Due to both the immense size of Taipei 101 and the fact that it sits just over 600ft from a major fault line, engineers had no choice but to install one of this size at a cost of $4m. Too heavy to be lifted by crane, the damper was assembled on site and hangs through 4 floors of the skyscraper. it can reduce the building’s movement by up to 40%.

Last night the sun set on day 199! With just one week until Deb's Birthday party, this is cutting it really close. Of course we expected the pool to be done long before this date... but you know how it goes.
I have had a tough time keeping this whole thing under wraps for the last 21 days! I have to post something, so here you go. This trailer contains 10,000 square feet of sod. Yesterday morning, no lawn. Yesterday night, instant lawn.
Here is what the yard looked like Thursday morning! We are down to the last touches. Landscape lighting, the fire pit, a few plants that need replacing, some fine tuning for the whole yard, and a final deep cleaning of the pool and decking.
The plants are all in, and with just a few exceptions seem to be doing well. Summer has arrived here in Idaho,. So if you are a plant that just left your cozy, moist nursery, I'm sure hitting the 95 degree, full sun oasis we call our back yard can be a shock!
