Raising the line entirely doesn't appeal to me in the least. That's the point of indoor layouts on benchwork. Having the steam up area beside the patio elevated and the remainder of track at ground level was the intent.

When I bought this house just shy of four years ago the backyard was a barren, desolate place. Aside from the trees, it was bleak and uninviting. Typical of what most USians want as their lives are spent indoors in front of televisions becoming fat and lazy. The previous owner pretty much smoked himself to near death and financial ruin with that approach. That's not for me.

In less than four years the backyard has gone from this...



to this...



The front yard from this...



to this...



During the past four years I was lucky if I was home a total of 80 days per year because of my job. During those four years I've vastly improved the yard, excavated tons and tons of buried concrete, reshingled the roof of my home by myself, remodeled the bathroom and accomplished a million other things. My wife calls me a machine.

A little bit of bending down isn't about to slow me down, even as I age. They say that only the good die young. Considering that, my current age of 50 is my infancy as I'll never die. :P
