I start the framing tomorrow. I have a framer with 25 years experience [and who doesn't drink] showing up at 7am so things should move quickly.
Hey Bear, did you ever clean out that bird bath that I shit in while I was at your house?

If you have the next benz meet at your place, I guarantee you that we can give that nosy neighbor bitch something to rattle about!

Once done, it will get a stone surface. The garage shell is wood siding and brick to match the house.
It's obviously a detached garage: How far is it from the house?

The back hoe guy keeps knocking it over and then picking it back up. I think it has been sprayed. So you are good.

It is about 40-45 feet, I haven't measured [will do so today].

I am standing right in front of the garage door area taking this picture. The pallets of retaining wall block Mesa Retaining Wall System, Kentucky Concrete Products and Block - Meade Concrete Products/Block and Stone are about 25 feet long. The blacktop is about 38 from original garage to pool [left of pic]

Second pic is from the back door. The poles are the previous owners attempt at a "covered patio". They are going down as soon as the building inspector leaves the scene with the garage. I don't feel like going back for more permits.

^ Sounds like Jody's down for a five-way right behind the old broad's house.

Jody, you're not a squirter by chance, are you?
