Sign letter sample

This is a sample of one of the more complex letters. It's just got a primer gold coat. Finished paint will be much smoother and metallic. The ink pen at left is just for scale and finally, the background here is just cloth bed sheet. Wood won't have any wrinkles :-)

Prince Properties Neighbors,


We would like to thank the following for participating in the sign improvement project that is now in progress:


Jeff and Debbie Kirkpatrick & Family – For their 30 years of unselfish labor and monies mowing, weeding,  planting, painting, etc. the entrance way.

Bill Crowson & Family - for their organizing of this project.

Evan Dawson & family – for time and resources designing the new sign and all the versions Evan did leading up to selection.

Jeff Johnson & Family – for time meeting and brainstorming ideas.

My wife, Tammy Overman for not complaining when I bite off more than I can chew.

All those who voted and gave us feedback to proceed with a design.

Anyone else I failed to mention ( Please remind me to include you! )


We would like to thank the following families for their financial donations to the build fund:


Bill and Brenda Crowson

Jeremey & Candace Jones and Family

Troy and Wendy Haywood and Family

Michael and Tina Bonner and Family

Jeffrey and Angela Johnson and Family

Morgan Rhees and Family

Gary & Tammy Overman


To date $335 has been donated. With excess materials I had in my possession we've only spent $30 for stains and paints.

We've still got to buy large lumber, hardware and landscaping, so please don't think your donations will go to waste.

Overall I think we are in pretty good shape.

We'll still need some strong backs and arms come time to install.


I've got the individual patterns printed to life size , cut, and I'm beginning to cut the raised wooden letters.

Photo's will be posted here as I proceed.

Tank - 1st trial completed tonight

I got in XPOD and did a short float trial. The auxiliary heater has a little trouble evenly heating the tank, but some swim mixing evened it out.

It went excitingly well. The tank feels huge inside and the float level is perfect. It's a weird feeling to float that high above the water even though I'm not a total newbie.

A few kinks to work out, but I'm very happy... And a tad relaxed.
