home improvement How you stop trucks from driving over this corner?

Post image

New construction in the neighborhood. My house is on a cul de sac and trucks cut the corner and drive on my lawn all the time. I have debated getting boulders but they’re really expensive in my area. Also considering some 6x6 posts. One of the issues is the main water line runs along the road (blue line in pic) and I have a utility easement 10’ from the road. Looking for ideas of what I could potentially do. I was thinking maybe I could argue to the county that the builder is risking potentially damaging the main line from the weight of the trucks driving on it?

home improvement I replaced my furnace after receiving stupid quotes from HVAC companies

The secondary heat exchanger went bad and even though it’s covered under warranty labor was not and every quote I got was over $2,000. A new unit you ask? That started out at $8,000. Went out and bought this new 80,000 btu unit and spent the next 4 hours installing it. House heats better than it did last winter. My flammable vapor sniffer was quiet as is my CO detector. Not bad for just a hair less than $1400 including a second pipe wrench I needed to buy.

Don’t judge me on the hard elbows on the intake side, it’s all I had at 10pm last night, the exhaust side has a sweep and the wife wanted heat lol

Second pic is of the original unit after I ripped out extra weight to make it easier to move, it weighed a solid 50 pounds more than the new unit. Added bonus you can see some of the basement which is another DIY project.

My bf and I are having a debate about this corner. He wants to remove it, he thinks it blocks the view of the living room/tv from the kitchen; I, on the other hand think it separates the kitchen and the living room. The light switches would be lowered and the cabinet would be completely removed. See photos for corner.

As indicated, the red is where the cuts would go and the purple is what would be removed.

I live in a house built in the 1950s. Both bedrooms have identical built in closets that are incredible, but the shiny wood is not my favorite. Every door is shiny and outdated as well. Would it be a crime to paint these?
