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.

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.

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..

Knocking some more limbs out of the back yard today. Got burn piles everywhere now. We need some rain so I can get them gone!

Plumbing should be put in this week (hiccup with the bank)

And pour late this week or early next.

There is one old junky blind along the road. Our place is on the west side of the road starting across from the small high fence place with llamas and follows the road around until almost at the concrete bridge. We are on Scottís North Pasture.

In the picture above with the tractor, the brown is the trees the electric people cut on. They were completely brown and I almost decided to cut them but then they started greening back up.

Every tree I cut on is green. I was worried about a few but they are looking good
