Working in a Winter Wonderland

The “coldest winter in 30 years” as it’s being called, has definitely had an effect on our building project. The temperatures have just been too low for any work to happen safely or effectively. Our work site has been relatively quiet since the cold spell hit around the holidays.

This week however, the weather warmed up enough for things to get going again.
