Does Build With Jerry do Remote Location Construction in Texas?

This is actually a question I here often. Seems now days that many contractors do not want to venture very far from town. I really do not know why, maybe they worry about what they will eat for lunch… LOL.

My answer to this question is absolutely… I love building out in the country. Makes for a peaceful day…

Except for the occasional rattler…

And the wild Pigs…

I have build many projects out in the middle of nowhere, but recently I discovered exactly where the middle of nowhere was…

Remote Location Construction in Texas… Middle of Nowhere..

I contracted a job at a hunting camp north of Abilene. After you leave the blacktop highway their is about 5 miles of dirt road to the property gate. After you enter the gate you are looking at another 5 miles of not as good dirt road to the Lodge. This is where the fun begins. Now their is another 5 miles of…. dirt road … no, dirt trail… well maybe…. cow trail… and sometimes that is an exaggeration… When I first started the job I was taking a route that was not too bad, but it did require crossing over a small creek twice. Water was about a foot deep at both locations.

Then it decided to rain. Like 20 something inches in a couple weeks. Now the creek was a river. The cow trail was a muddy river.

This required simply not working for a couple weeks, then taking a different route that goes up over a mountain around the river… This entire adventure was quite interesting for me, since I only have a 2 wheel drive truck.

I might also mention that once you go through the gate onto the property your cell phone is worthless… Cell service simply does not exist. So… if you do get lost, or stuck in the mud, or bit by a rattler, or any of the thousand other things that can happen out their…. well their is no 911.
