Parking lot

Building a Parking Lot.

The Extreme Sandbox parking lot needs expanding, so we called in professional contractor Carson Schifsky from Schifsky Companies to help us out. Watch as we work on properly grading our parking lot in preparation to lay crushed concrete.

A special thanks to Carson Schifsky and Chuck Gartzke from Gartzke Construction for helping us out today! You can check out Carson's awesome YouTube channel for more projects here ▶ http://bit.ly/2Y5XXR3

Excavator Golf.

Us to Client: Okay. Line up that excavator bucket with the basketball sitting on top of the dirt pile. Do a 360° turn and hit that basketball as far as you can across the field. Make sure not to lower your boom mid turn so you don't hit the dirt pile.

Client: *Lowers excavator boom mid turn* 😆

No explanation needed.

"I saw this on Shark Tank and I said to my wife the next morning, 'I’ve got to do this.' We retired in February and we decided to take a 3-4 month trip. The only thing we said that we had to do was come to Extreme Sandbox. I had probably one of the best times of my life."

Car crushing at Extreme Sandbox. Quality therapy, minus the therapist.

Summer is officially here. Burning question: (pun intended)

Which number below is your perfect marshmallow?

Did you know...?

We call this our "Launching Dozer." After creating your own dirt mound, you drive our 20-ton bulldozer up and over that mound. We've only had ONE person need a new pair of pants. 😉

New ride idea?? 😎

This is Cooper, our mascot.
Cooper is sitting at the desk of our Marketing Ninja, Jen.
Jen was gone for the day, so the boss dressed Cooper up in her sweatshirt and took a picture.
Jen can't even be mad. Look at that face...😀
