      I bought a new toilet for my laundry room. Getting a $75 rebate from the water department. Also some discount remnant linoleum to put up in there.

      So, I'll have a pretty sporty new place to shit/do laundry here shortly.

        Not that I have a big ass, but the round toilets are just too small. Hope you got the elongated. It's disgudting when you have to tuck your junk under the rim.

        also, only way to do toilet seat is hard surface (usually plastic). No fuzzy seats, no cushioned seats.

        Did if you go for the style with separate pee and poo buttons?

            In the middle of putting up a new pipe fence along the frontage road. Post and top rail style with 5 foot horse fence on. Man welding in this weather sucks ass. Also, nearly finished making daughters loft bed with a desk underneath. Got a new Mig welder about 6 months ago and finally started some projects.

                  I have finished my converted barn to patio. All I need is a ridge cap and some paint now. I was cheap and reused some of the self tappers that I pulled out during demo. I paid for it. Since they were used, they couldn't drill through the schedule 40 pipe the barn is built out of, so I had to pre-dill 150 holes before I put the screws in. Just about whooped my ass.

                    So I'm thinking about upgrading my thermostat. I've been considering getting a Nest. Wondering if anyone here has any experience with them or any recommendations.

                        I don't have it, but friends that do. No complaints.

                          They look pretty legit and my thermostats just look old and shitty. Plus the local power company has a $100.00 rebate when you get one.

                            I have a Honeywell smart thermostat and I really like it.

                              Buying a new construction home, moving in next week. Probably will be stopping in here a bit.

                              Anyone know anything about staining furniture? Got some dining room chairs that need an espresso stain.
