Dryer Fire - Don't be next!

Laundry Rooms are the number one origin of home fires and Lint is the number 1 item ignited (see diagrams 3 and 4) 
Picture one shows a clogged dryer vent we just discovered. Fortunately, the owner noticed lint was coming through a bathroom exhaust fan when the dryer was running. We added an additional lint trap above the dryer and re-directed the duct to a new wall vent separating it from the bathroom exhaust duct. 

There are many dryer vent cleaning kits available if you are handy, or if not, hire a professional duct cleaning company to inspect and clean yours regularly.

For more facts,check out this report from FEMA;http://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/statistics/v13i7.pdf

How do you know if you may have a clog?
Clothes take longer and longer to dry;
Clothes don't fully dry;
Clothes are hotter than normal at the end of the drying cycle;
The outside of dryer gets very hot;
The outside exhaust vent flapper does not open very much;
Laundry room becomes more humid than it is usually;
Burnt smell is evident in the laundry room.

Barn Storming

A bad storm last week ripped some tin off this barn. We did an emergency repair soon after and today, the crew rebuilt the damaged roof. I must say, the new rake trims are probably straighter now, than they have been since horses were used to plow the nearby fields.

Kind Praise

Some kind praise we received:

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for the incredible work you've done at our multiple various locations. We've really enjoyed working with you, from start to finish. 
To begin, I'm particularly pleased with how thorough and prompt your proposals have been. And when it has come time to complete the work, your group has been quite flexible with getting in and out of our Facilities with minimum down time for construction. Most importantly, your company does a beautiful job and we've been delighted with the results. You deliver a quality product at a very competitive price.
We couldn't ask for any more."

O say can you see by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Yes, it sure does! Have a great 4th!!
