Yeah, another one of them Texans. You love us and you know it. I've been in the construction industry for over 40 years. I occasionally teach structural foundation classes at the local college when they can talk me into it. I was the head of Quality Control at the 5th largest builder in Texas for many years. I've worked with more engineers than I thought was possible in the search for the best construction methods and then having to sell that to the CEO. I'm proficient at building methods in the South and have little expertise to offer about a basement since we don't have them.
See ya on the boards!
