    Building is 32x48x14 = $24K
    Site prep/Backfill = $8K
    Cement slab = $7K
    Total will be just shy of $40K

    That is hiring out for everything and my site needed 4 days of bulldozer work at more than $1K/day. If you find an area that needs minimal site prep you can build this for around $32K

    Installed another camera. Question, I want to fill this hole. Anything recommended? Something Easy to use. Would caulking work or should it be something with more of a rubbery texture?

    Paintable caulk...or use a small scrap trim piece to make it look "factory sealed."

    Planning to do the same soon. Paintable caulk sounds like a good choice

    I've had a lot going on around my place, kitchen, bathrooms and shop. Here is a picture of some cabinets I just put in. They're the 10 piece New Age Cabinets from Costco. Not completely finished. I have to attach the work top, bolt the uppers together, and put in the lights. PXL_20201013_005904487.jpg

    Did some thinking and heard some advice from a friend who had bamboo and decided to re-pot it. So I went to the Home Despot and picked up a larger plastic pot than the one it came in with no holes in it and repotted it. Also decided that's how I'm going to do that whole area.

    Good call.
    Planting bamboo in the ground is a forever decision. It spreads insanely fast and you'll never be able to get rid of it if you feel like a change.
    My grandparents had an entire wall of bamboo on one side of their house. I had a lot of found memories as a kid climbing through it feeling like a jungle.
    Nothing wrong with it, but just want to make sure you know what your getting into. A 2' deep root barrier would do the trick if you want to plant it. It would definitely give you privacy

    Got the flooring ripped out. Subflooring is good, just a couple damp spots where water leaked through, but nothing bad. If I can find the same flooring, I'll grab it. If not, I'll replace with vinyl. We'll find out prob tomorrow

    Yeah I ordered mine a few weeks ago before they went on sale because Costco offers price adjustments for 30 days. They showed up in a couple weeks beating the 3-4 week lead time. Stickers show they were manufactured in June. Got the workbench and lights installed under the cabinets.

    I added one of the myQ garage door app devices from the prime day thread to open and close my garage doors from anywhere. Setup was easy and I didnt even get to finish a beer. The 2nd one shipped separate and will set that one up tomorrow when it comes in.

    This could be counted as cleaning up the yard, right? I picked up 14 lbs of pecans from our front yard today. I think it's probably a third of what is still on the tree. Amazing pecans - have an almost buttery flavor.

    When I was growing up, my parents had 4 pecan trees. It was awesome, now I'm buying pecans to get my fix :( enjoy!
