Alumitater ,

Excellent - that is just what I am thinking now - I will have to forgo the second portion that you use for your TV as I have still more trees to the right - but the cover for your AS is increasingly what I'm hoping is the best combination of aesthetic and cost effectiveness...

I'm still waiting on quite from my contractor so not sure.

Yeah - anticipation is such a joy....but also such a pain

I needed the time to have all ready

I see your grade their at the entrance - mine is perhaps a tad worse and I'll be forced to dig in a bit more which stinks but unavoidable in my case. At least I have a pretty straight shot as far as backing up.

Excellent setup you have there!! The look of having the double cover improves the appearance I think as well

" . . The look of having the double cover improves the appearance I think as well."

As also mentioned in another post, consider that the "second" roof is a covered front porch for the TT. And that the TT can be moved to storage elsewhere to use "the pavilion" for a large party of any type. Or, if long enough and tall enough, that relatives or friends could come for an extended visit with a larger RV. Or the first structure rebuilt after a tornado to cover re-building supplies and contractor work area. Etc.

A landscape architect can tie it all together. I've had solid concrete driveways cut up into squares so that once the cars are in the garage the back patio and driveway are more complementary of each other. Landscaping is more than just a few plants and some Home Depot yard lights. Folks who work as their own designer -- interior, lighting, landscaping -- usually prove the worth of that expertise to the rest of us. Keep it in mind for some point along the way.

Also great news is that drop was not 3 feet - original measurements crudely done NOT with laser - now bro said it will be much less - more like 1.5 feet

You need some high explosives to get that root out of there. Remember there is no such thing as too much. All kidding aside. You can get a cheap laser level at Harbor Freight that works pretty well for leveling foundations etc. The laser is pretty weak but if you just turn the head by hand instead of letting it spin there is enough light.

@ Alumitater, Just WOW. I do like that a lot.

Too bad we're not allowed to do that here in HSV. P.O.A. says NO RV's in the yard!

My brother has some bulky looking laser setup that he has on a tripod etc...

The roots of the remnant tree were freaking difficult

Yup as long as we have gravity.

It is an "open" system. Water seeks its level inside hose so water at each end is same. Simple.

This works pretty well. I have used it to level foundations with goot results. I layed out a new laundry room with one like this a few years back.
