fun with left over PVC

i get the distinct impression that nobody really gives a flying squirrel about my 'this old house' posts. nonetheless, i don't really have anything at all going on in my life otherwise, so this is it. take it or leave it.

i had an abundance of PVC pipe left overs here. we had already bought a bunch of 3" pipe, and then decided to go with 5" for the outdoor doggie drain. also i already had a lot of odds and ends left overs from the original re-plumbing work. additionally, the previous owner had left a LOT of really large PVC pipe on the roof.

i made gangway sized swimming pool out of the 3" pipe. i only had to buy one 88 cent piece. it is really more of an outdoor bathtub, but it is a place to soak in the sun. we put hot and cold water into the gangway.

i put together all the odd pieces of big pipe that were left on the roof, and i have 2 pipes that cover the 20' span of the garage. i put the bigger 6" pipe onto 'legs' about 2 inches off the ground.

i will stretch the slightly smaller 4" pipe across the span about 2 feet above it, with an upright in the middle. the only thing i had to buy was the T for the upright. instant railing. right now the smaller piece is on the ground next to the bigger piece in the picture.

i will likely put a bunch of small 1/2" pipe in as uprights between the two big pipes. i have a BUNCH of those too. this stuff paints up really nice, i will probably paint the railing a bright color. I LOVE using up scrap supplies.

I think your Posts on "this old house" are quite good.
Not just because it keeps you busy from posting wired opinions you are not able to back up with argumentation.

Seems like you are a good craftsman. But what can I say as comments except from keep telling you it looks good?
Repeating that again and again becomes boring for both of us?

hahaha. thank you for your admiration of my work.

however, i stopped arguing with you because you seem incapable of a logical debate. you draw your conclusions from a dagnerous combination of tradition and what you learned in catholic sunday school (folklore) that has no basis in reality.

i know the bible inside out dude. my life is dedicated to christ. i run a church here.

you are not the brightest bulb in the box and i can't understand it for you.
