    Thanks and hey, if it turns out it's overbuilt, then so be it.

    Lol yeah, I'll have to keep an eye on the amount of snow that accumulates on there. It has a slight rake but not enough when a 2-foot snowstorm hits.
    I have a roof rake that will come in handy.


    Lol no. She might be the big kitty in the house, but there actually are 2 felines roaming around.

    Yesterday, finished the outside of the new catio.
    I still need to build fun things inside and a bunch of steps/shelves, places for them to sit on and enjoy the day, but it's done.
    The plan is to install a screen pet door in the window screen, so they can go in and out through that basement window.
    I built a little platform on the other side for them to get up to the window and get down, since it's about a 5 foot drop from that window to the basement floor

    Did a makeshift safe-distancing Halloween 2020 setup.
    Kids and parents all loving it.
    Kids walk up, say "Truck or Treat!" and candy comes down the pipe.
    Like a video game where they end up with candy! :lol:

    We didn't get a single person this year. We never seem to get many, but this year there were none. A little surprised because we have some new neighbors, with kids, and they had lots of Halloween decorations out.

    It was like 1 house out of 4 that was passing it out. The ones that were passing it out were going all out. Full size candy bars, hostas cakes and one couple was handing out spiked hot cider, boxes of crayons, boxes of markers, coloring books and candy. It was the good crayons and markers too lol. Hot cider was damn good. Are you guys back in Michigan or SC?

    To add to things actually done to the house, I recently completed the deck railing. Went with a black Wild Hog railing setup, 4" squares, about 42" tall overall. The Wild Hog panels are 36" tall, plus about 4" below and the wood thicknesses below/above. The top pieces are 2x6 cedar. I used my table saw to cut grooves into the pieces of wood for the railing panels to sit into, then the toppers have their own grooves on the bottom for the top of the panels to sit into. Love the final look. Still have to do the railing for the stairs.
