The use of the crane and pre made trusses gets me pretty jealous. I lifted and set the LVL's and the double 2x12 ridge beam all by myself



The dog watched


The cat inspected


Every once and awhile I took a break


But not for too long

I like how the garage is not done yet, but you already have satellite hooked up!

That dish got moved more times than belly dancers hips at a dance off. There is only one spot in my yard that gets reception, if you notice its in just about every picture on a different spot. I was so happy to finally mount it permananet

Is It just me? Is it possible to get one in the right spot ever without a spill?

I normally use a larger one, and immediately transfer to a plastic beverage jug, or old oil container, and once in a blue moon take the old stuff in large quantities. I just have to use that on my Ducati.

In answer, I have never found one that works well, certainly not well enough to transfer in the container. I actually just picked up a standard open pan, because I figure simple is better. Other than the one pictured, I have one of the big ones that is a pan with a drain to a reservoir underneath. That one is just too thick.

I use a good low profile oil pan, then suck the oil out into storage containers.

Vacuum, some tubing and a few fittings and you can draw the oil right out into a gallon jug.

I transfer my used oil into a 20 gallon oil drum used at a local bakery. I pick it up for $5 and it holds a good season and a half worth of oil. Only one trip to drop of the sludge.

I use a 5 gallon plastic gas can. Drain the oil into one of those black oil change containers then transfer to the 5 gallon plastic gas can. When it is full I take it to Advance auto and put it in their container for recycling. They won't take the containers the new oil came in so I thought of the gas can idea.

Mobil one comes in 5 and 4 quart containers. I pour it in those some times. Make sure you mark them as used oil. I almost filled my bike with old oil because I put the old Mobil 1 container next to the new ones.

Rain should be good for it.

Where's the blow out, bow and termites.

Down here it has to be 5 feet from the property line.

I thought that odd too, but the inspector said that is not an issue here.

Setbacks for dwellings are generally larger than accessory buildings.

Nice start.
