You can even sell the wet saw when you are done. You'll be way ahead in the long run.
Saws have a fence so you get consistent repeat cuts. They make cleaner cuts too.

You have borers. They like ornamentals. Go to a nursery and ask for a liquid drench. Follow instructions regarding size of tree.

I did what Marq1 suggests. Get it far away as possible. I have considered popups at the condo, but they look like a maintenance headache.

Don't sell yourself short. I built my first and only garage myself. It is a 3-car with a hip roof. The only part I had problems with was the slab work I hired out. Code required that the old sewer...

Go with LED instead of incandescent. You'll be able to have more on the line without overloading it. I switched my old outdoor lighting to LED bulbs. Same old xfmr. Same fixtures.

Unfortunately you need wires to make them hum. I am a proponent of separate devices like you have. If one goes out, needs upgrading etc, you don't lose the whole setup. Use some zip ties or something...

Hmmm. The neighbors will really like that. There may be an ordinance limiting the time it can sit like that. We have them here.

+1 on ground cover indigenous to your area. You should be able to water it every so often. Two of my neighbors used stone and artificial bark and they look like crap if you ask me. Doesn't harmonize...

That looks primitive and probably not to code if you plan to add a shower, sink and possibly a toilet. I cut out my concrete floor, laid out the new runs and tapped into the existing sewer line below...

1/2" CCA plywood 16"OC will be fine. It's structurally stronger than OSB too. When I built my 3-car garage I used 1/2" plywood on all the walls and roof for strength.

Another vote for a PEX upgrade. You'll never feel right fixing the ceiling and wondering when the next leak will occur.

Is it corrosion or just calcium and mineral buildup from slow leakage? Those solder joints might get worse some day, or the appliance may fail (end of life) and need to be replaced before they do.

I agree with it's a yew and it's too close to the house for that particular type. We like yews. They stay green all year and the right type in the right space improves the landscape

I agree. While you have it open, get rid of as much galv steel as you can. Then it should be eazy peezy to locate the opening where you need it.
You want the project to be a legacy, not a liability.
