they take trees seriously around here, unless it's a cedar then they want to raze them.

Austin requires trees to have 2x material banded around the trunks to stave off damage. Is that protocol in other cities around the country?

You have to do that with most tree in Horseshoe bay, and marble falls.

Marble falls wanted to make it where you couldn't cut oaks down. That city councilman lost a lot of business, wasn't reelected and didn't get anything else passed ever again. Lol

Everyone wants cedar gone so it doesn't suddenly become endangered species habitat.

I hate the bugs, we have emerald ash borers that mean you may as well cut down every ash. I think I have 2 more to go. Even worse, they'll get into maples.

Sorry to hear you're"re losing some of the softwood forest, that stuff always seems to spread.

They finished in one day by the way.

The man in the excavator was the son of my grandfather's ex-partner. They work together for a few years , and were great friends throughout

They died one month apart last year

Re: Headquarters


Pour day. Not looking forward to framing 102+ ....

I haven't had a set of bags on until 2 weeks ago for about a year… I guess almost 2 years, when I built my house

I'm glad I lost about 30 pounds, but I am going to do metcon in the gym instead of compound lifts for a few weeks and no BJJ lol
