To be partnered with thoughts our team members or professional builders are angry mob rulers. With an ATV. Primarily associated. With those associations. Their found our foundation is integrity and customer satisfaction. As the residential housing industry. Continues to forge collaborative local community partnerships. The ultimate result will be a game changing post disaster. Reconstruction system that is more expedient. And less costly to taxpayers. With less red tape. In September 2016. We came together as a home building industry to address that post disaster recovery after many lessons learned over a multitude of disaster events. How we develop the business model. The created a seamless collaboration. Between the homeowner the contractor. The insurance and the mortgage lender. As advocates for those affected in the disaster areas we are able to assess the property damage and communicate. For all the parties and they less adversarial. Environment. In addition we are able to assist homeowners. In locating gap funding sources and offer additional professional services that expedite. The process. Once the homeowner has chosen what they being.

The flood victim and the the rebuilding of their property. I'll we also provide independent third party quality inspection they control services. And may and it's the money. On the project dislike if you went to a bank and had a construction home that had to be inspected before the contractor could draw you right money. So we protect. Everybody's values and the time.

And has the size of its common relaxing and that's what we're all about. More atmosphere we provide in your backyard in her own. It's pretty much about our relaxation thing down haven't found it we're actually extending our our inside living death cult and works. Haven't. Our culture so great for that would look the plane his family friends over at. He had it swim or so court just hang out in the chairs or endorse this coming years afterwards that. The flowers are blooming in the of course Betty Currie so what are the words would have some of the outdoor kitchen project yell at recent work with that. Kind of stick out you must admit that that's really great idea. Well a lot of the Hitler gravitate towards the it riddles and power burners really popular nowadays or get power burners here. It's a built and turner actually doubles as a pro for earth earth so. Actually provides the customer with the music but it Lou he could no longer racket up and actually do a Crawford long.

Actress spent some time and his truth yes now I'll confessed that I'm with summit next week I'll love you technology. And Jamie data from a dynamic audience video. It just has some really neat things in his boot what it thinks it. There's a first year in our region that you negotiated pretty hard to get this in for this show right. It was pretty hard and pull some strings and got Sony's brand new short through laser projector all trait he. It allows a projector to sit right up against the walls a piece of furniture and not have to redesign enrollment. But the project in the back of the room and run wires and have hanging from the ceiling and almost with a piece of furniture. But the clarity of this project in the size of the screen yeah he can do so 120 inch screen. Sit in about fifteen inches from the front all at the present I mean it literally takes about thirty minutes setup then next immunity and 120 its image and called for a HD four K super bright it almost looks a lot of people ask me is that a TV like now it's actually projection that that's a career. And we you know sometimes you get off to the site expect some some debtor nation that there is no it's better yet actually typical LE -- actually and to distort a little bit when you know angle this projection system. You you don't want to 170 degrees off. And it it does not distort the picture changed the color anything it forgive me. It really does it lifted its works the entry teachers to come see this in and talk to Jamie and his team because they are the technology experts and every year weak home automation it's taking leaps and balance in in the availability the technology it's they are the ease of use for them they end user. Even the options this what are the latest trends were seen armaments. Latest thing we're seeing this year is actually waste integration with and the on Alexa. Haven't working at the sure Roman actually have a working them out and unable to tell elect so what I wanna have happened in my house than it's. Really a stunningly accurate is that seamless yes it's it's pretty amazing I thought it was going to be a few little hiccups be in the and it just got reduce. Introduced to market but. On everything have anything to do so far is turn on lights. Alexa turn on nighttime lows and it turns off the TV's low which she terms a politely get ready for baton pretty amazing that release things when those things can you control that. You can do light thermostats. Motorized shades audio video. Security cameras pool means pretty much anything in your house that electronically can tie and you can have it all works seamlessly. And I think that's been people's biggest concern in the passes. And even like their teams and ultimately report pop remotes hang around which program to what oppress them and kind of do this and it was lectures ago. But now with today's technology it's all different yeah that's the greatest thing you know my house that the goodnight but. Hammered the good that I hit that night but it turns up all electronics in the house. Re adjust thermostats turn off the lights lowers the shades turn on the alarm in America that locks the doors to you all with one button. Rumored to go to bed it's it's the greatest thing I know it seems kind of lazy but it's more about convenience and just making sure all those things happen to you know forget them. Absolutely and you're right because. Particularly like my wife when she goes to pitch so like 22 did you switch it you can offense in this and that's one thing yeah I mean you can imagine a three story house trying to get ready for that you walk around her flight solid stuff. Now like to its list of folks can't see their group dynamic audio and video game again and his team or the experts.
