  1. Had a great fourth and created my own fireworks. I lighted the grill and went inside. After getting comfortable the grill blew. What a shock and LOUD. So I get the tear out done. Think the grill could be fixed but it is over 15 years old and the wife would never be comfortable. The grill was bricked into the fireplace so had to take it apart to get it out. This is a well before ....so ok could not find the summer pics. Now that is the hole after removal. And this is what the grill looks like now. Now I need some help. Trying to keep the walls surrounding the old grill . Oh SWMBO wants a smoker grill now and it won't be built in. Want to cover the rough bricks inside and am looking for ideas or how to. Thought maybe stucco but dosen't that need a flat surface. Or what about hardy board? Ok I am out of ideas.
  2. Roh-Kray, Raggy....this is the existing front porch. . one too high step, even with the added lumber....no handrails...Boss HATES this porch, needs help to use the steps....so.. tape measure, pen and a sheet of paper...trying to measure things while fighting a stiff breeze...Came back inside, and drew up a PLAN That I could take down to Lowes this morning, and do a materials list, and refine the plan a bit... .Decking will go across the concrete slab, a rim joist will be tapconned to the edges of the slab...the rest will go onto 4 x 4 posts as needed...I even get to cut my own stair stringers...that aught to be fun to watch I will cover the sidewalk and that POS step... With the NEW stairs covering this cracked section. Front corner of the house has a bump out window, so where the bump-out starts... Is where the front of the new deck/porch ends...railings go right to that corner 2 x 6 top rail. No digging for the posts, as they will sit on concrete pavers, 1' x 1' squares. Railing all around the non-house sides, with hand rails for the steps. Lumber and hardware arrive the Monday after Easter...went can you people show up to help out? Even with the Mil. Discount...tain't cheap.... project is less that the 10 x 10 minimum that means I do NOT need to get a permit for this job. Should I be blogging this project, or just surprise everyone when I get it done?

  6. Hi All, My Family & I bought a house last year after months of hard work and saving our dream was finally come true. Our home 2 story building with 3 bedrooms. There is a covered back porch with a concrete floor and a fully finished roof. I want to screen it in and add an exterior screen door to it. Are there kits you can purchase that will make it easier? I would like to use aluminium framing and attach the screen to that. Maybe add a 2x6 to bolt it to the concrete floor, and frame out the door opening. I would rather not use wood, as I have seen in the past. I am fairly handy with tools. Did anyone take this on before? I have contacted a local porch enclosure company have you people heard about it
  7. My mind has been wondering again. I saw Walmart had those solar charged sidewalk lights for $1.00. I thought "why not make some patio lights. I used Cedar fence material and have made several variations. Some I just took the stake out and glued a string on to hang from above. Others I made small housing for and some have legs.
  8. Here's the decking so far. Someone asked me if I knew what I was doing. I guess he was hoping for advice. I told him "I've never done it before and I've had no instruction." Isn't that the same for life in general? It sure was for raising kids. Anyway here's a pic of the progress the railing posts are terribly fiddly work can take a whole day to get around one because the boards don't go down flat like face screwed decking they gotta go in sideways because Mister smarty pants wanted hidden fasteners.
  9. That mountain of lumber I was wondering about getting from my driveway to the flat roof of my shop. Well AND THIS LADIES AND GERMS IS THE "BRIDGING INSTALLATION PRO" Yes it's a poly bucket with a couple hunks of lumber fastened to it but It saved my back the agony of being bent over the whole time I was installing that bridging.
