    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.

    My list is toooo big...:p

    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.:D

    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.

    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.:eek:

    That Idea got all shot to HELLO there!! Good to be back!!.

    To much stuff here to keep me going I guess, I started to look around and see I am needed for this community, and well respected. Guess I have to change the game plan. Oh and we got rid of the problem, the outlaw got divorced after 44 years and moved south...she will not be missed!!
    SOOOO, I'm gonna stick around here for a few more years, and see what life turns out like, still have a great man here to help out in his older retirement years. And the Kids learn from that....sometimes it's not about Us.:clap:

    Well my friend, sometimes life has a way of taking care of problems all by itself. Glad things are working out for the better. Hope all is well with you and the family.

    I've got a fair amount to keep myself busy for the summer.

    We need a path to the vehicles made,
    the deck needs rebuilt either this year or next year,
    the porch roof is in need of some urgent repairs,
    I've got some above ground planters to build (I'm going to try and grow corn in 'em),
    the bathroom floor needs repairs,
    and I may rebuild the shed, but the roof might be all that I get to this year.

    I'm not sure what I'll be able to budget out of that, but I already have the wood for the planters, so that will be finished once the snow finally melts away.

    I am headed to Montana to look at some properties and if I find something I like, I have one more house in me to build. It will include a front porch with a rocking chair...
