Default some random backyard pics...since I haven't posted anything in a while

when we bought this house about 18 months ago the backyard was rock-hard clay, no grass...the guy had two large dogs that essentially tore it all up. Pic on the right is today, finally have some grass (and the new fence)...just thought I'd post pics for no apparent reason...and because it's a minor miracle that I managed to grow something green...



teh shed/future workshop



finally fixed up the porch a bit..still have a few projects to do.



had to build some new steps to the porch, the old ones were completely rotted out. this pic is wierd, makes it look like the posts are slanted. I had to go check after looking at it, but in reality they're straight/parallel. Must be some kind of camera lens effect



the old steps

too many friction losses

The screened-in porch looks great and the grass looks really good too.

Very Nice.

In the picture I quoted what is going in the garage? Is the project car you have in there?

Right now it has some spare car parts (in big plastic bins), a few spare doors/windows/original seats for the GT6 in it. But mostly it has house-related stuff (2x4s, table saw, extra roofing and tiles, etc) and all the yard stuff (mower, edger, wheelbarrow, etc). Basically it is the "dump" place for anything non-car-related so I can keep my garage limited to my automotive stuff without dealing with rakes and lawn mowers being in the way.

The garage is crowded enough as it is



That said, last year i did use the shed to store the body of the GT6 while I was doing the frame-off restoration. quite convenient. Every day I live here I thank the previous owner for getting a zoning and HOA variance to build the oversize shed



Eventually the plan is to finish the interior and weatherproof it, run power to it, and make it into a shop where I can put drill press, air compressor, woodworking tools, etc. Can't afford to do it right now though...so for now it's just a big shed. It has a heavy-duty plywood floor, but I'm not sure if it can support the weight of a full car though...it's not built on a slab/concrete, it's built on 6x6 posts base (to keep it a "shed" vs. "garage" for zoning purposes).

I dig it, thanks for sharing... when I graduate college and get my own place, it's going to have a huge garage, or a garage and shed for a separate work area

Move to Oklahoma...a buddy of mine just picked up a 10-year old large house with a deep-bay 3-car garage for like $200k in Tulsa. And he's going to build 2-bay workshop behind it.

I sympathize with you though...here is the garage at my previous house (yes...more pics). The day we bought the new place with the garage I was on cloud nine...

seeded...last spring, and last fall, and this spring. The ground back there was literally sun-baked clay and hard as a rock. I tilled it up as best i could but I will admit I did a ghetto job and didn't put down topsoil (too cheap/lazy!).

There are still some bare spots you can't really see in the pics, but I'm trying to take care of them. The goal is to have the grass in great shape by next year when my daughter is old enough to play in it. I've lived in townhouses for so many years I am definitely still learning about how to do "yard stuff" lol...
