Built To Last

Built To Last  Like most things, not all fences are made alike. So, what do you do when you have to replace something you originally did 35 years prior?  You build the replacement to do the same. Like this dogear redwood Tahoe's crews constructed to honor its predecessor in Carson City. Steel posts set in concrete 6 feet on center. Bottom 2x12 kicker board. 4-2x4 rails and 1x6 dogear boards.  The customer's landscaping and yard decorations were put back in place to tie both old and new together.   Yeah, it may be overbuilt. But it's built to last.Built To Last

Job To Remember

Corrugated sheeting with redwood, box framing on pressure treated posts and bottom kicker by Tahoe Fence in Tahoma (El Dorado and Placer County.)Job To Remember

Some jobs bring back fond memories. Either it was your 1st build on your own, an awesome build that made you stand out from the competition, great customers, etc.

This one was the first I built with my kid. Not really a kid anymore as much as a teenager. But it was fun working together. And couldn’t be prouder of the hustle, effort, and initiative they showed this season in the office and in the field.

Yep, this is a job to remember.

Celebrating The Gridiron

Celebrating The Gridiron

It’s back, football season is back.

In honor of the gridiron, term referring to football played in North America, Tahoe has its own gridiron style fence. Like football fields up until the 1920s which had a checkerboard pattern (gridiron), this Tahoe Fence uses a gridiron style welded-rod utility panel. The panels are sandwiched between redwood framing and pressure treated posts.

It’s Hot and We’re Cool with That

It’s Hot and We’re Cool with That

This is our ’56 Chevy at Tahoe’s yard. Our dad had to have it because it was the make and model of car he learned to drive with.

Difficult to justify keeping around the fence yard, until you see our kids fall in love with it like our father.

No AC, but you have windows you can direct the airflow into the cabin. Just drive faster for more air. Plus, the car is a classic. As good a reason as any to wash it and make it shine.

And you can have someone post a selfie of you legally driving without seatbelts (it’s a classic and has lap-belts.)

Yeah, it’s hot and we’re cool with that.

Have a safe and fun time this August at all the area car shows.

“Adaptation”

Tahoe’s word for today is “adaptation.”

With prices and availability for material continuing to be far out there, adaptation is key.

Tahoe has customers who are waiting for heavy (old Tahoe), grape stake cedar. The problem is we’ve been waiting months for a unit at a time. And the units are outrageously expensive.

The solution, adapt to the situation. Tahoe has reclaimed grape stakes. They’re what remain from previous projects and tear outs but are in excellent condition. 1st, Sort for height and condition. 2nd, Remove the nails without leaving hammer marks. 3rd, bundle units.

In A Pickle About What To Do This Summer?

The weather is heating up, so get outside and enjoy all the gifts our area has to offer. There’s beaches & lakes, river rafting, fishing, golfing, disk golf, trails to bike and hike.
 
And if you’re still in a pickle about what to do this Summer, try Pickleball. It’s one of the fastest growing sports. It was created in 1965 in the state of Washington. There are no dress code requirements. You play on a court about 1/4 the size of a tennis court. And the pickleball you use travels about 1/3 the speed of an average tennis ball.
