Pickleball, Speed Tennis, Volleyball, Basketball, Badmitten and skates are all doable. Check out Sport Court® - Backyard Game Courts and Indoor Sports Flooring.

And great build and pizzas as well!

Decades ago my father and two friends started pickleball. It still cracks me up when I see it around and about. Great game.

I need a firestick!

That's a riot. It would be great to have a founding father stop by next time you are in San Diego. Even if you didn't have a awesome WFO, you would still need a firestick......lots of fun and completely lit is 3mins or less. Love you stone work, left a question for you on your thread.

Built a door last weekend.
made a tray out of sheet metal.
Made a door out of tung and groove pine wainscot.
filled the tray with vermiculite and connected the two with a 2.5 inch wide alum band.
After cooking pizzas on Sunday still had 450 dome and 400 floor deg F on Monday morning.

First pizzas with 00 Pizza flour. Wow, what a difference. Made handling and sliding a breeze. also first time using my live yeast from www.Sourdo.com

Repaired the arch brick this weekend, ran some electricity and started preping for the scratch coat.

Bought some Granite Pool Cowling and cut it to size for a Hearth. Also bought a 4ft piece of 3inch flat steel and used it to hold ash back while cooking. just bend it a few times so it stands up. Saw some Italian chefs using one on the travel channel. works great
