We custom built and have been in one year and I already want to do fudge to improve it. It never ends.

Shed? That’s not a shed, this (going to be) is a shed!

I am also planning a shed project . . . or a theater room - not sure which I want to sink my money into yet . . .

haha
I was wondering what you guys might call it.
Smaller sheds are called garden sheds here, and bigger ones like mine above are simply sheds.

In my neck of the woods that would be called an outbuilding or a barn. I’d love to have a setup like that to work on my cars in.

My uncle actually built a Barndominium. His plan is to move his company into the barn portion so that he can work from home. He restores classic cars.

The washing machine drain quit functioning. I checked to make sure there were no clogs in the elbow and finally decided the problem was outside of the house. Yesterday I spent the afternoon digging 2 3' deep holes, 1 to locate the line the other at the suspected problem area. In hole #2 I found a 3" gap between the line coming from the house and the line going to the septic/drain field. :evil: Apparently someone thought piling a few rocks around the gap would ensure proper function.

Our house was built in 1876 and had a redneck engineer for an owner from the mid 50's through the late 90's. Every time I have to to something on the house I run in to the most drymounted up fudge you can imagine, however this particular incident is most likely the doing of the last owner.
I'm not someone else.

Anyone have a suggestion for a wifi garage door opener/monitor? My wife doesn't seem to think that leaving the garage door open that opens to a dark alley in Chicago which has scrap hauling trucks pass through every hour is that big of deal.

it is, however, a quick way to clean out your garage. I have this one Here, but truthfully I have never used the online part of it. You might check if the maker of your current opener sells a wifi add on. They are significantly cheaper than a new opener.

We have some shitty Craftsman opener with the add-on deal that you plug a network cable into. It's effectively connected to an app in the cloud and if you tap the garage icon, it acts just like a normal press of the button. I think all in, you can get the setup for $200-300.
