A natural swimming pool or natural swimming pond is a system consisting of a constructed body of water, where the water is contained by an isolating membrane or membranes, in which no chemicals or devices that disinfect or sterilize water are used, and all clarifying and purifying of the water is achieved through biological filters and plants rooted hydroponically in the system. A CMS natural pool is a cost effect means to add convenience, beauty & value to your property. Natural pool designs are environmentally friendly and are much more energy efficient than conventional pools. Integrating surrounding flora & fauna into the design; -- Natural pools create an aquascape that is green, visually appealing & environmentally conscious. When managed properly, natural swimming pools have crystal-clear water and require no chemicals to maintain because they are self-cleaning mini-ecosystems. The water is clean enough that you don't necessarily have to take a shower after you stop using the pool. Natural pools also have lower maintenance costs than conventional pools, and their installation costs are on par with standard designs.
METAL DETECTING / LOST ITEM RECOVERY
Where can we detect? If you lost your item somewhere on your own land or public place such as a e.g. boat-dock lake-front, back yard, parkland, etc. - then no extra permissions are needed. If you think you may have lost something in a national park or other private property then you will need to obtain written permission before we can search. Will I be able to find the lost item? If you have a good idea, within reason, where the item was lost then the chances are it will be found relatively easily. Remember that items can move underground in damp soil and can be pushed further beneath the surface in frequented areas - so if you have an approximate area I can detect in - then this will further increase the chances of recovery. Time is of the essence because your item may become buried, found or washed away. What can be found? Generally all metallic/ferrous items can be found and some of the most common items lost are: Jewelry, rings, watches, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, coins, cameras, phones, and such.

MASONRY & STUCCO WORK
Is Aged or Damaged Siding Hurting Your Home's Equity in More than One way? Damaged siding can lead to even more serious problems then simply cosmetic - as things from the outside like rain & debris get inside the walls! There have been cases where mold growth actually forced people to leave their own homes! And, damaged siding really does a hatchet-job on a home's equity - the very thing that many people will use to assist their retirement! Damage is the doorway to infestations: Roaches; -& an ever increasing myriad of pests - from ants to silverfish, -scorpions, spiders & even snakes, bats & birds! There are many cases of bees entering homes through damaged siding & causing lots of problems. Because many insects can actually eat rotting wood as well as the funguses that live on it; --such damage makes the property an inviting haven for pests. CMS will fix these issues with a complete stone veneer upgrade that will address the deterioration, repair the breaches, protect against future moisture splatter-damage & add equity to the property (& look wonderful). It is built by either replacing or preparing the existing surface (depending on the current level of damage & other construction factors). Once the surface has been properly prepared, veneer stones are installed. The result has the look & feel of an authentic stone supporting structure! However, what has actually been done is a durable surface made out of natural or manufactured stone has taken over the function of the previously damaged material! It looks better and it is structurally stronger! So, whether you're needing a relatively small home facelift; -Or whether you need more (such as illustrated by the images here): Let Charles Moody Services help you with high-end, low maintenance improvements & makeovers! You'll discover that the price is better than you suspected & the gain in equity offsets the investment substantially. The improvement also benefits the "curb-appeal" of the property & makes the neighborhood a nicer looking place. Once Charles Moody Services shows how many affordable options you have & the advantages of knowing what changes provide the best highlights for your home's style; --You'll wonder how you ever got along without us!
BUNKERS & SUB-GARAGE STORM SHELTERS
A short-term storm shelter or storm cellar is a type of underground bunker designed to protect the occupants from violent severe weather, particularly tornadoes. They are most frequently seen in the Midwest and Southeast United States where tornadoes are generally frequent and the low water table permits underground structures. Fully enclosed underground storm shelters offer superior protection to that of a traditional basement or cellar because they provide separate overhead cover without the risk of occupants being injured by collapsing rubble from above. For this reason they also provide the only reliable form of shelter against "violent" tornadoes which tend to rip the house from its foundation, exposing the occupants directly to the extreme violence of the storm. CMS designs storm structures based on your needs & particular circumstances. We have many options to choose from and many of our shelters can be built to serve a variety of purposes such as home security, personal protection & even perishable storage. We offer several sizes of storm shelters to meet your family’s needs - from sizes that accommodate 6 people all the way up to 14. Additional features are available as well.
LUXURY CUSTOM HOMES & BARNS BY CMS.
As any child knows, -when the Big Bad Wolf blows; - Have you considered - how that olde story goes? (So, what are you going to build your house out of? Let CMS offer a suggestion!) CMS provides building services & construction using vastly superior building techniques beneath aesthetically stunning surfacing materials. CMS takes a unique "core-out" approach to the earthen building process that can utilize materials from the very land the house is built on. This approach allows us to integrate additional structures into the design - created by selective excavation of the site. The benefit to the qualifying customer is often the addition of a basic, core, in-ground hollow created by the process that can be modified to suit a particular function - such as a storm cellar. And when you can use the material from the very land the house is built on - as well as the voids created by planned excavation -- it's like your land purchase begins to doubly pay you back! CMS sources Earth Blocks if your special project requires them.
