Thanks for the great work. Your work and efforts helped us out to allow for the completion of this project. I sincerely hope we have the opportunity to work on another project.

Dear Chad,
Your vision & talent with stone have transformed our Oak Landing property into something really special. Woody and I love all the projects you completed, but this last one - The Walls - is our all-time favorite. You succeeded in tying all the buildings together, & the result is spectacular. A casual observer would think it was all part of our original plan. Who knew? Only you! A big thank-you to you & Duane for all of your hard work. We hope you & your families enjoy a wonderful holiday season.
Carol & Woody

Well, dear Chad -
Come over as quickly as you can to see this gorgeous thing you and the boys have created. It has taken on a life of its own now and turned itself into a fine piece of furniture supported by the strength of this beautiful stone. The combination of tree and rock has settled itself beautifully on top of this little hill, as it if belonged here.
I am still in awe of the amazing work you and your great group of guys did on this project and because I am surrounded by every rock you all placed to hold this ark together, I can always see and remember your smiling faces . . . they are written in the rocks -
Thank you for making the whole thing "happen" -

Wanted to tell you . . . every morning I open the door and see the wonderful masterpiece you created! You are a true artist and I am so very pleased with the creation. It adds to the pleasure I have in my home. May you and Laurie & children have a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy Happy New Year.
Thank you, it was a pleasure working with you!
