Living in the city you’re bound to get rats…especially if you like to feed birds. Recently I’ve noticed a rat hanging around and knew I had to do something about it.
Noooo, not Ratatouille!
Now, I actually really, really like rats as an animal. They are extremely intelligent and are actually really good pets for people who can’t have dogs – whether or allergy reasons or space reasons. They have a lot of personality and recognize their owners and will learn their owner’s mannerisms and schedules. They are basically like little dogs with long ass creepy tails.
I’ve had this panel I got at a second hand store for a decade now. I really love it and have been thinking of ways to turn it into “something”. One thought I had was a canning jar herb garden but I don’t have enough sun exposure in my house for an herb garden.
I wanted 2 column gas fire pits for my back patio but who knew that column gas fire pits were so expensive?! I didn’t know that I would be looking at fire pits in the $300-400 range for the size that I wanted.
My uncle got me a subscription to Family Handyman for Christmas and their May 2019 Magazine had plans for a nice block fire pit that you could make “in 1 day!” This fire pit was more square than I wanted and used a 20# propane tank, which was much bigger than I wanted. I want a fire pit that is easily moveable since my patio is so small I would like to tuck these fire pits out of the way when I’m not using them.
I thought if Family Handyman can make this fire pit then HOW HARD CAN IT BE?! I’M GOING TO MAKE MY OWN!
Thanks for the subscription, Uncle, It’s not like I didn’t have enough projects already!
