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

Enjoying a new tool putting it to good use:

Not pictured, cleaned the retaining wall, playhouse, sidewalk, and siding by our entryway. This little electronic pressure washer has been quite nice and I don't have to bug FIL to borrow his.

Thanks for bumping this Stud... I’ll be having all sorts of fun... or lack there of doing home improvement this summer/fall.

You busy every weekend for the next year?

Great work! I love the bridge over the dry riverbed.

Thanks Tony...I know the thread was focused more on what’s my Achilles around the house but a little bit of positive isn’t a bad thing.

That being said...if anyone has an extra $5700 lying around for tree and stump removal I’ll take it.

It’s not that I don’t, I just cringe at the thought of spending that much to take down trees.

Whoop! Big weekend around the Garcia household. Got some small, important, exciting, and huge projects going on with many wrapping up. 

++++++++++++++++++++

Small...

Hung some tall blackout curtains for my youngest so she can take her naps in peace. Of course the oldest liked the look of bigger curtains (hers are already blackout) so I bet I'll end up doing the same for her too. 

++++++++++++++++++++

Important...

That damn shower door. You know, the one I started this thread complaining about. We're working on our 4th year in the house and I FINALLY tackled that SOB. Yyeeeeaaaahhhaaaaw.

The biggest issue came down to the alignment of the door. Had to use a rubber mallet to bang the corner in further for a straight hang then install some spacers to raise it up for clearance. Replaced the water seal and caulk (first time caulking and hated it) for good measure and the door is behaving for the first time since we moved in. 

++++++++++++++++++++

Exciting...

The Mrs and I just celebrated 5 years back in May. The traditional present for 5 years is wood so I got her a stack of wood and plans to build an Adirondak love seat. ❤️❤️❤️. I had to work on this thing one step at a time to fit it in around our busy schedule but finally finished it up today. AND IT SITS FLAT ON THE GROUND!! Very pleased with how it came out as this was the most difficult build I've done yet. Still need to paint it but here's the final result:

CA96E4A2-1190-409A-897C-C39EF1E61CF2.jpeg

++++++++++++++++++++

Huge....

My wife just started watching that tidying up show on Netflix with Marie Kondo. Needless to say, we're going through a full-on wardrobe cleanse. More to go on that but we're charging ahead for trash bags of clothes to donate. 

++++++++++++++++++++

 

 I'm sure a golfing community like this understands that one of the best parts of projects like this is new tools. I'm finally getting to the point where I feel like I've got a reasonably strong collection and can take on more projects. Can't wait to see what's next.

Sounds like a busy weekend. Btw masking tape is your friend when caulking - only way to get straight lines and even distribution.

Oh and love the chair - nice work

Lot watching all these projects. I can’t wait to stop moving constantly and own my own house. I have been going projects for the wife and her friends to keep me busy lol. Made a cool stocking hanger for Christmas. Made a few shelves and I am about to start making 2 end tables.

I like the chair- sits flat on the ground? I assume it's built for two to sit together? Nice work
