  • Mike, we just purchased our 1st home with a pool, and want to build a similar type of grill area using steel studs as it will sit on our concrete apron. was working with metal studs difficult? I'm fairly handy with tools and have significant past experience with wood framing but have never worked with metal studs. Appreciate any feedback.

  • Enjoyed viewing your gardens- I'm working on a fairy garden. Southeast Georgia will definitely need some different plantings.
