This is nothing like a bot which is attached for the purpose of creating artificial numbers. These bots can get a jump in numbers in the thousands every day, which has nothing whatsoever to do with the people who have actually viewed a particular thread.
Unless someone actually clicks on this particular thread, no additional number should show.

German House Rebuild


Ok, I was in my yard enjoying my new privacy, fire and a beer and I heard a noise and saw Kilroy. Top of a head, eye's and a nose over the top of my new fence. It was the neighbor's brothers wife. First thing was "Why did you build the fence?" This is just too funny. I have 2 more boards left and they will go up in a couple days. No more free peeks into my life, "I hope".

Dorf Dude -

You may need more than two boards if she gets a longer ladder.

That is a comfortable way to get rid of the old wood scraps.

If they get too curious/nosy, you may have to sneak over there and board up their 2nd floor windows.

I was hoping you were going to say your neighbors name is Wilson from the show Home Improvement!

What did you reply? I would have found it very hard to resist the urge to say something like, "to prevent this very situation."

Looks like you have few evenings of enjoying the "fire pit" with Mia and tempting he neighbor's sister-in-law. There must have been someone else there because Mia was not looking at the camera and smiling the way she usually does.

Do you have any uses planned for the rest of the covered wood?

There is nothing under the silver cover except a concrete wall. I will cut it all up into firewood. Mia had caught a whiff of something. She is always on alert. The local Cottonwood's are starting to let the "Fluff" go. I'm so glad mine is cut down. It is Sunday morning here and I hope to get a big dent in the rest of the wood pile today. dorf dude...

I decided against cutting up wood and worked on the garden area along the front instead. I already planted wild flowers for the bees at the concrete wall. You can see them coming up. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

Hi my name is Dave and I just had to join this site specifically to thank you for this thread . I too have done a lot of remodeling work for myself and others. I have checked in often on this site but have not registered to post a reply until now but figurd if I am one who is adding to the numbers I should at least introduce myself and probably say that there are probably a lot of others out there like myself who just look and lurk in the background. You have done a lot of very interesting things here that are unique and I applaud your artistic qualities. Thank you.
Dave

Today I got another roll down shutter in and I totally screwed it up. Note to self, when you measure the band, drop the shutter so you know the full length! I ended up having to splice the band because I cut it too short. I butted the 2 bands and sewed them together. It is a temp fix. I hope it lasts 20 years. Inside the return box is a metal tang the band has to attach to. I heated up a screw and melted a hole. This works much better than cutting a slit. It bonds all the weave ends together so it won't fray. I also hit both ends of the bands that got spliced with a lighter for the same reason. Here are a couple pic's. I hope you understand what I'm trying to explain. You can see the 1st hole I melted at the splice. dorf dude...
