    I don't know how other folks are coaping with the rain in the last 2 weeks - we are crapped out for much of this week - hope for frost to tighten up the ground.

    Hi Ian,
    Looks like you are having so much fun. Remember making mud pies as a kid?

    Looks like a mess. Hey, thats the picnic/BBQ/steel structure thing you had posted a line drawing of awhile ago, isn't it?

    Looks great so far!

    Looks like a fun project to work on!

    Yes - it's the same project - we had a crane come in to lift the roof so we could fasten it to the post/arm
    Cost a fortune for engineering (needed 60lbs per sq ft snow load)
    the township wouldnt allow a Canopy witout a zoning change - so we called it a gazebo and they accepted it. Still trying to figure out what roof surface to use - the client is anti wood - will probeble use a metal roof

    Wish that's all we had to deal with right now... about 8cm of snow and freezing ground here in Alberta... we have 4 projects that need sod to finish... thinking about trucking it in from BC.

    Your project looks like a nice size job...post pics when your done!

    That whole roof/canopy/gazebo thing is supported by just ONE column?:eek: No kidding on the engineering costs, I am sure that thing is an engineering nightmare.

    Now I'll have to search the archives for the other thread with the drawing.

    I love mud! We deal with it all year here because of those German rains all the time. It seems this place never really dries up. I have soem good mud pictures with our stuck equipment on my web site.

    I though thats what this thread was going to be about.

    That project looks like an awesome one. Please post pics as you go. I really like the "gazebo" ;)
