L Squared. Only have built one house and my father-in-law hooked them up with that one. IT is on our cattle lease. Weekend house that we would easily live in. They do good work and my wife has harassed them with calls/questions. 2 good brothers.

Wife just called me super excited. She got the call that we can finally close on the 21st. only 20 days behind schedule but it's all good.

So I have 2 full days and 2 1/2 days left to work out there. Couldn't be more excited. Construction pictures to come soon.

We stopped last night after having dinner with the in laws to see the light. First time Iíve seen it since we got it. It is bright! I am very impressed with how low it is on the pole and how much light it puts out.

Only took 2 months of me being out there working to see the first snake. Guess I ran him over last night when we went out there. Didnít see it til I was leaving today.

The place is really coming along. I agree with Jason you have great in-laws, known them most of my life. I hunt north of Sheridan off of 273 across from OakRidge Ranch. We need to try and get together sometime.

Thank you. We honestly couldn't have done this without them. They are amazing.

Do you have blinds you can see from the road? I drive back there sometimes trying to get my kids to sleep..


We close today. It is getting real!
