processhead How in the devil did you come across that beautiful piece of furniture?
That’s an interesting story. A guy had the blanket warmer and a big commercial refrigerator listed for sale on Craig’s List. He was experimenting with building meat smokers too and lost interest after scorching the vinyl siding off part of his house with one of his “projects”. I suspect his wife might have had something to do with his loss of interest.
I bought both the warmer and the refrigerator and hauled them home.
The blanket warmer became my sausage and cured meat smoker. The refrigerator needed some reassembly and repair work, but all the parts where there. It’s big enough to hold a 3 cut up deer so its pretty handy to have around and stays at our deer camp.
johnsbrewhouse Wishing the very best. That is just about the way I feel too, but Margaret says no more house building & the house itself is not too bad, good bones, pretty good layout for something I did not design (just kidding). I would not mind being a little further out or at least more secluded. I learned a long, long, long time ago to stay away from those HOAs. I will not live in one period, now. First experience with one was about 40 years ago & I was excited about it & wanted to do good things & help. That is not what everyone one else involved in them wants & most of it borders on ridiculousness, in my humble opinion. The we did one that had one, but they assured us, it exists, but no one pays & everybody just works together. It was very private & secluded. Then after several years of being there & volunteering time & tractor work, etc. to help keep things up & do the right thing, someone got the wise idea & found he could legally do so, to revamp it & collect back dues from folks from years of not paying. You can just imagine. Well, I learned my lesson twice, that’s it, No More! Please pardon my rant, but I am passionate about it.
