    Upcoming Outdoor Kitchen Build- Comments or Suggestions?

    I wish I would have know about the retractable screens when we were building our outdoor entertaining space. Then the tracks they ride in could have been incorporated into the design. No matter what your builder thinks they know about those have the screen company come out and work I. Parallel...

    My happy place :)

    Love the shade the trees provide and the spot for a few hammocks :). They are hanging low and I do need to get them trimmed higher and cleaned up on the inside of the canopy. Leaves fall from it and a few get into the pool. Oak pollen gets in the pool (everywhere if you live in central Texas...

    Not ready for prime time...

    Nice back yard! Might sound crazy but I like your fence. Ours is c r a plol and even with the landscaping is the first thing you see. The look of those wide boards and top cap is what I want. How often do you have to stain it....that might be a deal breaker.

    SWG Wear & Tear? Cell question...

    Whoa! That's a lot of scale alright.....I would say to break it down, soak it in a diltued muratic acid, wash it off, and put it back together. Would also check to see if the flow and nacl sensors are caked up as well.

    Need to vent...

    No ladders. Two lights. Haven't taken them out, and not really too sure about doing that because of electricity issues. I guess if I turn off the breaker to that it would be ok. So does water go behind those? Never even thought about that.
