Man cave update. We had a few days at the man cave this week. The doors and windows came so we put them in. Then the client decided he would like a porch added to the Back. What? The roofer is coming next week,... So it had to be done. Now we have to get back to Eagle lake before that client realizes we were gone!!! Geesh !! I hope it goes smooth because its décembre now, and the weather could really slow us down!! Im not worried, but the client is! and I said all of that in a European accent. LOL

I was pricing a Cabin for a fellow in Alaska this morning, and it made me think of the last time we built in the USA, it was 2008, Obama was elected in while I was there supervising the re-erection of this chalet in Colorado. It was Situated at 8500 feet in the area known as little Switzerland near Ridgway CO , 400ft was just in the driveway, from the Chalet, a 2000 ' deep valley, and then up to the highest peak in North America, MT. Sneffles over 14,000' what a view! http://www.davidsonloghomes.com/portfolio/colorado/
