    Shelves, work bench, lifts, welding table, steel rack, etc. will be after final inspection. The less inspectors know the better !

    Aunt and uncle built an illegal (per code) in-law apartment onto their home. I saw the blueprints & my what a hell of a “sewing room”.... all 1500 sq feet plus garage parking.

    Landscape mat vs. traditional straw. Supposed to promote faster grass growth. Dunno, thought I would try it.

    Your timing is pretty much perfect, given the weather we're getting right now. Hope you didn't get too much rain.

    Few hours of hard steady drizzle, should be perfect to get it started. I actually started sprinklers yesterday evening.

    Hard to tell from the pics how the area drains.
    Any concern about water coming down that big slope up to the house?

    (Place looks awesome).
