    A New Adventure Begins! - Nov 2021 Update

    It’s crazy in my area. All my buddy’s and my dad’s friends are presently in the trades. A lot of them are saying they r pretty much telling people we will bill you for material when it arrives and their time is hourly. They aren’t even giving estimates cause the days end up being so wonky they...

    Dog potty area ideas?

    I have been using construction rock for 13 years now for my dog. I put it off the porch when I finished building my house cause I had no yard. Didn’t want the dog in the mud. Best thing I ever did. My dog will not poop or pea on grass so I don’t have to worry about him on walks. He just goes in...

    Next Summer Upgrades!

    I have to put up our tv. I have been too lazy to just order one from one of our distributors when ordering other stuff. I have to repaint the bathroom. I’m fairly confident the wood won’t shift again. Especially with the heat and rain this summer. And if I’m really really really motivated strip...

    Pool Math........The App

    I totally never knew that about YouTube. That’s nuts. And I consider myself very tech savvy. You learn something everyday. I guess something like YouTube I always view as something you sign up for on YouTube itself on a computer. Kinda like when I signed up for pandora or Spotify.

    Rant: Liquid Bleach non-disclosure

    I end up at Leslie’s for thier 12.5 percent or wal mart for the 10.0 percent or ace for thier 10 percent. I never look online. I hop in the Jeep, drive to one place, and grab it. Never had an issue even this year like others were saying.

    We only reverse sear since a member here introduced me to it. It’s the only way to cook a steak or a pork chop I feel. I concur about the smoke with steaks. My wife and myself agree some cuts just should not be smoked. Not a bad thing. Lol just sometimes you don’t need it. I got to get some...

    Significant Builder Delays

    Our builder was awesome also but I knew him since I was a kid and my grandmother spent the last 8 urs of her life above his pool place in an apt he built so she could actually be close to my parents. He got all of his deadlines on time but that might have been due to the fact that each deadline...

    A beater is worth its weight in gold. My beater has no air anymore and the radio changes input when u got a bump. Lol. But he gets the job done. Gets everything I need to my house and gets my yaks in the water when I don’t take the boat out.
