Going to expand the deck on the back of the house, rework the stairs, make some planting beds and make it so I can park a car and boat underneath. Thinking that I might just go ahead and screen it in also. Jurys out on that.

Default well

My list is toooo big...

I'm in the process of getting ready to sell the House, and move to another State up North. The taxes and way of life do not fit here any longer.
Folks here are just plain nuts, that's all I can come up with for the lack of duty to others around them.
I know the grass always seems greener elsewhere, however It is time for a change ...hopefully going to surround myself with oldschool, respectfull, and helpfull critters like myself.

Time to end the drama's that envelope folks around here...they actually live by and watch the NEWS of today...

OHHHH, you mean projects like finishing the Caboose shed I'm building to put on a trailer and take with me. Or the new home I will build possibly in a year or two....I'll start a blog for that one.
( Insert dancing bacon here)

In addition to a re-tiling a terrace project, I plan to build some storage cabinets/shelves for the garage. We just moved in recently and the garage doesn't have anything in terms of storage. I'm also thinking about building a storage area/closet in the crawlspace, which is sloped and is about 10 feet tall in some parts. Finally, I will probably remove a concrete sidewalk next to the house that was improperly laid above the foundation and causing water to leak down under the house.

Thanks any way, but folks down at the yacht club would just think I was showing off if I showed up with something that nice.

I am preparing for two summer projects. One is our fireplace and the other one is bigger - working on our unfinished basement. I am researching/planning what do with our basement and wondering if I should plan it all out or just do it in steps. (We need another bathroom which led us to thinking we should just do the whole basement at the same time). Wasn't sure what category/thread I should ask for advice on that. Boy, my mind is spinning with that one.
