    Bob,
    Our well is "drilled". It is 300 ft deep. I am pleased that we have discovered that we can water the garden or grass all day as long as we limit the sprinklers to one at a time. Apparently our well can keep up with that flow rate. When using 3 sprinklers simultaneously, it only takes about 30 minutes or less to lose water pressure.

    We have installed all the top and bottom rails. We attached 1Xs on the sides of each post below the top rail to form a frame onto which we will attach removable screens. My wife pre-drilled the holes and I nailed the 1Xs to the posts. I notched the short post on the deck to form a place for the 2x4 top rail to rest. A 2x8 cap rail will sit on top of the top rail and post. My wife has bought stain and plans to stain the railing this week if weather permits. She has sanded all the posts and all the railing. We are close to finishing our railing and being able to use the deck. I could insert the steel rods and attach the cap rails at any time. However, if at all possible, my wife wants to stain the railing before the rods are in place to make the staining a little easier.

    Last night we bought this stainless steel gas grill off of Craigslist for $20. It's in fairly good shape. All the igniters work. One of the 3 burners is starting to rust out but is still useable. A set of 3 new burners costs $13 online. One of the casters does not work. For under $50 we will have a very nice grill when done.

    We got our previous grill for free when someone put it out on the street for trash pickup. We replaced the burner for $10 or so bucks and used that grill for 10 years. Our "new" grill is in much better condition than the old one. Unfortunately, the new grill is very heavy so we will need to get the casters working.

    I didn't get all the holes through the top rail drilled exactly perpendicular. So I had to redrill some holes as I put in rods.

    I guarantee you a steak or pork chop cooked on that grill will taste as good or better than the one cooked on my $600 Weber. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Weber, but a deal like yours is impossible to pass up. You can buy a lot of steaks for the difference in price.

    Yes, I'm pleased about the grill find. I didn't even have to shop Craigslist for long. Since we are getting ready to start being able to use the back porch, Saturday evening on a whim I searched for gas grills on CL. This one showed up. Monday morning my wife called the seller and made an appointment for Monday evening. $20 later we were loading it in the pickup truck.
