Groundbreaking for new Palm Construction building
Lloyd Palm and Judi Moreo break ground July 14 on a new 8,000-square-foot building in Olds Station for Lloyd Palm Construction.

General contractor, heavy equipment operator and, yep, male model Lloyd Palm broke ground last week on an 8,000-square-foot building that’ll house a huge machine repair shop, private museum and, yep again, art studio and gallery.

He probably described it best. “We just wanted a place where we could fix machines and display a little art.”

Done in first-class fashion, the ground-breaking included Palm, girlfriend and author Judi Moreo, building erector Corey Davis of Western Ranch Buildings, a ceremonial golden shovel, a ceremonial golden Dodge Ram 2500 (Palm’s pickup) and a giant 125-ton excavator. The machine is most likely one of the biggest of its kind in the region, Palm said.

Construction of the steel building began last week and should be finished in about three months. It’s located on the site of Palm’s Ram Ridge Gravel Sales in Olds Station and is the first industrial building on the property. Four more adjacent lots could be developed in the near future.

You’re wondering, of course, if Palm really is a male model and why would he combine heavy equipment repair with art exhibitions under one roof.

Well, last year Palm was a top 10 finalist in AARP’s “Faces of 50+” nationwide modeling search. He was encouraged to participate by girlfriend Moreo, a national motivational speaker, author and artist. The new building will provide an upstairs art space where she can paint, show work and give lessons. Also upstairs: A production studio where Moreo can record podcasts for her online radio show — “Choices … with Judi Moreo” — on blogtalkradio.com.

After decades as a general contractor, these days Palm specializes in buying, repairing and reselling used heavy equipment.
