    Thanks guys, that's half the deck, the other half will have a dining table on it.

    Looks go so far, cladding the kitchen in stone? How come you didn't opt for cement board over pressure treated plywood?
    I was originally going to clad it in stone but the cost for the stone ended up being way more than I though it would so i'll do it in the same siding as the house. There's cement board behind the pressure treated. I added the pressure treated so that the nails for the siding have something to bite in to.

    Do you do enough outdoors to justify a kitchen like that? Is your actual kitchen right inside? Seems like wasted space to me. I imagine it would look pretty slick when completed though!
    It probably looks fancier than it is. Really all the cabinet functions as is a glorified BBQ stand. I have 2 going in, a gas grill and a Kamado style. The work surface and storage will be nice to have though.

    Almost done my deck. 2 tier composite. Still have a little trim work to do and a railing being the BBQ and for the stairs. Wish I could add a built in BBQ but couldn't justify the extra cost.

    What did you use for posts for that privacy wall?

    They have aluminum posts at Lowe's to build them. Basically just mount the posts and the wood slides into rails with spacers. Company name is Hoft.

    Finally got the yard taken care of after 3 years of dirt pit and weeds. Started by building a deck. Never done it before. So of course I decide to make it more complicated than a basic design. Still needs steps and some garden boxes to prevent the toddler from falling off. Pretty happy with how it turned out.



    Lots of additional blocking to support the picture frame and centre strip. Joists 12" on centre to support 45 degree chevron pattern.

    Are those the hand-driven screw piles?

    I added blocking under the deck and used 4" lag bolts. So far hasn't budged or moved at all. I also put a bit of a gap between the house and the privacy wall so some wind could get by.

    Bought Fiskars weed pulling tool, best $34.95 spent ever. Pulled all weeds from my lot within 2 hours. No back pain.

    Then did the lawn, bagged it for the first time this year.



    The beast. Thanks to @jdmakkord for the recommendation (Husqvarna w/Honda power).


    Probably need to buy a blower. Mulching leaves alot of mess that takes me too long to broom up.

    Fixed my dishwasher again. This time it was leaking through those two holes in the top of the float. I replaced the float about 4 months ago and then it would leak a little bit of water every time something was placed directly over the top of the float. So I JB welded the top of the float, no more issues. The other patch in the back is where a knife pierced the back wall of the tub.

    Replaced my leaky toilet fill valve (20 years old) with a new Fluidmaster fill valve. So easy and fast!

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Got home from thanksgiving dinner with a bit.of a buzz on and figured the time was right to rip out a wall separating the livingroom and kitchen... Big mess but loving the light!
