    @jaysee John Mate, just noticed these in an Aldi catalogue on sale next Saturday possibly of interest for your bench as bum warmers....essential grocery shopping within 5kms too of course :-)

    Yeah maybe bum area is 1.9m, they're alittle short, but I'll see how the Mrs wants to dress them up, which I know she will.

    youll need some old cast iron sparrow beak kettle for that out side brazier.
    just a thought, love that seat.
    Cheers John.

    That's a good point. I'll grab some cut to size scraps.

    Finished one side, only allowed 200mm spaces but went with 100mm spaces so ran outta hardware. It's coming along though, hopefully 300m of wire will be enough!

    Looking good gents, bloody good thread this one. Bidja they are some serious water tanks, hopefully all sorted now. Reminds me fixed (well atemted) to a gal tank but still leaks damit so will have to revisit that one should be fully dry now, bugger of a job. .

    Did some extreme rock work starting a wall with mud stone off the property. . Started at the end with a big F off bullants nest and they were pretty pissed once I ripped open their nest poor buggers. . . Not easy trying to lay rocks crawling with the buggers only got one nip bloody miracle. .

    Weekend projects

    That will finish Spectacular Rossco Mate!
    Don’t forget there’s a few nearby m3 piled up over here awaiting, some very decent locally coloured streaks matching too

    EDIT: Do be weary of too many Big Bully bites, our old Patriarch became highly Anaphylactic after two years of building a local ‘Muddy Home’ :-)

    Pretty soft but do love the beautiful colors of our local mud stone especially when you get a bit of lichen in there, easy to chip away too. She'll come up pretty good I reckon, and probably will need more rock, will need fair bit I reckon. .

    Neat looking retaining wall coming together there @Rossco, some serious lifting and must be glad for the pincher helpers haha.

    The tanks were so humid to work inside of and still dealing with the heat rash (such a long way around the inside walls). Looking fwd to seeing result(few weeks away/cure time).

    Did fill the 2 on the hill prior, but of course emptied for repair, they give good pressure/flow for fire hose at house (20m head/nozzle water throw good 15m). 50% improvement over the turkey nest dam that was up there.
