    Picking up stuff from Tim (@Adventurous) I went by west end of JeffCo airport. Turns out they are just completing a Manufacturing hanger for Pilatus aircraft. Looks like they will be building their pc-24 for the North America market here.

    Know there are several ex military aviation folks around and this might be a great opportunity.

    Anyone remember name of guy getting out of military (Virginia- navy I think) who was talking about moving here in fall?

    Edit: actual job openings list

    Too small?

    It's in my "master" bathroom so I'm thinking something a little more substantial just for the aesthetics of it. Plus I need some storage for everyday items.

    Probably. The 23 5/8" at Ikea is way too small.

    Anyone have experience with these type of sunshades?

    https://www.amazon.com/Coolaroo-California-Sun-Shade-Rectangle/dp/B00WODYJR6

    Mainly wondering if it'll work well as a wind break. Going to be a long wait for county to approve any building plans so I'm going to make a temporary garage work area and wanted to use one of those for a wall and one for a roof to span the gap between the shed and the greenhouse.

    I have a feeling I'll have a toy to build on shortly...and need a "garage"

    Can't upload a pic since tw hates me (it's been "uploading" for 5 plus minutes), but we built a quick and easy open style vanity for one of the projects we were working on. Basically a bench style with top spot for sink to sit on and a lower shelf. We built it out of timbers and solid wood then wrapped it in barn wood.

    That way you can build it to whatever size and shape you need.

    Purchased, no. Designed (on a team) one of their neighborhoods, yes. I'd swear someone on here bought in Thompson River Ranch...

    I have that exact item at my house. We use it as a sun/rain shield over my crappy ass deck. I would think it would be fine as a wind break too. It is on its 2nd summer over the deck and has been holding up great. I am going to rebuild the deck and figure out a new use for it, so I guess you could say it is a pretty good product (since we have plans for it, haha). I threw some camp dry waterproofing spray on it when I first got it as well, but it wasn't letting water through when we got it.

    Sounds like it'll do the job you're looking for it to do. Sturdy anchors as well.

    If I give you my email address can you send it there?

    I like the idea of a bench style but I would have to incorporate either one drawer that's the full width or a couple that are smaller. My daughter and I share this bathroom and need some storage for every day stuff.

    I love the look of these vanities (cabinet only) at Restoration Hardware but they cost more than both of my vehicles combined:

    That sucks, sorry to hear. But it does sound like most builders I've heard of (and a couple I've dealt with as a consultant for people).

    Sinks are petrified wood... Interesting but not my style or income level.

    Counter was just temporary

    I do not, but one of the people I play pool with at Local 46 off of Tennyson St. does custom wood work. I do not know him besides him being a local at the bar. He is a really nice guy and from talking to him it sounds like he does some really nice custom work - cabinets etc. If you are interested I can ask him for you? His name is Jeff and he is a beast at pool.

    Congrats.

    Best advice i got when i did the same thing..

    "You'll never regret it. You'll be away seeing, learning, meeting new friends and having fun most other people only can only imagine. And if you end up back here...nothing will have changed, there's always 9-5 jobs and the norm that everyone is so scared to leave. Enjoy it"

    Needless to say, I can't wait until next year or so when im back in the spot to do months of unplanned travel.

    :cheers:
