  • Needed to be approved by the complex manager

Project Description:

This system was built on a balcony of an apartment, presenting the added challenge of transporting materials through common areas of the apartment complex.  Because of the close proximity of the apartments, the system had to be low-noise and minimally intrusive to neighbors.  Hapa Farms also assisted the homeowners with the paperwork to receive the proper approvals required by the complex manager.
