Pest Control and Vapor Barrier


Diatomaceous earth will keep Florida’s hungry pests down. It is a safe pesticide. Diatomite is also used as an insecticide, due to its physico-sorptive properties. The fine powder absorbs lipids from the waxy outer layer of insects’ exoskeletons, causing them to dehydrate.

Container Shopping on November 23 – Looking for a Black Friday Deal

Tom and Ben visited multiple yards in Jax and Tampa to ascertain the general quality of the available container stock. This is a sample of pics from the second actual shopping trip.  There are many grades of containers available, like lumber. These are number 3; lots of character, definitely “used”.  Tom feels that the most recycled container is a well used container. The process of selecting containers is much like hand-picking lumber. It took many hours. Tom and Ben reviewed dozens of containers, decided which ones were generally suitable, then decided where they would fit best in the Fox Res stack. The small green one with Tom’s name on it is the porch. Delivery is not yet determined, but it will be soon.
