Well what's attached to a leash that it made itself?

Love the thread. So much goddamn work, I'm not even close to man enough to tackle all of this poo poo. :smith:

You're getting a ton of experience in construction though at least which can't hurt for future (insane) projects.

We were using the old seats from a Roadmaster as bonfire seating but they kept digging into the ground and tipping over backward.

So I threw together a quick base for them. Need to mount a 6-pack holder in the middle ahead of the seats.


Are all your friends as tall as you? Most of us normal sized folk would be left with legs dangling like children. :)

Good that the bit failed instead of catching and breaking your arm/wrist. I'm in awe at how loving mangled that bit is on the chuck side more than anything.

drat, you're a good brother. Not that I have the skill to do it but I'd say "good loving luck, family."

I have a truck that I no longer need but it's not worth taking 3k for something that's a reliable backup vehicle. I bought it about 3 years ago to tow a racecar that I never bought, but it has come in handy for those 2-3 home depot trips. :v:

Great question. Probably anywhere from February or so through spring, yes.

Man, how long has this been in the making?

Is the plan to move out west on that property you bought and build another bomb proof house?

How often does the sunk cost fallacy enter your mind with each new surprise you find?

Every time you find something even more terrible than before and has me like :tviv: and if it were me, I would probably burn it all down.

Sorry, rereading that it sounded mean which wasn't what I intended. I guess it's easy to say in hindsight, same with the dumb bullshit I hate about my current house.

I don't know if it's ironic as hell, or just kastein.txt, that the nicest it's ever looked is when he's given up on it and is trying to GTFO.

This. It's crazy to see where you started and now that you're nearly across the finish line and like "welp, see you later." It looks great though man!

Mine is that way as well and the door can't be switched. Realized that once it was mostly off.:v:

Yeah the pictures make it look very paste like, that sounds miserable. Mixing your own is the way to go, but it does mean making a dusty horror show somewhere. You can get it to a sort of far too thick for a straw milkshake consistency. Use a corded drill and mixing bit. Spreads easy, flows well, and cleans off decently. Though I did tend to spend a lot of time dealing with haze, oops. That was likely operator error over applying.

I repaired a few loose tiles and did a bit of grout and the dusty mess rings true. Thankfully it was small enough areas that I just used a little yogurt cup to mix up my grout. Still, that sucked and I wasn't even laying tile.

The shrinkage is not looking great right now but oh well. It is what it is.

My wife eventually came around to accepting things as they were. Hopefully yours will too.
