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 FREAKING HATE PLUMBING. Worked all day to try and get my heat turned on. Started off okay after a little found a leak,  fix that, oh a new leak, fix that, oh another leak. Couldn't get it turned on today due to this and getting annoyed with chasing small leaks. Good thing they were all in the basement and the leaks will be fixed tomorrow and hopefully I can get that heat turned on.

I used to be frustrated as well since I'd occasionally get pin hole leaks - then I found out about shark fittings. They're much more expensive then copper fittings but not having to deal with a propane torch and solder is well worth the extra cost. And best of all never had a leak.

I feel your pain. Swapped out the kitchen faucet at the MIL's house and once it was all done and ready to test for leaks, I noticed it was leaking from where the p-trap joins the pipe that goes up to the sink strainer. Went to tighten the nut and noticed that the pipe had actually broken clean off, and the threads were still in the other pipe. Thought, "ok no big deal" and I'll just replace it. Go to loosen it, and the whole damn thing comes out of the strainer. Same thing, the threads were in the other pipe. So I spent the entire late afternoon/evening re-doing the entire plumbing under her sink.

This is what I do for any temp repairs now. Will eventually swap everything to PEX if we add on but when I added water outside did all Shark fittings just so much quicker. Have not used on hot water yet though.

We fixed it today and I had run a ton of PEX for all my heating but you have to connect with copper to the furnace. I have heat again yay.

Stripped back the deck in the pool area and applied new oil. Wish I knew about the stuff I put on earlier. Removing the previous ugly yellow pigment was far from fun. Multiple goes with the pressure washer, oil stripper and a day of crawling around scrubbing by hand followed by more pressure washing just about did me in.
Fortunately it looks like it’s come up well.

Thank you ....That’s why I did it myself but went cheap, they put in those counter tops before we bought it so decided to save money by not replacing them and the cabinets are from the 90s but were custom made looked really nice once I sanded them .. so I add the top part and trim and paint to make them look somewhat in this decade .. my parents redid there kitchen last year and I think it was $25-$30k ... kitchens are really expensive .. hope you get a good price

Did you just reface the cabinets? We're thinking of that as an option - but will need to redo the countertops. Our current kitchen is blue Formica - countertops and cabinet faces. What were the previous owners thinking???

I didn't do any veneers or anything they are the original cabinets .. I took the cabinet doors off did a deep clean to them and the frames and sanded them then bought self leveling paint from Benjamin Moore primer and the gray, used a sprayer to paint the doors for a smoother look.

. We're going to have to redo kitchen in our recently purchased Florida home. I'm looking at lots of options for redoing it. 

Choose the company you use to do any work in FL carefully. There are many good reputable ones but just as many preying on Seniors and “Seasonal Residents “.
I’m sure you’ll do your homework.
