    Got my wood and hopefully start tomorrow [​IMG]

    2X4 and 2X6 particleboard and felt and shingles.

    This was the easy part , now the work begins.

    My own "Man - Cave" , how cool is that , more than you know from my point of view [​IMG]

    Stay tuned . The Stan show is in production [​IMG].

    Have a good day my friends. If you have an idea , I have a little of my budget left. Nothing outrageous , but a necessity .

    Later . . .

    Can't wait to see the progress!!!

    Last year we improved the front yard. Took this summer off. Next year it's the back yard. Trellis, patios, and hopefully my outdoor kitchen!!!!

    Well, got some done before us old boys gave it up for the day[​IMG]  [​IMG]

    That figures , got the shots backwards , I don't care right now though , ya'll figure them out   . . .  Our young friend digging ,He didn't like that but better him than me.

    He took a bbreak aftar each 3 diggers full [​IMG].

      Here's "Pop" , he is a really cool 'Old Man' , I love him to death.[​IMG]

      The basic frame and two rafters to keep the frame up..........

      The boy on another break... and my Nephew(the Sheriff Dispatcher)...

    Some of the roof on to stiffen it ...

    and "Pop" ...

    We work about 6hrs. today and gave up , Cliff went home a long time ago [​IMG]  , got tired.

    I'll be back out there tomorrow ( I think , if the back holds up tonight) Whew [​IMG]  Most heavy work I've done in years [​IMG]. But I think I'm satisfied with our work [​IMG].

    Coming along well , I think , if you see anything I need , hop in and voice your opinion , I'm flexible.

    Have fun and . . .

    Stan's Man cave!!

    Next we'll see plumbing run, then electricity, concrete floor, then the toilet, next the reefer hook up, enclose it, run a smoke exhaust, lol........

    LOL... then he'll have to move a cot out there cause Trish will get tired of him spending all his time out there!

    Looking great Stand, now you'll loss that weather excuse for not smoking.

    Looks looks like a great start.
  12. Nice job so far. 


  13. Every grown man should have a man cave. As children we built tree houses and huts, it's only natural as we get older (and have a few extra $$ in our pockets) our projects get a little bigger. Lookin Good Stan!!! Thumbs Up
  14. Hey Stan, looking good,  you need to get someone with a plasma cutter to make you something like this to hang in your new man cave

    Looks good Stan. How's the Mosquito's in your area? Some Screened in walls might be a nice touch if the Mosquito's are a problem. I think a close by Refer would be a good idea as well...JJ

    Yeah , Roofing isn't as easy  any more [​IMG]  Most done , but rain and manpower halted progress . Ideas on a Exhaust welcome . I'm thinking a 4"  (square ?) stove pipe  [​IMG]  Or would a 90* exhust keep rain out [​IMG]

    What say , Kevin , or anyone  [​IMG]

    Going through 3/8" Ply and Shingles.

    Thanks . . .
  19. I have something similar planned for my backyard.  Simple lean-to roof using pressure-treated lumber.  I had thought about how to exhaust smoke from under the roof.  How about something like this?

    It's kit for venting a bathroom fan thru the roof.  Simple and under $30 @ HomeDepot.  It's passive (no fan).  If you want a powered vent, how about one of these?

    Solar power!  No wiring required.

    IIRC code requires vents to be at least 2 feet down from the roof peak.  Or maybe that's just best practice...

    Campsmoke , I was think a 'fart fan' would work ... [​IMG]  .The stack will be about 6" from the roof ; enough to keep to heat from scortching anything .

    But I.m wondering if that would help the drafting , or is more exhaust pipe needed [​IMG]  lenghthing my pipe above the roof [​IMG]  My objective is to reduce smoke in the 'Bana' and still have good draft [​IMG]  .

    Thanks . . .
