I have 6" X 5/16" structural screws with a T-40 head which that Dewalt nut driver loves to hammer away at. I recessed the holes 1" or so so that nothing shows

That's exactly what it is Tex, as you know so very well.

Way I see it, no matter what I plan for I will have to support more than what I have imagined.

Kids/their husbands, their babies. Being that they are young and not yet established, where do you think they are coming?

So lots of water, lots of power, lots of food/ability to create.

So as I bring this little project to a close, I am already sketching out a shed to support the shed and my continued expansion. Thinking about a 12 X 16 to house one of the tractors, get all the paint and lubricants out of the main shed, which now serves as an overflow sleeping area for guests.

The outhouse is going down there PDQ, really, as soon as I get enough strong men to help me lift that thing onto the trailer for transport. That will support those basic needs for a host of peeps for quite awhile so I feel good about having that. The deck really just repaired and expanded on the camper which supports the building effort. But aside from that getting the water/power room built is job 1 as that should answer my need for emergency water to about 50%. Tying in the well, finishes that along with the two filled 6000 gallon storage tanks.

Following that, I think I'll throw up a single enclosed raised bed like you have, then the fun begins.

I want to cut into the side of the hill in a circular fashion. In that newly created pad, raise a frequency 3, 24 foot geodesic dome which will be a green house. It will also have a fish tank inside where the droppings are extracted and used as fertilizer. A wall of peas will feed the koi/carp and I'd hope to find some level of synergy. (Man I'm gettin all hippie here)

Of course outside I'll have a 60mm cannon that one of my buddies builds on the sly for my amusement!

Oh and hit another milestone today

I paid off my tractor!

I know, making payments...not good

But sometimes I get to buy the equipment I like and finance it at 0% interest, even after negotiating it to the price I am comfortable with. It may be hard to believe, but that tractor is so fitted out with extras, it went out the door priced in the mid $40's! Yea, that was an expensive one!

When I can buy like that, I tend to keep my money stashed everywhere in a host of bank accounts, shoes, under rocks, in safes and probably some lost in places I forgot (Am I a distant cousin to Norm??) It makes sense to me to just use John Deere's money and not mine, although I do not like owing anyone money.

I own everything down there free of debt. I own the land, the buildings, the excavator, Sarge, the tractor, the tools, the weeds, the opossum, the stickers, the poison ivy, cedars, all of it! Well, actually I owe on the little tractor...was 0% as well!

Almost free at last, almost free at last, My God in heaven, almost free at last!

I hate debt too Don, but using someone else's money is a smart thing and keeps credit rating topped off.  Funny how credit works.  If you never use it , it atrophies..

Yea, I don't like what i now know about credit

I got to looking at my credit rating. I remember seeing a 750 some time back, but today the number is no where near that. When I review the reasons, the report states, amongst other things, that I do not have enough revolving credit (I have none at all.) Apparently they want to see me have six forms of revolving credit to improve this category.

Now that seems counterintuitive to me, but it's a bankers game you see. They want people constantly feeding their kitty. They do not want financially independent people who simply use their own money.
I could have borrowed 25K to buy the excavator, but instead, I just used my own cash. Could have borrowed against something to buy Sarge or the saw mill or a host of things, but I just wrote checks.

Money is (In modern society), power along with information. When the money remains in the pockets of the people, that degree of freedom and power remains intact with the individual.

Yeah, the way I keep my credit rating up is use 2 credit cards to buy everything and pay them off each month and never pay interest.

One of the cards puts 2% of what I spend into my kids 529 fund so I put everything I can on it.  I tried to put my dually on it but the dealer didnt want to honor the deal I cut if I was going to use the credit card.

Credit score system is a joke, a good banker will admit that to you even. I have a great credit score, don?t ask me why or how. I don?t do anything particular in fact it used to be 100 pts lower when I actually used credit all the time. I say get a good banker and make sure he knows who the customer is in that relationship.  :tongue:

So, pushing the project right along, I had the shotgun lovin pre-ranger hold the trim pieces up while I screwed them down. Then with these nice neoprene flat knee pads I scored, I set about screwing down seven sections of 40 year green metal roof metal

And then there's this:

Burn day coming up pdq. Plan is to remove a percentage of it and burn close by, then push remainder into basement and burn it there. Remove metal, take to scrap yard and donate money to some young men who are struggling, then clean the site up for what's next

Not that you asked for suggestions or need extra work but some matching curved braces on the pavilion there would tie it together nicely.

Why yes they would.

I am doing that as well, you'd see it in a week give or take.

This time I have seven posts, so 14 arches, all matching and slightly different, as I will simply cut them from a 48" 2 X 12

Then some trim paint on the butter trim, then the gutters, then the end pieces and soffits to complete

We have burned a couple houses down. We donate them to the fire department who do training while they burn the house down. Then the house is considered a donation for tax purposes.
If that is what you intend with the burn day post?

I had given a thought, but decided to do it myself. But maybe I should do that and then make a donation to the VFD for the service...

Don are you going to apply some sort of environmentally safe finish to that wood you just put up?   I have heard of making your own linseed stain and oils but never dug much Further into the topic.

The outdoor stuff on the market now is good for about two rain storms and some light dog traffic in my experience

I already laid down my usual base coat of DDT. Will follow up with something caustic.

Actually over the DDT, I think I'll lather some paint onto the trim, a green perhaps to match the biggish water tanks, then apply some home made stain onto the cedar and pine.

I start with a base of mineral spirits, then add linseed oil, along with some pigment. Honey colored or oxford brown works well with this type of wood.

Also laying down the MS and Linseed then allowing to weather gray, then covering with  this wood preservative stuff, which I can't remember the name of just now, well use slave labor (My children) to paint that stuff on later on

But yea, tree hugger water based stuff is only good for other tree huggers. It does not actually work on anything, so I shy away from that stuff same as I do them!

Oh you'll love this. Being the CHRISTmas season right now, I am having a heck of a good time laying on the "Merry Christmas" and "God Bless yous" to all these marty milktoast seaweed suckin confused/fat/stupid children/people that look like adults out there. I do it early on to get the reaction. If I'm lucky and I get that coy little smile, then it's game on. Thank you man, and isn't it great celebrating Jesus's birthday? Gotta just love God!

We don?t have that here to much.   In a work meeting my manager said merry Christmas than asked me after if they should have said that.    I told her if she celebrated Christmas than merry Christmas it IS!!

Yeah, the way I keep my credit rating up is use 2 credit cards to buy everything and pay them off each month and never pay interest.

One of the cards puts 2% of what I spend into my kids 529 fund so I put everything I can on it.  I tried to put my dually on it but the dealer didnt want to honor the deal I cut if I was going to use the credit card.

Charlie Mike, Sir.....

We do the same thing. EVERYTHING goes on a credit card that can, and gets paid off monthly. We use the Alaska Airlines card, and as a result rarely pay for a flight (use points). And credit cards have better fraud protection than debit too.

Not to dot anymore, but...my hunting partner and his wife tried to buy a new bumper pull the other day. They wouldn't give him a loan even though they make about 100k between them...no history pay cash for everything. .the 350k house with perfect payment history didn't count. The trailer dealer told him to go buy a new truck first because it would be easier, then come back when the truck was paid off, to show good credit. Smh

Cold day spent down farmside today. Not Sam kind of cold, but nearing 0F with a bit of breeze is really cold for us. This global warming is about to freeze me to death

So plan for the day was to get the out-house loaded, transported, then mounted to the frame I built for it this past summer.

We used the truck's winch to get the thing loaded onto the snow covered trailer.

We really paid attention to strapping it down, cribbing and blocking. The result was an event free transport along the twisties to the off load site.

Once there, it was pretty easily moved with the 4720, although the sloppy ground made the short move dicey at times
