    This is a motivating thread, some really nice looking projects by members. Having put my hand to a number of the arts/crafts (RC aircraft, masonry, reno, etc...) featured here I can appreciated the time and effort that goes into these things.

    In the summer of 2011 my family started a project that didn't actually get finished till this last summer, and that was building a courtyard at the back of our house. We had a sort of ugly backyard and I wanted to enclose the area for privacy and add a little life and greenery by having a pond area.
    Anyway, here's a couple pictures of the results, and a video showing the building process and some of the steps involved up till the fall of 2011.

    Edit: thought I might as well add a video showing the pond in it's finished stage.

    Thanks guys. Yes it is a little more palatable sitting out in our backyard now. ;)
    We live in an area with great mountain views and those views are still very visible, but the courtyard walls block out everything else, so it has been a win\win situation, and it was a great family project.

    I agree. The name change is tricky.

    Sorry, not trying to freak anybody out, but since the new forum format the old name Carbon_Liberato
    r, didn't fit properly in the space provided below the avatar (the r always got pushed down one line and it read like it does above). For some reason this really bugged me and I decided to try and fix it, but couldn't without changing the name, so one thing led to another and I went with a complete make over. LOL
    I figured the lumberjack image would be more appropriate since I live in British Columbia and always wanted to be a lumberjack anyway. You know how the song goes..... ;)

    I wanted to be... a lumberjack!

    Leaping from tree to tree, as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia. The Giant Redwood. The Larch. The Fir! The mighty Scots Pine!
    I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay.
    I sleep all night and I work all day.

    MOUNTIES:
    He's a lumberjack, and he's okay.
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.

    BARBER:
    I cut down trees. I eat my lunch.
    I go to the lavatory.
    On Wednesdays I go shoppin'
    And have buttered scones for tea.

    BARBER:
    I cut down trees. I skip and jump.
    I like to press wild flowers.
    I put on women's clothing
    And hang around in bars.

    BARBER:
    I cut down trees. I wear high heels,
    Suspendies, and a bra.
    I wish I'd been a girlie,
    Just like my dear Papa.

    MOUNTIES:
    He cuts down trees. He wears high heels,

    [talking]
    What's this? Wants to be a girlie?! Oh, My!
    And I thought you were so rugged! Poofter!...
