    Thanks. That is the only boat I have built and it took about 6 months. It's 17'-6" long and weighs about 37 lbs. I was made to be used so I dont mind if it gets scraped up a bit. A little light sanding and a fresh coat of varnish and its brand new again.

    Thanks! (You guys are making me blush!) Yes, that's me with the tubing/luge run. I want to put a pond in, too, and then I'm looking into hosting the Winter Olympics for 2018... I want it to be a family rec center, so we can just chill and hang there all weekend.

    Your post and beam work looks very impressive. I'm thinking about a kit from Country Carpenters for my garage/guest house. I love the aesthetic, and how they can erect it in about a day. I'd want to insulate it though, so I guess you have to use the insulated panels. Do you have any expertise or ideas about this? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    No, you don't have to use the panels BD, especially if you go for an all wood (t&G) "sheathing". Talk to those guys regarding what you want to accomplish and they should send you in the right direction. I'll pm you some panel links of companies I've used. They make sense on big jobs, but if yur doing the work yourself and want to save some money, there are alternatives.

    Built this and put in the slider with my Dad two weekends ago, definitely stoked on the results.

    I am proud of these pedestrian gates. I only have a pic of one of the three, but everything was hand bent and placed as I built it. No drawings, just an idea.

    That is fucking sick. Where do you live? We could violate rich people together.

    We are closing on a house next week, I need ten feet of very modern handrail. I wish I could weld.

    ^ That should be in the "man cave" thread!

    PS- Just guessing that it's Budweiser on tap...?

    Really? Damn, I didn't remember posting it the first (2nd, 3rd?) time, but it would explain why those photos are in my random photobucket account...

    Better get to making kayaks or designer barbed wire spiked gates...

    Cool, I won't tell you. I'd hate to damage your delicate sensibilities

    wow!

    Thanks for the great words!

    Rootskier, I am in the great northwest, but really can ship anywhere.

    I build artisticly inspired automated gates and fencing. I love it when I get to be creative with a job.

    Dough, you rock.
    Root rocks.
    Big D rocks.
    I can't remember everybody.
    Kayak builder dude rocks.
    So many impressive accomplishments.
    Here are this and thats from my household:
    First my wife used to make quilts of her own design. Here is one:

    Cabinetry is expensive! My wife saw a kitchen in a magazine and we approximated the shelves.

    My wife tiled the wall above the stove.

    My younger daughter crafts with furious intensity. This is one of the multitude of her creations.

    Landscaping: brutal, back breaking labor that really is worth it!
    Starting out...

    Almost done.

    A friend gave me an old ski lift chair from Mount Baker that was made into a bench. Wife and I stripped the rust, removed the nasty old seat and back covers, and made it a shop bench.
    Hillshire Farm is sexy

    Grab both cheeks and sink your teeth into the ass of life.

    Nice shit Gordyman. Tell me about how you anchored the intermediate shelf, here. It looks like you just used 3/4 galvanized pipe, right? I have curtain rods that are similar...but with black pipe.

    I didn't really build the parts for it, but I rebuilt the engine on my 94 4runner. There was great satisfaction when it started without hesitation on the first try when it was in the car again. A few select pictures from the process:
