My plans are to add another pad to stand on, I am thinking a cresnt (sp) moon shape infront of the pit. so it will be close to the corner of the "to be" deck which you can see the corner of in the left bottom of picture. Going to add a Herb garden behind pit, in the pic you can see a few potted plants, garden goes there. This is a Blast, BUT it is pulling me away from finishing the hardwood floors in the house. A man has to have priorities! Right?


yeah, and you're gettin em done! :lol:

I am looking fora place to buy 1/4 or 1/2 a cord of Pecan. It is a task for some reason. I really need to build a wood stand/holder that will keep the wood dry, yet let it breath. I have a few ideas, just need to make sure I am a safe depth for the wod to be stacked in it. I am thinking 12" deep. Most wood is cut between 6-8" in length right? Anyone in the Houston area have a place they buy Pecan? Or hickory?

Most wood is going to be cut around 16" to 20" or even to 24" length. This is usual length that they cut wood for a fireplace or for a firebox. Most wood racks are at least 24" deep :D

I had to share my updated pit area with you guys. I added more crushed grant and more slate rock to the slab area, and built a small deck to be able to walk around the pit. I will stain it in about a week or so. Since I need to let the treated wood dry alittle. The potted plants in the background are going to be the smaller herb and whatever garden. That is next weeks project. ( maybe)

thank you OSD. I am working on ideas for a prep table that will go to the left of the pit, and will run from the corner of the (to be) deck and run almost to the upright. In the picture you can see where I layed out a few boards to have an outline of the to be deck. Any ideas of what a prep table should have?

Myself I would want a small sink, having water handy is always good. :D A small sink with a faucet that you put an adapter on the feed lines so that a water hose can be hooked to it. Then you don't have to run water lines. :D A lower shelf for more room and a nice big top. :D

OSD, I was thinking about a sink as well, and for sure have a LARGE top. I did not think about an having a hook up to use the water hose thou, great Idea. As for draining I could tie it into the draining system I will be putting in soon. ( have alot going on)I was not sure what else I may need. I thought about having an inclosed shelf area below the top but I do not think I would store anything out there, unless I was using it that day.

FYI: Just make the hose is "rated" drinking water safe, not all are.

nascar I am with you on the water hose thing. DATS, I had no idea there were hoses that were "drinkable" and not. Like Nascar said, when we were kids they all were. heck, maybe thats what is wrong with me now ! hahahahaha Laura, I know you are right, all I have left is the masterbed room and the master closet. At this point I need her help, and not getting it, so the floors are not getting done. SO, in the garage I go to play and built other stuff.
