            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Wayne County, Patrick W. Greenwood, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Greer, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (10 pages)

            Robert Jackson appeals a district court order foreclosing a mechanic’s lien in favor of Marvin Swan.  Jackson contends the trial court (1) should not have excluded certain exhibits, (2) acted inequitably in concluding Swan substantially performed the contract, and (3) should not have awarded trial attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm.
