The Ricky W thing got me thinking... when we drafting?

I will be away the whole first week of August for work (1st-8th), but I have no problem if someone "auto-picks" for me.  I can send my list/ranking to Scott or someone to draft for me if we need to do it during that week...

I wouldn't keep that downspout where it is, it might cause some problems later on down the line...
Yeah, that is a work in progress.  Just a temporary fix until we can re-work it.  The drain pipe will wrap around and drain alongside the deck into the Rock landscape that will surround it.  :)

Gotta love those hangers for the boards, some brilliant mind thought those up.  Are you 12" or 16" spacing?
Joist Hangers are great time saver!  We went with 16" On-Center because that is what the city inspector recommended with the deck at 14'x14'.  If we had gone out to 16', they would have had to be 12" joists.

Can't tell, but I presume you poured the concrete for the posts?
Yeah, we dug out our 42" holes with the help of a Toro Dingo Power Auger (like a little tank with a drill), then filled them up with nearly 400lb. of concrete per hole (5 - 80lb bags).  :o  Took a bit of work to level the posts since the backyard is hilly, but we got it straight in the end.

Also surprised to see how low to the ground the house is.  Up here, you see very, very few houses that you can just step out of.  Most have steps, 3-4 and the elevation of the floor is about 3-3.5 feet off the ground, presumably to allow for windows in the basement.  Do you guys have a basement?

The house is a split-level and on a hill, so, the basement (lower level) is a walk-out as Scott said.  It is great because the "basement" is no where near the dark and dingy kind you get with a in-ground basement with tiny windows at the top of the walls.

The front of the house has a few steps up to get to the front door, but the back is a walkout.  Hard to describe if you haven't really seen it before I guess.   :-\  Maybe I'll post a few pictures of the exterior of the house with the next update!

1.  Hem Dazon (Arcona) -

If you've never taken the time to look through the Cantina Roll-Call feature at the Official Site, you really should.  It has some GREAT old pics of those classic Cantina Dudes!  It's probably one of my favorite all-time articles at the Official Site!

I will buy this 3PO of course, but I too was hoping for at least knee articulation so he could sit in an Endor Throne or sit in the Falcon!

As it stands, I'll just stick him next to OTC Lobot and the rest of the gang at Cloud City.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Coruscant Wave
« on: July 27, 2004, 11:33 AM »
The more I look at the pictures, the more I like this wave.  

Pablo - interesting looking Jedi = diverity for my Geonosis Arena scene.  Looks to have some good articulation in there too.

Yarua - I too hope for the removable bandolier!

Sly - creppy and a little boring, but a very good likeness.  Makes me want a "Dar Wac (Rodian Aide)" to go with her and Mas Amedda standing around the Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.

Well,

It's been about a month so I thought I'd post a little update.  We've worked about 5 weekends on the deck so far and things are coming along nicely.  

Here's a shot of the largest (14x14) portion of the deck:



Due to our schedules, we really only get to put in about 10-12 hours of work each weekend, and maybe 4-6 hours of work during the week, so we are a little behind the original schedule we had planned.  I'd guess we are about 33% done with the back deck and about 25% done with the side deck (it's a wrap-around).

Summer is so hectic (in MN you have to enjoy the weather while you have it), but things are calming down now so we should be able to really hit it hard in August!

Well...

With all the hoopla from SDCC, I think I've decided that I want to go to C3 and meet up with all you fine folks.

I'm gonna start working on the Mrs. and see what I can swing... don't know if it will be both of us or just me (she tagged along when I went to Denver for C1... actually it was our first "vacation" as a couple).

We'll see how it goes I guess...

Thanks to the awesome  ::) tech at the SWShop.com site, sometimes the Sandy will show up Out of Stock until the enter payment phase of the order, when he suddenly shows up.

This is similar to when some people were ordering the Kermit despite the site claiming it was out of stock.

Great Job StarWarsShop.com!

Silver Sandtrooper is on-line now for Hyperspace Members.

Can't wait to see how this one turns out regarding Figure Shipments (crushed or not crushed?).

How they handle this will determine if I bother with the Holo-Emperor or not...  :-\
