    Design is coming together. I want to put a tin roof over the doors all the way to the left edge and have a hanging daybed underneath.

    Yeah from several years ago, but living in Oklahoma means every year you get a hail storm and could probably claim it. There are some spots on the roof that are real bad, they were blown away it wasn't leaking, so I want to get it done before it starts freezing.

    we might be do for some of those things soon. our house is about ten years old now. gotten a few big storms, and then the annual small ones. you ever get those storm chaser insurance people? our first year in our house my wife was home when they came by and she authorized them to do an inspection. i got home and told them to go the hell away. nowadays i put a sign on my door saying don't even ask to inspect.

    I have a no solicitation sign, but I don't live in the "city" so there usually isn't a lot of foot traffic. I have a trusted general contractor that handles any work I need done anyways.

    Didn't have to buy the pocket hole jig, my step dad has one that he's never used so I now possess that indefinitely. It's the K4 but should work just great.

    Here's the project I'm attempting (for my Kamado grill):
