    There is also a similar visual change when you go from just framing and getting the Sheetrock installed. The consensus is after the Sheetrock is done the interior looks bigger. My wife and the realtor gal we’re going on (discussing it) about it the other day. Some aspects of this house we have only seen the design on paper and not a finished real detail.

    Thanks man, its come a long way from where it was when we bought the house! only have one little quarter round planter I need to plant and should be wrapped up.

    Edit - Meant to add, looks very clean compared to the paint on the house which has now been moved up on the timeline because it looks even worse now!

    It will be a pair sliding glass doors, they open at the center. 4 large panes: the 2 sliders in the middle and 2 fixed on the sides.

    Just finished hanging my garage cabinet set. Really pleased with the quality and appearance, especially for the price. The company is called New Age Products.

    Was really looking forward to my next honey-do project. Got the material in for a large patio and garden wall setup when all the sudden I realized that I have a hernia. Now, 12 pallets sitting idle.

    I had to install a hot wire fence around the site because this Longhorn Bull almost took out my truck a few weeks ago. He had his horns within a few inches of the front of my truck!

    Those Longhorns are like extremely large dogs with horns. I've heard them referred to as "Texas Yard Art." I'd like to get me a mini one for our yard...

    They definitely have a good amount of “Texas Yard Art” on this property. :D71832B2E-49E0-45EB-A354-2F1F67EEFEA2.jpg

    Some yard art for a librarian friend of mine.

    I just made the framework and mounted it.

    She had the existing plasma cut steel/ etched glass art work.

    Love it....that's the way to go. I used to sacrifice my knees doing helping with others houses when younger. Now, after decades of skiing and knowing my knees most likely have a finite amount of whatever left, they are saved for playing.

    Installed a mini-split to add supplemental cooling & heating in my kitchen/dining/living room! I’m amazed at how quiet both the indoor and outdoor units are.

    Nothing fancy but a lot of leveling and releveling.

    Brick edgers down the gravel driveway/walkway. Relayed and leveled all the pavers a few weeks ago.

    Garden area gets finished and cleaned up tomorrow. Once the spruce trees come down, it'll be topsoil, plant clover and wait.

    Too many
    Anyone have suggestions on dealing with driveway cracks? I see the previous owner put something in there which is no longer helping. My understanding is that it's best to try and keep water out so the erosion under the concrete doesn't get worse.

    Thank God for family. Being down with a hernia and 12 pallets of blocks and pavers sitting idle, my brother-in-law stepped in to help. Very experienced, plus he has a Kubota, it’s coming along nicely.

    Out of curiosity, what brand is that? We've got a Samsung that we love in our master suite...but it's the 'wall wart' kind. It'd be nice (and I'm sure there's no way to do this) if there was a way to replace that with the capsule kind that you installed in your ceiling.
