2017 Pacific Coast Builders Conference

I got a chance to hang out at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC). The speakers were motivating; the classes were instructive, but maybe best of all, the whole vibe was upbeat, and that bodes well for at least the immediate future of our industry (knock on wood). I had a great time, but how do you not have fun in San Diego? Heck, the Padres even won the game we went to. Of course the exhibitors were showing off their latest and greatest. Here are just a few products that caught my attention:
