Deck renovation redwood stain before after

Okay let's get started. Chris? Present. Okay, item one: paint the deck. Behr redwood semi-transparent. Two gallons coated it twice (barely) with each coat taking a couple hours.

Sauna teardown renovation

Item two: sauna. Why anyone would build wood straight onto concrete I cannot imagine, but that meant the sauna had to go.

Item three: hill behind the fence. Jon wreaked excellent havoc with the sawzall, I simply raked the vertical foot of branches and leaves to the bottom of the grade. I'm hoping the scotch grass I planted will fare well.
And ScottD sent me a bunch of photos from the animal park last week.

Connie's darkroom work, or in her words, 'I gots it in my flickrs!' In fact, I'll leave you with one more quote from the excitable one...

i want an A. i want an A. i want an A. i already calculate getting docked points for assignment 2 since i turned in one out of two prints required. that's a C right there. assignment 1 all turned in, but images not impressive.. at least not compared to yours and curts of solarized car parts. so that's a B. i need two A+'s to counteract assignment 1 and 2. assignment 3, my metering is all over the place...docked points right there!!! I won't get an A!!! i wont get an A!!!!


Thought I was your sawzall captain. And why is it that you do all the fun sawzall'n and sauna bustin' when I'm not around? Put up a photo of the back hill.

Nice job. The difference is like night and day.


Oh I get it, cause one of the photos was taken at night...

I'm visiting Baby Moe in June. Pool party?

I red myself

For whatever reason I decided to do the fences this weekend. Well, I decided to start the fences. I'm maybe half done.

More milestones

There was a scnax event this weekend. I stopped by to shoot a couple rolls and a few megs. The contact sheets are looking promising, we'll see if there's anything I can use for the final.


Having brought in the railing to align with the support pillars, there was an extra bit of usable space around the edges of the deck. So I turned it into planters.
