This is more of a yard work thread post, but today my neighbor finally did something about all the growth along our shared fence. It's weird to see in their yard now.

Is it time to start sun baking naked?

Now that I can see into his back yard, I see him hoarding stacks and stacks of concrete pavers. I want some of them.

Speaking of concrete pavers, I just finished this small patio. We used to store our camper there, but sold it and it was all dirt. I wanted to plant grass, but was overruled.

Sounds like you are conflicted about which thread to post in.

There’s a support group for that.

Digging was a pain in the ass. Nothing but rocks and roots, around here. I actually have to pull them up when the crushed stone and sand gets here. I just couldn't wait to see what it'd look like. And I have time at home, these days. Lots of time at home.

The seller of the house I’m purchasing is offering to pay up to $600 for a home warranty plan, so I’m getting one regardless, but I’m curious if anyone here has one and has actually used it? After this first year, it seems like I would do better to put the amount I’d be spending per month into savings, but who knows.


We renewed for one year.

First year we got our A/C worked on twice, and then replaced. Our toilet tank cranked. That got fixed. And I can't remember what was wrong with our bathtub, but we got that fixed.

The second year, we got a new water heater and garbage disposal, and I got a broken oven fixed.

I was gonna give them a 3rd year, but they wouldn't let me renew b/c I used my home warranty too much.

Am I a fool for thinking I can finish my own basement within the next 2-3 years? I currently possess none of the requisite skills. (I would hire out the electrical and plumbing.)

We moved into out house thinking we would remodel our basement by ourselves. It's Year 8 and we are taking estimates from professionals. :?

anybody got one of those Rainbird irrigation systems? Our house came with one, it's supposed to be working, but it's not. Have done the requisite troubleshooting (turning the solenoids on in the control box, trying to perform the Test All Valves function), but so far I'm not getting any water. I've been on hold for 15 minutes and am getting cranky.

If you're even moderately handy and have time, no problem. Youtube is the holy grail for DIY projects.

Is it on city water or a well?

City water. Spoke with customer support briefly, but had to get off the phone. He did ask me if I knew where the main water valve for our home was. I seem to recall the inspector pointing it out in our crawl space, but I need to confirm before calling them back.

I watched most of a 3 hour video on YT last night that made it seem pretty simple.

When we moved into our new place, one of the first things I did was hey a couple of bird feeders: an old school wooden bird house for finches and things like that, and a hummingbird feeder. The bird house takes both bird seed, plus there are racks on either side of the unit to house these suet-fruit-nut bricks that attract different types of birds; then you use nectar for the hummingbirds.

I figured I’d be looking at like $15/mo in bird food, but I was WAY off. Fuckers are voracious, so I’m looking at like $20/week!

I wonder if birds will eat Cheerios?
