Good morning friend :)
Well... how's the new year treating you so far? For me, I've been able to keep up with what I have been telling myself to do. One thing that really has been helping me push through the old habits is the comment "X doesn't have a vote", tired, lazy, being uncomfortable, warm and cozy,.. so on and so forth. That's been a big adjustment, and so far it's worked. :)
I'm happy to report that my wonderful water feature project is completed.
She's a tall one too! 104"... It's on the truck headed for Montana. Back in May of 2017 a General Contractor & Architect team reached out to me with a water feature question / problem. Over the course of months we designed what they needed. It was really fun being involved with a construction project again... seriously felt strange... probably like the way a retired doctor must feel like after years of helping people in a hospital setting then only to be at the park and someone get injured and be there to help that person AND communicate with the arriving paramedics... maybe no that extreme, but was fun none the less. haha!
Now that she's all done! Now I need to completely redo my website.. it's been down for months - and! for the past years, this is where I've gotten all my work. Additionally, this fountain has been the main road block in managing my time. Now with her all completed, I can be further diligent in how I utilize it.
To the fun stuff!.. the videos!! click on the links, not the pic's
This one is a classic run down.. no descriptions other than showing the details
If you've got some time.. Here's a 13min rundown of how to install the water feature. I'm really stepping outside my comfort zone talking to myself... but after I get going, I feel pretty comfortable. This was so much easier than drawing out these details.
And lastly, here's a unique perspective on how to unpack the fountain after it arrives... again, more discomfort. Overall, the fountain took about 15-18hrs to build.. maybe less. However, it took almost a solid 8-10hrs to pack. This will give you a good idea on what it takes to pack it all up.
I've got a couple other things I'm hoping to build in the near future... till then though, I'm going to focus on taking care of some design/graphic art projects I've been planning for a while.
In other news! Chas went on her first hike ever!! .. right... almost as lame as me never being to a rock concert... yeah... truly! Haven't been to one. At any rate.. Chas took a hike on the White Tank Mountains the other day and had a picture to contribute to today's weekly pic. :) Thanks Chas! :)
I want to say thank you for taking the time to check out my videos. I'm truly grateful I have this kind of platform to share this part of me with you. I know it may sound silly... however, being able to build these water features has allowed me to serve our real estate clients so much more uniquely. At least in the eyes of constructability and what's possible....
again, I'm grateful for your time.
As always, I'm happy to hear your thoughts and questions.
If there is anything Chas and I can do for you or someone you know.... we're happy to help them along. This is a safe place to ask questions.
Till next Friday friend, have a grateful day.
