seem that all huge companies are so big that they have no time for us little guys but I can say that Google adwords has been exactly opposite. You would think a company with annual revenues of 50 billion would be all electronic and impersonal but I have learned that they do listen to us small businesses. I was contacted by email many times by a man named Wasim and I never responded because I thought it was junk mail. Finally, I received a phone call from Wasim letting me know that some of the things I was doing on Adwords was costing me much more than it should and that I should change some keywords and budget amounts. Many of the budget amounts that I was using were too high and he helped me several times over the phone to streamline my advertising campaigns. Not only does he return calls promptly; he also keeps an eye on my account to make sure I am getting optimum bang for my buck. All of this with a cheerful and helpful attitude. To say I am impressed is a vast understatement. 'Thanks Wasim!' Hire character. Train skill. – Peter Schutz
