Texas Timber Wolf
expanded in 2012!

The construction of our
1600 Square Foot Workshop
was an exciting project that has since
helped us serve you
better, faster and more efficiently.

Read all about our expansion from a two-car garage to our magnificent new production facility on this page and share our excitement.


Pre-ConstructionConstruction
2012, March 3 Finally: Physical construction has begun.  We broke ground on our new production facility in Wylie, today. The construction entrance is installed and the contractor dug the rough foundation outline for the building.

2012, March 9 Waiting on the lab for test results on the fill material while the contractor installs silt fence and barriers at the storm drains. We got some rain but not aything that would cause delays.
Building Engineering and Utility contractors are on trac, so far. Hopefully the weather holds up and we can continue on Monday. Texas Timber Wolf workshop construction - Waiting for Lab.
2012, March 19 Just before the rains came ... again. After pumping 14" of water out of the hole for the foundation and being shut down due to wet conditions in the pit and additional lab related delays we finally got the fill layer installed and can move on to the forms and foundation beams. Texas Timber Wolf workshop construction - Compacting Fill Dirt.
2012, March 23 Unexpected progress today. The forms were started and part of the foundation dug. That puts us alomost back on track.
2012, March 27 Things are progressing well.
The forms are completed and the foundation trenches dug. Today, the plumber installed the pipes under the slab. We still have to hustle to get the pad poured and allow enough time to cure before the building is delivered on 4/10. Texas Timber Wolf workshop construction - Foundation Ditches. Texas Timber Wolf workshop construction - Rough Plumbing.
2012, April 2 Almost there:
Vapor barrier is installed, rebar cages are in the trenches and all the steel is installed, tied and inspected. W're ready to pour concrete. Let's hope the weather cooperates! Texas Timber Wolf workshop construction - steel in ground.
2012, April 4 Disaster!
The same storms that spawned 12+ Tornadoes in the area that destroyed several hundred homes in Arlington, Lancaster and Fourney hit us with torrential rainfalls. The result: The foundation trenches are filled to the brim, washed out and silted. No way we could pour concrete now. All the steel and tarps have to be removed and the trenches cleaned up before we can reinstall everything, have it reinspected and make another attempt to pour concrete. That means a week of delays.
2012, April 10 Let's try again.
The contractors did a tremendous job repairing and cleaning up the trenches and getting everything back in place. We passed the inspection this morning and are ready to pour concrete. Now we're waiting for the trucks... Texas Timber Wolf workshop construction - Waiting for Concrete.
What a difference 3 1/2 hours can make.
Hurray! We have a slab and are out of the ground. Now the weather becomes a secondary factor. Texas Timber Wolf workshop construction - Slab Done.

2012, April 23 What a difference a day makes!
