So we've got plans to build a brick and tile outdoor cooking area. Figured if I started a blog, it might get me a little more proactive while building it. Haven't really got any plans set in stone, but currently I'm hoping to have a camp oven section, a gas barbecue and then some space at the end for a smoker.
Have taken a photo of what I'm starting with, not sure how to work that verandah post just yet, as my wife wants it along the fence where the garden is. Design phase hasn't started yet, but I'm open to ideas!

Get rid of the palms first and have a blank canvas. Same as I have to do when we move in to the new place so will be watching with interest. Good luck and happy planing cheers Robert

Yeah tomorrow morning I hope to get the plants out. Drawing up a bit of a design on the computer. I can chop it and change it as much as I like before building

That's Sketchup 2014 I think. I've used it for a couple of projects.

Exciting times ahead mate.

When I started on mine I had no idea other than the general layout as to how it would turn out.

Maggie originally wanted an old wood stove in ours but that didn’t eventuate. 

It just kinda grew on me.

I am now contemplating trying and get a metal tray off the side of the deck to put the new Ozpig on.  Still not sure that is feasible.

That's the best thing about that program, being able to edit and play around before even laying the concrete pad. Gives me a chance to get that verandah post into a position where it won't be blocking anything. I've never laid a brick in my life so the building part could be interesting

So I've ripped out the palms, and started digging down a bit....and found a pipe. Not sure where it goes as I flew back up to work today so haven't had a chance to follow it. It runs just under the surface round the back of my shed into the chook yard. Hopefully it's a functioning water pipe so I can put a tap on the end of the BBQ, or even put in a sink
