Looking forward to seeing some photos of the deck @rattle, I'm sure community members will be really keen to see what you have done. Both Deck projects and privacy screens are very popular topics on the site at the moment.

 

Thanks,

Stay safe @Dark! I'm sure the local community really appreciates your hard work both training new members and fighting the fires yourself.

Made solid progress on my pool area. So close to finishing it all off.

 

Install remaining boards, start  painting tonight, finish decking lid for underground enclosure, plant cacti feature.

Very exciting @ProjectPete

 

The kids must be busting to jump into that pool. It looks amazing.

Mate they've barely gotten out of it since there was about 300mm of water in it haha. They just couldn't wait. I've been for a quick dip too. Bought our robot vacuum today so will get him running tonight.

Re: What did you do over the weekend?

I got busy ticking things off my never-ending To Do list. I was planning on doing them this long(er) wknd however I've got a decking job booked and won't get a chance to work on my own house (on a wknd) again until at least 21/3.

 

  • Biggest item was finishing my decking lid with gas struts to cover my pool equipment in underground pit/enclosure. Now I just need to install some steps, hooks for scoop, hose, etc and and tidy the place up.

  • Not so excitingly I installed a new hose out the back...

  • ...and a latch to hold my side gate open rather than having to prop it open.

  • I got more of my feature fence in pool area up so I can get my soil in ready for cacti and succulents. I'll be painting it with Dulux render texture paint in Colorbond Surfmist colour.

  • And after several weeks of patience while I rusted/weathered my corten steel letterbox plaque, I gave my letterbox a fresh coat of paint and stuck it on.

  • Even managed to finish installing the lockable roller cover and rack system on my car - keep my tools safe and easier to load up flooring, timber, etc. Note - I've painted the bolts black since this photo.

Also mulched the garden and my wife started propagating some of our rare succulents.

So in short, I had a very productive wknd. Feels good!

Re: What did you do over the weekend?

Hope you all had a good weekend. 

 

I had a productive one - installing new weed matting, pavers and decorative stones down the (little-used) side of our house where all our utilities are. Hopefully we can now keep the weeds at bay.

I put down scorio for extra drainage in my backyard.  Looks good as well as it being for a practical purpose. Henriette
