    No, I just dealt with what was there on the property. The place was a wreck that I completely gutted (down to bare studs) and added on to. It's the pic before the one you quoted. What's the prob in Boulder County?

    Since I haven't gone through the process and I have gotten info 2nd hand I can't speak for all of the issues, but one of the main ones is getting a permit. They have lines of recommended and approved fixtures/materials etc, but then don't approve them. The restrictions are very tight and getting tighter all the time.

    In the mountains they are trying to pass a building code that would prevent people from building more than ~2000 sq ft home (they claim they took the average of all homes in the mountains and added 12%), but here's the kicker...if you pay a few hundred thousand more to open space funds then you still can build your McMansion.

    You did some great work on your place. I would like a home just like that but a little bigger for my primary house.

    Thanks. It's only 850 sq ft, so yes, it's small. We may retire there, though. I love small, well designed homes. That sounds lame, but Boulder sounds like our town in Mass. On one hand, it feels restrictive, but on the other hand, it's how towns can maintain their "character".... In VT, though, I didn't have to apply for any permits, go through any inspections or adhere to any zoning codes. I felt like a homesteader in the wild west, but I built it to last, anyhow!

    I'm loving this thread.

    Unfortunately, I'm to busy "building shit" to shoot and post. That will change soon though... On June 1st, I wrap up this long term project and become a slum lord for the first time.

    It consumed my ski season, but it wont get kayaking... yeah!

    RE:wine rack issues to watch for - when we did our cellar we used a mix of single bottle racks and the diagonal cubes. Two things came up that suck - many large burgundy style bottle don't fit into the single bottle racks we got and then they are a problem in the cubes as well 'cause the sloped necks let them want to slide out when stacked. Consider buying single racks that are definitely big enough for burg bottles.

    Great Thread!

    I've been restoring cars with my fam for the last 10 years off and on. The current project:

    A 1959 Ford Retractable (hard top convertible) before the restoration.


    Disassembled - the body on a rotisserie.


    Frame before.


    Frame restored:


    Body freshly painted.


    Body & Frame together.


    Me - laying it down.


    We just put the deck lid on, and are working on the roof. Hopefully will be done before the end of the summer.

    Here's a finished '59 (my avatar) that was done in 2004. Simply beautiful.

    I just finished the latest garage pieces of a long workbench and shelving unit to fill in the last wall. Not beautiful, but sturdy as hell.



    Oh, and there are a few metal fasteners in there.

    Built this beastoid during my senior year of high school. Since then I haven't had much time to finish up the roof and make it aesthetically pleasing. Stands about 30 feet tall. Was pretty cool to view our ponds/property from that perspective for the first time. Quite sketchy getting the 5 main support columns up; though now it's sturdy as hell.

    Nice ride, BestShow! Is that roof original?

    Wandrin*, you could have saved a few bucks and used a slightly less superior attachment methode, and it's good enough for MRG!:

    That does have a very similar look to it.

    There is some amazingly cool stuff on this thread.

    I believe you used your "two hands" for the patio and wall, but wonder if you used only your hands to do your part making the boy? What were ya aiming at, a glass vial?
    If some of the best times of my life were skiing the UP in -40 wind chill with nothing but jeans, cotton long johns and a wine flask to keep warm while sleeping in the back of my dad's van... does that make me old school?

    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.
    These gates are on that new building on 8th Ave N just off Dexter in Seattle, aren't they? Nice work man, they are very cool!

    Edit: After seeing those other pics, they are definitely from 8th Ave N. Small world man, I live less than a block away.

    yep, it sure is. Thanks for the compliment. Are you new to Seattle? Your location says BC, if so, welcome.............

    And, those cars are absolutely beautiful. I have a lot of admiration for somebody that has the patience to wrack their damn knuckles over and over again.

    This shot shows the rock walkway I made a few months ago too. I also built the deck in the background. Actually, come to think of it, I built the whole damn backyard.
    NICE! I love whalers, but keeping the woodwork shipshape takes a lot of time and work.

    Not nearly as crafty as your deck Root, awesome work, but this sucker was a real bitch.

    Built by my brother & I. Everything you see in the pics was hand carried up 36 stairs. Yes, i have 36 stairs to get to my deck.
