January 2012

Well we all survived the holidays and the new year is off to an awesome start!!!
 
We finished up the JC Inspections project with Sierra Construction last week, it was a few weeks behind due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances but it turned out awesome and we and the customer couldn't be happier with the finished product.
 
I know I have missed a few emails and phone calls from some customers and I want to appologize if anyone felt that I wasn't up to par on my attention to their needs.

December, Lime stabilizing

Well I wanted to discuss some types of stabilizing today.
 
We are doing a three acre lay down yard for JC Inspections in Porter and will be doing stabilizing late this week and into next week in preparation for eight inches of crushed concrete.
 
There are many types of stabilizing materials Lime, fly ash, carbide, these can be  either in dry form or a slurry depending on your desired method of application or needs.  once this is determined you can use a mixer much like a overgrown garden tiller to mix the lime in with the soil to the needed depth and compact for the 24 to 48 hour cure time then perform the mixing again for the final time compacting and then allowing the desired finish grade to be achieved for your project.

Its been awhile!

I know I have been away for awhile, since my last post My wife and I have added a baby boy to the family!! He was born on September 6th @ 9 Lb 3 ounces.   He is growing so fast its hard to keep up with him. 
 
 
 Work wise we have been really busy doing all types of large and small projects, recently we have completed a 1 acre pond For John Walker and his family in Cimmaron on 1488 done a few lot clearing projects a few home pads and most recently are in the middle of doing a three acre lay down/ pipe yard for JC Inspections in Porter off of Gene Campbell and East Industrial Parkway!

June. pond construction

Well these past few months have been busy, my wife is pregnant and were having a boy in September.  I just wanted to touch on a few tips and pointers for pond construction today.
 
When digging your pond you should select a naturally low area that can help with natural drainage to your new pond, when you start digging you need to take the first few feet or however much natural topsoil you have on  the location of the pond and set it aside for dressing the area around the pond after the excavation is complete.

Constructing a House,Barn,Shop or Mobile Home Pad

Its been awhile, I have been extremely busy in Kurten Tx.  I want to explain some methods and ways to construct a House or Mobile Home pad today.  There are many ways to do this and the below are a few methods I employ in doing a house or mobile home,shop pad etc.  These are my opinions and I suggest anyone to do your own research and seek advice or ask questions when undertaking this or any other project of dirt work.
 
When Constructing a pad for a home first you need to determine where the pad will be placed and be sure that it is fairly level, once this is accomplished you will need to strip the area  4 to 6 inches.

January 2011

Well Its the New Year and its off to a good start!  This particular entry I will be explaining the methods and levels of Land Clearing in comparison to basic Underbrushing.
 
Land Clearing is the complete and or selective clearing of a piece of property for recreational,Agricultural or commercial use depending on the property owners desired end use.
 
Generally Land clearing is done with a bulldozer or excavator the size or number of pieces of equipment use will depend on the size of the property being cleared.

December is almost gone

Well it's getting closer to Christmas everyday, hope everyone's ready for next weekend.  We are going to be busy the last weeks of the year and looks like the first month of the New year.
 
I am going to start explaining some of the terms and methods used in our business to help people gain a better understanding of how things are done.
 
This week I will explain Underbrushing.  When you do underbrushing, it is the removal of all small trees bushes and brush usually up to about 6" or customer requirements.
