I definitely want to go native if possible. The Avocado seems to big. The trees will provide more a of a screen along the fence, so something sort of narrow will work best

oak gives the best shade. Eucalyptus aren't bad either. what's your landscape plan, sienna? The plan is concrete pad where the seating area goes, an in-ground fire pit, some gravel in a certain area and these trees on part of the perimeter where the sun just gets too blazing. I am also going to bui...

Landscaping question - trees for shading purposes

My living room gets blazin hot in the afternoon when the sun gets low. I am looking for some nice trees that will not grow too huge to act as shading (and add a nice touch to the landscape). The trees must extend, or grow to be, a few feet above a six foot fence. I am not looking for bamboo or palm ...

Removing 50+ year old paint from fireplace

Hello, we have been trying for months to remove the paint from our brick fireplace. The brick had three layers of paint and we are down to the first layer. This paint is a turquoise paint and probably oil based. This layer just will not come off! :x We have tried the JASCO and the Franmar paint remo...

I thought I was pretty clear about the issue and the pictures provided are clearly indicative of the door sagging to the left. Nevertheless, thanks for the suggestions, looks like I will start with the shimming; however, I have a hunch that such a thin cardboard shim might not sufficiently contribut...

Maybe and this is one of those situations where a picture of the hinge mounting from outside would be really helpful. Going with what you have said, the hinges are at 90 degrees and not folded flat against other when the door is closed. So only one part of the hinge is inside the door frame, in the...

keep in mind, this is not a tradtional door. This door hangs on the outside of the post & beam frame Good point, Joe, although I assume that the goal of even spacing all around is still valid. Does this mean the hinges are not mounted inside the door frame, but outside, so they are flat or at 9...

Need your help! Hung a door but's it's crooked

Hello everyone! I hung a door in my kitchen. Everything seemed fine until afterwards when the door was closed and I took a step back. The vertical sides of the doors are level, but the horizontal surfaces seem to sag towards the side where it opens. The hinges are new and strong and they are flush w...

Thanks for the feedback. We are using the 1" glass mosaic on one wall of the shower, but only 1 wall due to their price. My husband REALLY wanted these 4.5" x 13". Some battles just aren't worth fighting! One of our inspirations for the staggered was this wall: http://i26.photobucket...

I was thinking sometime in mid to late June. Would people prefer a more formal Saturday evening party or a more casual Sunday afternoon BBQ-type setting? Also P&K owners are definitely welcome (along with Eichler dwellers, and anyone else interested in MCM). Stephen http://cliffmay.blogspot.com...
