We had a sweet smoker like that, but during the winter we had to store it outside. Well, living near a 400 acre forest in Langley means wildlife sometimes takes over. I had a family of small rodents who made the smoker their home = no more smoker.

Charles has been giving me some great ideas. Im new to this whole house modding thing so im just learning about modern design and whatnot. its pretty similar to modding a car.
Good choice on the style, it's very nice.
You'll find your style when it comes to the place. It's a lot like modding a car in that there are so many ways to go about it. But modding a house has it's own challenges. Do it right though, and you'll love coming home after work.

i installed 2 recessed lights in my shower today - special waterproof fixtures. pretty easy - take a 4" hole saw to the ceiling, run some wires (i ran them off an existing heat lamp, dowgraded the wattage on the heatlamp from 250w to 150w because the heatlamp is just..... too hot.) then i ran the wires through the ceiling , connected them and voila, it works.

Thanks Tora, Jeff and zee


It's a Broil King and still works good but is about 5 seasons old..Looking at getting Napolean N/G piped into the house lines....Also did about a 100 24" x 24" paving stones under the deck will have some shots of that after it stops raining. Dam they are heavy about 75-85 pounds each.

Nice work snowman!
I love the lighting too. So simple, but it makes such a huge statement. Plus the planter boxes and bonsai trees, very, very nice.

<blush> Thanks for the compliments.

Why stop at one smoker when you can have 3?

thanks... yes they were a pita to get. Is the deck a ground level or less then a couple of feet off the ground. How friendly are you with your neighbors or how close are they to the deck? I had the biggest beotch at city hall that made me revise the plans like 5-6 times before even accepting them. Then once she did accept them she sent me a letter a month later stating I had to make another 11-13 changes? WTF.... I had a friend that is a civil engineer turn my hand drawn plans & make it all to code and everything. He couldn't believe how much of a cow she was being.... She had me redo almost every drawing of the house, site plan, north profile, south profile, east profile, materials being use, grades of wood, strength of concrete mix, etc etc... I put the original plans in around June and didn't get approved plans till Oct..... I'm still have to get final inspection done next week because they wanted me to change some things. Plus there was a roof put on the side of the house before I bought it last June that has been there for over ten years and they what me to tear it down before they will give me final approval of the deck which has nothing to do with the deck and is over 70' away from the deck and is on another side of the house....

If you never built a deck have some one that's done it before help you... One of my mom's friend's is retired and I was basically his helper. I learned a crap load from him but did as much as I could myself. Between me pulling all the permits, doing the design and lay outs of the blue prints, to picking and trying out how much materials and fasteners I would need, to nailing and cutting.

I can't remember the mix as it's been Oct since we did that, I think it was gray with red writing. The base of the post's had to be below the frost line about 18" and is 26"x26" but that may change from city to city, the 6x6" treated post sits on a galvanised post base on to a 8"x8" collum we used a foam vapor sealer to help prevent the bottom of the post from rotting. The stairs was the coolest design I has scene. We took two 10" x2" one for each side and tongue and grooved it for the stair treads and stringers. The fit and finish is amazing and Rob said it is way stronger too. Plus you can go with a 10x2 instead of notching big chunks out of a 12"x2".

The biggest thing is the wood make sure you go to a few lumber yards and get quotes also look at the wood you are buying... You would be amazed how much crap the try to sneak pass you. Buy about 10-15% more materials then you need. That way you don't either have to make another trip to the lumber yard (costing you time and money) or paying for another delivery charge, and you can save that crap load 8' piece(s) of wood with nots, bark etc on it to return it rather then using 2' of it because you don't have any other peices to use or the time to run out and back yet again.
