    Decorated for Christmas. When we sold our old house and moved to a condo we got rid of most of the outdoor decorations figuring we wouldn't need them. Then sold the condo and bought a house again - so had to buy a bunch of stuff again.

    Thanks. We bought a place in Winston Salem NC. My wife is there, I am still working in SE Michigan. She did not want to spend another winter here.

    nice looking deck and roof.

    If I had a hot tub, it would for sure be in a enclosed area, preferably insulated, that way you can hop into it when theres a foot of snow outside, and not freeze your junk off :p

    I've thought about insulating it a bit. Also thought about putting a small gas fire place out there. The hot tub does put off alot of steam when open so not sure what kind of moisture issues I would have. Going to take awhile to finish it like we want though. We are leaving the ceiling unfinished for now so I can run wiring. Then I gotta finish staining it and screen it in. Plus now I need to build a step down deck to the side to hold the grill and smoker.

    The guys worked yesterday, said they should be able to finish up on Monday

    Looks like closing date might get pushed back a few days. The seller was listed as "Estate" when, in fact, it was titled in all the names of the heirs. So an addendum had to be drafted and signed by everyone. Now they have to get all 4 of them plus their spouses to sign the sales contract document instead of just the executor signature. I am slightly irritated over it, but we should still get it done within the approved time window. We were hoping to get in a week or so early.

    Smoke Hollow propane, 36in model I think. Wife got it off Amazon for Christmas last year. Have only used it a couple times but works pretty good for my limited experience smoking ability

    I have been trying to justify getting one. Not sure though. My wife is putting up the tree today in the house we just bought, so that's something.

    I think I'd get an electric next time. I don't like babysitting the temps

    Installing laminate flooring in the lower level. Makes me remember why I got out of the floor covering installation biz.
