So who has major camp renovations planned this year.

So who has major plans for this year? I'd like to do a pavilion and a shooting platform to practice some archery shooting from.

I do all of my own work, from construction to plumbing and electric. Almost Amish quality and a lot cheaper.

If I had to do it again, this is exactly what I would do.

Nothing this year. This past year had a metal roof put on camp which will be it for a while.

Sounds like a fun project Bucksnort!!

Only thing we are looking hard at is an electric upgrade. I have 200 amp service lines to the camp, but the builder only put in a 100 amp box. Looking to upgrade the box, add some small electric baseboard heaters to keep the camp at 50 in-between spring and fall trips, but would shut it down when we winterize in late December. I don't consider the steps I need to do off the side deck a major project, it just goes into those weekend jobs list I have.

You camp owners have my respect and admiration and to a large extent I am jealous too. I have to get my shed re-shingled this summer and am completely overwhelmed by it.

We had to put in a grinder pump for sewage last year, and rerun some lines under camp. We have a work detail in August to work on little things, as we do every year. We cut next years wood in June and stack it so that's out of the way.
Next year might be a roof, although I probably have a few more years if I want.
I'm pretty blessed that the guys that hunt out my camp pitch in and do a bunch of stuff.

Nothing huge for us either, just general upkeep. Deck needs stained, some dead trees near camp need taken down before they decide to break into camp, crawl under to make sure all pillars are still sound, and upgrade the meat pole.

You could use tin instead. That way you can let the shingles on and not have to dispose of them.
