    It would be so cool to work on a project of this magnitude.

    Wouldn't be even better, as the client, to afford a project of this magnitude ;)

    Nice job guys, lookin' real good.

    How many sheets of quikrock are being used for this project? I hope Ray got a bulk discount! :eek:
    Looks like the cave leads to the outside??? ???

    Ray got 50 sheets of Quickrock and as of this morning we have 5 left to finish. Don't know about a bulk discount, but the next order should sure the heck come as some type of gratuity discount after Quikrock fotzed up and made the delivery 6 days late screwing everybody on time.

    The cave does lead to the outside and behind it are 3- 5x12 doors which can open in unison to create a 15x12 opening. That is where all the mounts including lifesize giraffe, hippo, Rhino, etc. will be brought through when the expansion on the house is complete in early 2011. The cave swings to the inside of the trophy room.........literally.....su you have plenty of openings for large mounts. Yes, you heard that right, the whole cave moves ;) :D

    Daniel, Kyle and myself worked till midnight last night playing catch up with the rock. John Brown has been busting his arse, Ray and mike are awesome and we have 2 carpenters from here in Dallas who have made our lives easier. The one thing we were really lacking this week was Brushy.......that kid worked his butt off when he was here and his attitude was the best...even with me messing with him :) We've been staring around 7ish in the morning so needless to say, I am a sore mofo today. I took more pics last night and Ken will load them this morning. We only have until tomorrow afternoon left here and it has flown by. We'll be back in teams in October, January and so on. It has been cool as hell. I will give a final update in the morning and then I gotta fly.

    Everybody, I hate to sound repiticious, but every day I take pics with my iphone, ken uploads and does the posting for me.....thats while he's running WASCO, The Taxidermy.net and dealing with the reflection off the back of Rick Carters head.......THANK YOU so much to Ken for taking his time to do this and thank you Ray Hatfield for allowing me to work with you and for you and allowing me to share these pics with anybody who wants to see them.....the simple quiet confidence that exudes speaks volumes :)

    I know they are using the quickrock? system and looks like the expanding foam in cans between the pieces but what are they using to get the coloration? The powdered paints you mix with water and spray on??

    Looks great!!! I wish they would film a panoramic clip and post it when everything is done and all mounts are in place!!
