Party at my house


There must be a good carpenter or two in your area---

I jokingly asked the preacher next door if he could pray for a framer to help me---

Sure enough, right after the service a carpenter came knocking----he had a friend ---that guy was a top notch framer with a skilled assistant---

Start asking everyone you know---a good framer is worth the cost----that guy was cheap---his hourly rate was high,but his production was amazing--thus--cheap--

The tarps worked great up to 80mph wind. I used fender washers and screws every 12" along the edges.
Some 1x6 or 1x8s with a couple of screws along the perimeter and 1 or 2 across the whole thing in the middle, so the tarp doesn't balloon, work wonders. Just make sure the boards are down tight.

Every 12", no wonder you needed to save so much energy at the end of the work day.

No chit, sometimes it's tough just getting the tools back into the truck!

Oh how I hated that last detail. Sun roasted and tired to the bone and still a long way from the shower.

My wife and I had not been dating a year yet when I had her over for a cookout. I prepared a sirloin on the Hibachi that was incinerated to carbon on the outside and still cold on the inside with more of a lighter fluid taste then anything else. I have not been allowed to operate a grill since then.
