Adirondeck Chair

It's been awhile since my last post.  It's not that I don't have time; rather I lack content pertaining to my house to post. 
But now I have something. 

We bought some cheapo plastic adirondack chairs for the front porch.  Now while they work, I would prefer something I built.  I searched and found some plans on

The plans called for pressure treated lumber, but since it would live it's life on the front porch I used common pine and sealed/stained it with deck seal.  

Note: I used Behr Deck Stain for this.  Just bought a quart.  Having now experience with ReadySeal for my deck and Behr for the chair....hands down ReadySeal is the champ.  The Behr was harder to keep drips and excessive brush fulls from splotching or leaving marks.  So if you have to stain a deck, get ReadySeal.

The Great State of PA (even if their football fans are jackholes)

So I have spent the last 7 days on a Harley touring around Pennsylvania with a few other great friends. I have perused enough blogs to know that many of you are building in Pennsylvania.  My cousin lives just North-East of Pittsburgh.  I rode up Friday night and spent the night at her place.  We visited a local pub where I caught (and gave) a fair amount of shit (the curse of a Bengal's fan).
From there I toured up through Debois and found hwy666 (for the hell of it).  We rented a little house in Aaronsburg, making that our "home base".  We visited Gettysburg for a great burger at the "Blue and Grey" and spent some time at the battlefield.  We toured the Harley factory in York and then made another trip back to Gettysburg for another burger.
Dodging horse poop turned out to be a sport as we meandered up and down the roads.
It was a great trip even if we lacked the time and gas to get everywhere we wanted to go.  For you PA natives, you have a beautiful state....even given the fact the Shitsburg fans are Jackholes.  haha.
