    This weekend in Tallahassee.  Great chance to get out and meet the Builders, meet the Sales Agents for those builders, and just get up-to-date on the Construction Industry.

      It's also a great opportunity to take exterior and interior photos to save on your hard drive.  You will have them when you need a generic photo for a blog or social media post.
