Outdoor Work

Posted on

So we got started on a long over due project today.  The outdoor kitchen.

The wood has been sitting for a while now and the weather has been cooperating with us while Silver is feeling mobile enough to do some building.

We have been waiting to get this built as we really want to be cooking outside again, and in the summer it’s better to bake outside in the heat than in the house.  After a long winter I can’t stand the being cooped up feel of having too cook inside the house.

Our intern was helping out with this today, we have discovered she is very good at eyeballing distance.  See the corner post in the fore ground?  It is made with 3 2X4’s glued and nailed together.  Silver has a habit of making buildings that’ll live a few hundred years..  Or that you could prob store an elephant in.

We should get the roof finished on it tomorrow which is good because we have storms coming in Tuesday.  The floor’ll be put in later and some half walls on the side.  We’re going to use that water tank to catch water off the roof for my herb garden.  We’re hoping the first cooking item placed in (err just outside) will be the cinder block cook stove Silver made that first year we were here.  It was fun to cook on it especially in the early mornings when the sun is just beginning to rise.

Looks like we should have across the street neighbors soon, we had 2 groups stop by today to check out the property there.  I hope someone decides soon.

Hope your Sunday went well.

Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…

    Wonderful, one of our dreams is to have an outdoor kitchen.

    • Been wanting one for years too, that first 6 months we were here we cooked only outside and I loved it (when it wasn’t raining).
