14.)Do you provide weekly reports, a schedule calendar and progress photos online for me to track?
Yes.  ParsCo superintendents keep daily reports and the log is available to Owners for review.  ParsCo produces a CPM schedule at the onset of each project to use as a tool to manage and schedule all construction activities. The CPM schedule is also used to establish milestones with the Owner as it relates to the selection process.  All ParsCo projects are documented with weekly photography and assigned their own website for the Owner's review and use.

  23. Body builders use powders to mix with other food that helps them bulk up.
    In my years of experience, when I bulked
    up and gained weight and fat, the biggest mistake I made was not tracking what I ate.
    Any product or lifestyle that can help to increase body mass in a healthier manner and without using
    any harsh chemical is a safe and natural way to gain body weight.
