In the photo above David is explaining how the Unified temperature controlled trucks unload into this temporary holding area. The outside doors are then closed, shutting off uncontrollable elements such as the Texas heat. Then the interior doors on the right are opened and the crates are moved into the building.
Speaking of crates, here are three custom built Unified crates. Each is made from birch plywood, sealed with a clear coat. The lids have gaskets and are attached using bolt plates instead of wood screws. Really wonderful work.
Next month NTAAC will be having a casual get together with the North Texas chapter of the International Society of Appraisers.
