I like the ones that need extension cords or adapters with two male ends for their Xmas lights

Naah. Workbench is perpendicular to that side of house.... headed towards the truck. It looks like one sawhorse even straddles the silt fence.

Re: DIY Interesting Combined Purchases


Some of those photos are unbelievable.

Ive seen some strange combinations. What scares me is when your leaving and seeing a homeowner load their vehicle. One guy was putting a steel cart full of 20x20 tile in the trunk of his car. Ive seen people put a water heater in their trunk, 16' trim hanging on the side of the car. My favorite laugh is when you see people put plywood on the roof, and the driver and passenger have their hands out the window holding it while driving.

Kind of can guess where the car with the ladder thru the window & passing the tow truck is headed!

Re: DIY Interesting Combined Purchases


PVC + Romex + 2x8's in the cart is a pretty good indicator that something's going to get hacked together.
