This picture could qualify for the Sales Brochure to the Condo community. Great Job on the Deck, very nice.

Outstanding job, Phil! I'm quite jealous!

Yeah, pretty much.

The pattern must be playing tricks on your eyes. There's only two levels.

Upon further review, I have decided I want to be 25 again, single, and have a place like this.

I for one expect you to put that digi camera to good use at all the right times. Please have no less than five full memory sticks with you at the ChiefsPlanet gathering. I'll make sure and get you some Natty Light. :D

I don't drink Natty Light anymore. I just display the sign. I'm a poser.

So, does it ever rain? Would that be a problem for the hammock?

Also, what is the point of having the two levels? Creativity? It's not bad, I'm just wondering.

The level next to the bar is raised. That serves 2 purposes:

1. It makes the height of the bar more comfortable.
2. It allows individuals under 6'4" to see the pool on the lower level. The entire bar overlooks the pool - which was kinda the point of putting the bar (and raised deck) there.

The hammock is designed to be outdoor furniture. It is resistent to rain and the resulting mildew. This is not your grandfather's canvas hammock.

It rains in the "winter". There's also rain during monsoon (which should be next month).

The hammock is designed for outdoor use. Water won't hurt it.

Awesome. Well done. :toast:

Looks very nice, gentlemen. :clap:

I hope you got paid up front for your efforts though, Phil. I suspect Brian's "entertainment" budget for the summer will crimp his cash flow... :p

Phobia

Thanks y'all. You guys are too kind. It was a rewarding project. I get to have the pictures and hopefully land similar, more lucrative projects in the future based upon the evidence. The thing isn't perfect, but it's pretty darn good for my first effort at a functional outdoor living space. I've done many decks, but function is generally left to the imagination of the homeowner after I've gone.

I'm particularly proud of the design elements. I had a lot of fun doing it and I know Brian is going to have fun enjoying the space for a long time and then he'll enjoy the fat check from the increased resell value, too. Heh.

That's fat "check", not fat "chick".

I guess so, I guess what I thought was the third level was actually a decorative seam. Here is the picture that deceived me.

Again I think you chose wisely with this investment.

Yeah, Endelt is definately a two level drunk. It takes years of experience to become a three level drunk.

Well, in your defense - the "level" on the far left had an additional coat of sealant applied a couple hours before that photo was taken. The level in the middle had had several days of AZ sun beating on it, so that's what you're picking up. In a couple days they'll both look very similar.

Damn, can I have your skills please?

Phobia
06-05-2005, 08:56 PM
Can you have my skills? Heh. I don't think I'm really all that skilled, to be honest. I have the best tools money can buy. That makes a big difference, believe it or not.

I noticed you use DeWalt products. That was my first tipoff you knew what you were doing.

I dunno - about 3 years ago. It was after I couldn't find any more IT related projects in Houston.

I was just showing a family friend these pics. They're really good. I didn't realize how good this project turned out until just a few minutes ago. Maybe I was too tired previously.

At any rate, I'm moving this to the main forum for a while - just in case somebody wants a kickass project done on their house. Heh.

How did you learn to do that stuff? That is artistic chit. Does your dad do that kind of thing? Any good stories on him?

Looks great Phil and Delt, good work. Makes me want to kick back myself and grill. You've motivated me now to go out by the pool rather than mow the lawn like I was going to. I thank you.

I don't know; that may qualify as "spamming" right?

Ah, crap....never mind; you own half the place now; carry on.... :p

Phil had the final check in his hand before he left town.

Course, he probably lost it 5 minutes later.

No, no...but he was robbed and "assaulted" in the back of his new pickup, at a reststop en route home....

My dad fixes toilets and replaces light fixtures for a living. He's what you might call a "handyman".

I'm unsure how I "learned" how to do this stuff. I spend copious amounts of time researching projects like this one. I subscribe to periodicals, I watch building related shows, and I buy picture books. The rest of it just comes naturally because I'm a very particular, high maintenance person. That doesn't translate well to my checkbook, but it helps me design and build pretty things.
