When the gf and I moved in together, we had so much of the same household stuff, our crawl space is mostly full of that. Thankfully I have 4 cousins within 5 years of me and I'm sure one will be moving out soon, so I'll be able to give all that stuff to them

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

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   

The biggest thing I haven't been able to fix so far is the lack of a simulator.

Every time we moved the local goodwill store was verrrrry happy. Last time we move about ten years ago I promised we'd never accumulate that much 'stuff'. But unfortunately continue. My solution now (including stop buying) is to do a run to goodwill annually. If we haven't used something in the past 2-3 years it goes there.

We are at Goodwill maybe 1-2 times a month. The GW here has an incredible turnover of goods mostly because of the demographics of the area, old and older. We donate stuff often. If we haven't touched something in a year GW it goes. We occasionally find some great more stuff to buy. Heh it's what seniors do in the days they're not golfing or doctors.

That's funny - comment about seniors. I'm going to have to go to the front of the store I've only been to the drop off area. Maybe I'll find some golfing items there - although being a lefty chances aren't good.

This F@#! shower door keeps getting worse. It really just needs a new closing mechanism. I wonder if I could find a handle that you drill screws through the glass without cracking the glass.

Or bolts from the other side. Adding a washer would help

We went from a small house about 1300SF to an apartment of about 700sf. We brought nothing with us when we moved, we lived there for a year, then moved into a 3000sf home, and after 7 years it's full, no idea how, it just is. We need to downsize again.

I'm a little crazy about clutter. I love throwing things away. My wife and I are having a battle right meow: she keeps trying to fill the house up and I'm trying to keep it empty.

 

Luckily, there's not a whole lot of places to put stuff so I can talk her out of some furniture purchases on that alone

I don't think your alone in that battle. It's every couple has a “keeper” and a “tosser”.

Here's another project that I'm glad to be done with. I've been getting regular reminders to handle the backsplash since we moved into the house.

 

This project helped me earn the pass out of the house to go play last Sunday with CG2 and ddryan.

 

____________________________________________

 

Here's the "before." I didn't personally mind the backsplash but SWMBO hated it so it's gotta go. I'm so glad I used the cardboard to catch all my debris.

p3tz8rL.jpg

 

 

Using a 7-in-one tool, I chipped off the existing splash. At first, I was happy that it was only mounting tape holding it on (instead of glue) but later changed my opinion.

7KdnhOH.jpg

 

 

Here it is all off. Still plenty of tape to get off. Glass sprayed everywhere as the pieces broke off. Stupid me started in socks and stepped on a 1" piece. That wasted about 30 minutes while I tended to the wound.

ISpmxdY.jpg

 

 

Half a day of sanding and chipping and applying adhesive remover and on and on and on I've finally got a reasonably clean wall to work with.

2 runs at spackling and sanding. Now I've got my entire kitchen covered in dust.

Paint. This was by far the easiest step. It looks awfully naked in there. Not pictured, I moved the light forward (towards me) to accommodate the shelves.

Aaaaaaaand finished product.

Just call me Bob Vila from now on. I'm actually quite happy with how it came out. It was my wife's vision so blame her for the decorating 🤪 This took me 2 1/2 days of solid work and I hated almost every second of it. Glad to be done!

Nice work! I don't envy your work on drywall, that's the worst thing to work on. I hate the dust it creates plus the tediousness of working on it til it's right.

Nice work Stud!

 

I've got another one. Electrical work...what do the sparkies over here smoke before wiring a house? Grab a bunch of wires and throw them in a breaker with no rhyme or reason as to where they're going. I've got breakers that do stuff for upstairs and downstairs...who does that?

 

I'm replacing all the switches with the paddle type and only buzzed myself 3 times...110v just tingles. I've been hit with 240v (that's household size back home) a couple of times and it's a big difference.

That's still no fun. I had a friend who lost feeling in her arm when she accidentally touched 10,000 volts. I'm just glad she didn't get worse at the time.

Our driveway is cracking up .   It will need replacing one of these days however it's on the bottom of the list..  

 

 

For you folks who are having rabbit problems, I can rent my dog (Roxie) out and she will resolve your problem in no time.  Problem being she might burp one up on your living room floor.  This really happened when we lived in the country  :D
