Hey guys, want to share my project with you guys. About 10 months ago we bought a new house. First project was back porch.
Before, Pretty bare canvas:

Working on landscaping now that duck season is over...

    Thanks guys, we love it. Kids will eat breakfast & watch cartoons in the mornings out there. Believe it or not, only time I have ever lit the gasser is after I plumbed it. Use the burner a ton, gumbo's & wok cooks. Figured the gasser will be for burgers & dogs for parties.
    Wilt, cement countertops. Me & some buddies poured them. Had one guy who knew what he was doing, we all just had sore backs & hangovers for a couple days.
    MCN, that obvious???? Haha!!!

    Lol.. even if he said no.. Do you really anticipate him coming to your house anytime soon? there is no way of him even knowing if you copied parts.
