Baton Rouge Luncheon

On July 9, we are hosting a luncheon at the LA House on the campus of LSU for anyone who is available to come. It will be a lunch and learn session. I will have several displays of the Cable-Tite system for you to see, and explain how it works. One of the most exciting things for you might be our Partner Program, which I will discuss. It's a way to get started with Cable-Tite in your next project at a savings, and to establish a long term relationship with us for promotions.

Seating is limited, so please call for reservations. 615-451-9080

3. We had an excellent meeting with two prospective customers, Adam Pittman at Weyerhauser and Lynn Taylor at Taylor Made Plans.

Adam was impressed with our hurricane tie-down system that uses cables for uplift protection. He was impressed that they replace the troublesome threaded rods. He intends to pass our name along and recommend us for new home construction to contractors he knows all over the south.

Lynn does excellent historical looking new home designs and sells them online at She is an excellent resource too. She twitters often at If you'll sign up, she will keep you informed of many new products as they hit the market.

Look at the porch now!!!

I thought you'd like to see the progress that's been made in last few weeks on the porch. Remember I blogged earlier about the telajack posts and Cable-tite working together. The Telajack is holding the porch up, and the Cable-Tite is holding it down. They work together inside the columns.
The columns are finished now and look terrific. The Telajack and Cable-Tite are totally enclosed so you never see them again. But Fred Yates knows they are there when the storm's high winds come across the lake, and he's glad they are there. They are securely anchored.
I have a ton of photos showing the column construction. This is not only necessary to hold the roof up and down, but cost effective and easy. Try it on your next project!
