Beyond the Build


We Need Another Groundhog

Earlier this week, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, predicting 6 more weeks of cold weather. I don’t think I’m alone in saying no one wanted him to see his shadow. This winter has been the most brutal in the last 20 years, and we are all feeling it.  It seems like we need a break.

We recently encapsulated this building in Ohio. We did everything right, but Mother Nature had different plans.

While we all try to work around winter, sometimes the elements win. The good news is, we’re all in it together. The overly harsh winter means we’ll cherish spring even more.
