Default Patio cover - Started

My easy-up lasted one season and two storms. It's time for something a little more permanent. The first post in in place. digging that hole 24" was a job. roots and more roots! more picture as I progress.

Digging post holes by hand is no fun. Looking forward to your build!!

Wow. In another thread, I just asked how long an EZ Up usually lasts before needing replacement. One season and two storms isn't very long. Hardly seems worth it. Glad you've got an alternative. Good luck on the build. Following.

I had one last 3 days at a comp the weather just made a turn for the worst 30mph winds, flash flood storm, temp drop into the 40 kinda like what you cooked in the other day. I took it back and got another one mine was a QuikShade 12x12 think it was 60 bucks on sale at Academy Sports, it's made well it's just the weather that killed it.

Looking forward to shaded patio your building, yep digging post holes are a real pain that's the hardest part of the job.

If you have an equipment rental location near you, it's pretty cheap to rent a post hole digger...cuts through the dirt/rocks/roots like butter and worth every penny if you have more than a few to dig

Hats off to ya for doing those by hand. It's hard work and it seems like you'll never get to the end of it. I have a neighbor with a large tractor and an auger to go with it. It's a pleasure to watch it work. He helped me do the footings for my deck. I sent him a brisket, rack of ribs and a tri-tip in return. I still feel like I got the better end of the deal.

I know what it's like to dig holes in chitty soil brother. And up here where it freezes and all, those holes would have to be 4+ feet deep.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of your build. Love to see the ideas all you guys come up with.

I should probably get pics up of my new dedicated BBQ shed. Got the floor done last weekend, getting lumber for walls and roof tomorrow.

How many holes you got to go & how long till you leave? You're obviously doin it right!, so save it for later, if you should. Bless y'all who will work so hard!
