Default Keeping busy during lock down

Hi Folks,

As some of you may have noticed, I haven't been very active here in a while. Covid 19 caused my paycheck to lower to only 60% so I found ways to make ends meet. here are a few pictures of some of the things I did; Doggy feeders from live edge walnut slabs, Costco plastic shed assembly, privacy fence with lattice work and I also managed to find time to stain my deck and fence and a planter I made back in 2003.
I am back to work as of today Aug. 3rd, but I can only travel if I have confirmed appointments. I am not complaining, some are worse of than me.
Cheers,

Dan

No moss growing on you! Glad you’ve used the extra time to get things done - best way to avoid the doom and gloom of a pandemic. Your projects look well done - is that a dog washing station or what?! Hope you get back to 100% soon...

I like that fence, I believe they call that a good neighbor fence because it looks great on both sides. Nice planter box also.

What is the stub out in the shed pad for?

Kept you off the streets and out of trouble. Nice work all round. I am also wondering about the plumbing. Looks like it's in the new shed. The circular construction is really nicely done, and the fence is really well done and very attractive. Time well spent. I am always surprised when I go East at the lack of fencing around properties. The first thing we did out here on the edge of the Mojave Desert was have a a new fence installed. Privacy walls close in would have been cheaper, but it makes clear lines on what you are obligated to maintain. Our back yard is almost one acre, and the work involved just in weeding is too much anymore.

Nicely done, Dan!
That valve looks like either a pool filter or irrigation control?

Thanks Brian,

There are 2 different dog feeders one short for a small dog that I sold for $75 and a taller one for my best friend's Huskey that I gave him free of charge, after all, what are friends for ! BTW 42yrs of putting up with me, he introduced me to my better half.
