Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Spinz Building a backyard fireplace










It started off as a firerock fireplace kit and I added about 100 concrete blocks to it to give it some mass and aesthetic appeal.......i have been working on this for approximately 2 weeks.......I started off by digging a very large footing, inserting rebar and then i had a concrete truck come and i made approx 40 trips with a wheelbarrow back and forth to the concrete truck , dumping the concrete in the footing......i didn't have to go to the gym that day......i then had to take a break for 4 days while a crew of guys laid down pavers......the pre engineered fireplace kit assembled like legos.....and now im finishing it up with stone veneer.....a lot of work.

I thought having my own smokehouse if I ever got a piece of land would be nice.

Added block and made a wood box underneath the area where space is for grill, 2 days to veneer and day to point and about 2 days to erect and wait in between bad weather

Firebox before extra block work, isokern kit

flashy, very nice.....thats a lot of work there........did you do that by yourself?

Did you put a spark arrestor in the top cap?

Its going to take me at least 2-3 days to grout and strike this....im probably going to get carpal tunnel from squeezing the grout bag and filling up all those joints with mortar.

Only the truth, you took that unfinished place with lots of potential and turned it into a beautiful upscale house. You have custom made almost every thing...by hand.

How long has this project being going on? I forgot where the original thread was about placing a low ball bid on the property was but it's been a few years.
