Seems the dry weather is bringing all sorts of wildlife out of the woods. We’ve been here 9 yrs and never seen a gopher on the property. One showed up this morning munching on the dry grass/weeds.
This is a completely new decking system for me to install. So follow along in a few short videos of the different sections of railing, tips on cutting vinyl and other things learned along the way.
This morning we have the task of building a deck for one of our mom’s. There’s things to do before we can go over. A neighbour is coming over for a hair cut so while Gina is busy with that, I had to fill in my time.

I wanted a chute that would blow chips right into the quad’s dump cart. Its a little more than 1 cubic meter (yard) of material. We previously would fill the cart with the 3″ BearCat chipper but filling it just once and dumping would take a whole hour. When I recently purchased this 8″ wood chipper, the first objective was to fill the cart with a custom chute. It did so easily, 5 times an hour. Although, there is still some things to consider, like the huge amount of airflow from the chipping action causes blowback of chips. It makes a mess but that’s not a big concern for us.
