@Kyle is that your new house? Looks like a great drinking porch. I'm interested in the grass, though. 

It’s not, it’s my parents house, should be a great drinking spot when it’s finished as it gets sun on it until close to 9pm in the summer time. 
 

I’ll post pictures of the new house renovation once I get started on it. Having a really difficult time getting a permit for a dumpster which is frustrating

Forgot to post this on Monday night since I got drunk from celebrating, but I finally finished my PhD at Widener University and hope to never take a class ever again. As difficult and time consuming a

First day out, First time on a skin track, hell of a workout. Alta, from the base up to Catherine's two quick Laps off the back side then back to the base. Around 2600' of vert. Great day with quite a

My thirteen-year-old and I got out on the citadel yesterday.  This was a big deal for him and was his first true ski-mountaineering adventure.

Walkway is just about finished up, just need to continue building the outer retaining wall and then add the garden area between the wall and walkway, the rain this week is going to delay that a bit however.

are the pavers glued to the concrete?  Im glad you covered up that concrete.  You know how goofy @toast21602 is about grass?  I was having the same heart palpitations looking at that concrete being unfinished.

Yeah they’re glued to the concrete. I skimped on the finishing of the concrete for that reason, didn’t want to make it look nice and pretty just to have pavers cover it up just simply leveled it and smoothed it out enough to not effect the seat of the paver/glue

They look great. Nice work. We just dropped dough on a paver patio project we got in the works. Jelly because if I had any skills at all we could've saved some $$.

Oh I believe it. The block alone was $3100. Couple that with cement, labor, etc and it’s likely a $10k+ job. My dad is super old school and is one of those “why pay when we can do it ourselves” even though the professionals quality would trump this ten fold.

I can pretty much fix/build anything around my house but there are some things I hire people to do ..... Roofing and drywall finishing come to mind...I don't install carpets either.....

I have done the roof on three sheds i have/had. They are easy, no valleys or transitions, but i 100% agree, the roof on my house should be left to someone with way more talent than myself. I can finish drywall, but it takes me a long while.

I’m completely gutting my new house and I’m going to hang the drywall, but I’m paying someone to come in and finish it. I can not stand finishing drywall

Annual bloom of flowers in the cemetery I run by almost daily.

Those are some old memorial stones.  Most are white marble.  Marble is much softer than granite and weathers away a lot..although the purple flowers offset the decay well. 

 

Thanks Toast for reminding me of work.  Cemeteries are good places to walk/run...

I'm ramping up to install a new deck. Doing it in blue stone. I'm done with pressure treated or composite. Everything up here either rots or rusts within 10 years. Did some googling and found this cool system to install the stone. PVC heavy duty grates, roll a rubber mat over it and place the stone on top. Hardest part is leveling the joists so there's no stone wobble. Piers got delivered last week, lumber gets delivered next week. Ordered it early because I don't see lumber prices coming down in the near future. Most likely going even higher.

Nice BMW...Moe aren’t you glad you didn’t buy a restaurant. 

FAAAAAAAHK that. Spidey senses never lie. Timing in life is everything. Every restaurant and bar up here closed up permanently or temporarily, and the few that stayed open were sucking wind and still are. Everything is pretty much closed down now until May up here which is typical when Smuggs stops spinning the lifts. Got an interview at Spruce Peak Lodge for a bartending job on Thursday. If I like it and the cash is good I'll get a snowmobile for the winter and ride through the notch to work! Pretty stoked on that! Gonna try to work at both resorts for free skiing on both sides of the mountains!

Nice. There are worse first coasters than Trailblazer!

I think she'd really like the super dooper looper but too small for it...hopefully next year.   Back again today.  Sky rush was walk on this morning so I ditched the family and did that a few times
