Almost finished building myself a new smoker, will get it done tomorrow before seasoning it and hopefully getting some ribs cooked. Sunday morning   Monday afternoon   

We did a ton this year but this has to be my favorite. My parents helped us build this in our family room.  

We’ve been doing so much work outside. Of course it is sooo hot here we can do it early morning, or late a night. Still have some small things to do, but for the most part it’s ready to go. As I flipp

I can't imagine having to move 20 without some machinery.

Speaking about tilling, what a pain it was to remove my old lawn. Thought I tilled enough to remove the lawn, but even after cleaning up and raking, there was still another layer of deep roots still in the ground. For such a crappy lawn that I had previously, the roots were really deep.

We’re you trying to lay it back down after? Or just till to start fresh?

Fresh start. I guess I could have used a sod cutter to make my life easier, but I think there would still have been roots underneath because the sod cutter only cuts a few inches down.

That's looking good! You did a wonderful job getting it level and once that sod sets in, it's going to be nice.

Thanks. Still has some slant to it to ensure proper drainage, but will be much better than before.

I am such a gardening newb. Wasn't aware that you shouldn't use topsoil for plants in containers. Had to remove all of the plants and replant with potting soil.

Yeah.  Vinyl planks.  I’m cheap, so it took me a while to find something.  Got this from BestLaminate after reading copious amounts of reviews.  Ended up being $1.89 a square foot, with the pad attached with the Labor Day sale. My wife showed me some stuff she liked... but I could have bought a Ferrari or two... 

 

As for the driver... I am going to leave it to the fitter.  My only requirement is that it is not a Callaway.  Even if it is 75 ok maybe 7 yards longer than the next thing. 😂

Found this mess when I finished the demo up this week. Yea that's the bottom of the rubber roof and that's old shingles. Someone had an old chimney in this section and never put anything under it to make sure there was wood to support the roof. There's a ton of old water damage that doesn't look like it has happened for a while. I will have to get the rubber roof taken care of in a year or two and I will try to remove any bad wood from below and frame then put plywood on top of it to support the rubber roof. I HATE people who don't know how to do things the right way.

Best of luck! I think it's a fair trade and worth a driver and another club. That flooring looks great, btw.
