    Cooter... Thanks for including us in your project, I can feel your sense of Pride in rebuilding this Historic House. I hope whoever will live and raise another Family here will Honor your effort and always remember that someone chose to rebuild rather than replace.

      Thanks for your interest and everybody's kind remarks. The work really is quite gratifying. Over the years I have been involved in a number of historic restorations or conversions as the qualifier and General Contractor on the development side, and when the funding includes bond money or tax credits to go along with conventional money, there is usually a great deal of anxiety that comes with each project. Taking historic tax credits are even more confining. I'm retired now and to date the owner has been financing this work out of pocket and I don't have any financial exposure which is liberating, so it's like getting paid to tear stuff up and have fun putting it back together. The owner and his extended family are great folks.

      If I had to pick pallbearers from Gatorchatter, Cooter would be one of the first mentioned. He’s a good dude.
