Wish I could do that. My HOA would go nuts, and the side of the house is too much like a swamp and too uneven. To be honest the neighbors would probably be fine with it tho ;-)

Got rid of the side yard, removed some old tree stumps, moved some rock, did a little excavation and brought in roughly 32 tons of rock.
I did a lot of prep work but hired a contractor to move dirt, remove stumps and bring in the rock and pack it. Now to add a 110 outlet on the side of the house.

Looks nice there Rook!

Do yourself a favor and at least make the AC receptacle a 30 amp.

This way, you can have a Man Cave and the wifey thinks you're out there working on something.

This past Sunday the wife and I got out and did a little TLC for the fiver. She got on the roof and put on the Camco Pro-Tec UV shield and protectant. I did my research and quite a few members here recommended it. Went on like a breeze. I dry lubed the slide mechanisms and put some 303 protectant on the slide gaskets.
