His company,  Equinox Environmentalfurnishes necessary construction details and documents such as sediment and erosion control plans, grading plans, construction details and specifications.

Janeanne - Scary stuff! Glad there was no damage to the cabin. And oh by the way, my hair turned grey when I got into Real Estate!

we didn't get any of that on our side of the mountain.  I do understand what you are saying about the roadways. I'm going to private email you some questions about  shopping  and restaurants in Asheville.

I have heard stress will turn your hair grey, but not fright.  Hmmm, now where did I put my hair color?

janeAnne - sure hope you find a way to control the water run-off.  We too live be a mountain and folks don't realize that even in a desert there can be serious issues with a micro burst or really heavy monsoon rain. A for white hair....we'll all get there at some point!
