You might be able to extend the front facia of the veranda to the fence and put a post right on the fence line  that way the post will be completly out of the way

Only issue at the moment is funds. I was pondering leaving a gap behind the barbecue large enough to do that down the track, but then I wouldn't be able to dig in the footing. Another option is to make the area L shaped, along the fence, then cut inside the pole onto the verandah/alfresco area.
I want to lay the concrete pad next week, will I need blue metal in the mix or would brickies sand be ok? I haven't worked with cement in about 15 years and I've forgotten what I used to shovel into the mixer

First load of bricks picked up today. An old friend of mine has a bobcat and truck business so scored all these for free to save him landfill costs. Bit of work required cleaning them up, but can't complain about the price Smiley

Slight redesign to bring the BBQ into the verandah. Just need to get it approved by the wifey. Haven't laid any concrete yet. Have been a bit busier than expected these last few weeks.

That looks good.

It is always a busy time after moving into a new house.

So finished the basic design in a couple of different styles so Stacey could choose which one she preferred. Incorporated the dreaded post in there as well to see how it would look. She isn't keen on the L shape at all,  so looks like we're going straight down the fence. If all goes well the post will be in a perfect spot to lean on while cooking on the BBQ  Grin

If you wanted the BBQ wider could you cut the post off, put a flange on the bottom of it and bolt it to the top of the BBQ?

Post is no longer an issue. Just found this retic solenoid station about an inch under the dirt I was digging out to the left of the post. Back to the drawing board....

Is that for an automatic watering system??  If so you could move it.
