    Maybe we can just put a wider drain in the shower and use that as the toilet. It's self cleaning!

    Cut the duct in the floor out of the way. Sawzall or snips should work. You don’t want a wall grill on the floor. They’re not made to be stepped on.

    Covered patio is basically done. Just needs the downspouts, fireplace, and step. We also may end up painting it to to match the house or staining it darker.

    House Hunters is such a great show. The format really puts on display the “hunter’s” sense of gratitude and contentness (or lack of). Some people are bitching about the size of the pool while others are gushing over a phone booth sized “walk-in” closet. Perspective is everything.

    Busting through some concrete on the skirt of my patio to pony fence in my side yard to contain most of my smoking & grilling equipment. Got to keep it out of reach of my 15 mo man child who I found standing on my kitchen island this week.

    Going to put post 8’ above ground on the 2 patio corners and hand a sun sail to the 6’ side yard fence to get it somewhat out of the weather.

    I've heard some pretty good things about the electric weekenders
    I've got a lot to weedeat. But I think if my gas echo ever takes a shit I will probably go for an electric one. Makita would probably be my choice since I am already invested in their cordless line.
