You'll want to check and clean that drain grate periodically otherwise, it doesn't look like you should have nay problems with that setup. Great progress so far. I'm sort of stalled on my current project. Not to mention side projects that have taken priority.

talked the wife out of the tall faucet and compromised for this Frankie, same style but way shorter and a much better fit IMO. And supposedly this one is made for outdoor use. Made some headway on the stone as well as had the granite guys come back and bullnose some more edges and cut out the bbq hole.








still have a few gaps to fill but im saving the small pieces for the end

thanks- turns out the access doors and trash can frame fit fairly nicely and i don't think i need to grind the stone to make it look good. I tried to use some the the flatter stone around those edges and it look like its going to work.


So whats your guys input on how to fasten these doors to the bbq. The pre drilled holes in the frame would anchor into the cultured stone and im scared im going to crack the stone using a hammer drill on it. Both doors can easily be removed from the frames so I was thinking some construction adhesive. What do you guys say?

well the bbq really had no frame and was really weak- So I made one which also helped get the hieght I neededand gave enough room to build some adjusters to help level it.





i welded that directly to the bottom of the Q and slid it in place. All thats left is build some flashing to go between the granite and Q and make a removable plate covered in stone that will cover the casters and lower part on the Q.

haha- my family actually talked to him the next day at our house warming party but I havent. I did finally talk to the older couple on the other side after 3 months of waving and getting nothing back. They arent around much since its a vacation home for them but Ive never lived anywhere where the neihbors are so cold.

This last weekend we were on the water installing a stereo in a buddies boat and we could hear some people two doors down gossiping about us. Its a community dock and my buddy was in the guest slip so I dont think they knew it was me down there. Anyway I learned a lot- First when you are on the water you can hear people from far away like they are standing right next to you. And two, these jealous pricks were speculating what my wife and I do for a living, everything from dealing drugs to spoiled trust fund baby. I found out who called the home owners about my cadillac being "stored" in the driveway even though its my daily driver and they were just hating about the work we are doing and saying "i bet they dont have permits"

anyway after all that i dont care to meet any of these d bags. I know i have to permit my deck but does anyone know if i need to permit the retaining wall or a bbq? I bet the gas and electrical needed permits but i just want to know what im up against in case they turn me in.

on a positive note I got most of the dirt dug out with the help of our fine southern freinds. I also found a great deal I wanted to pass on. Home depot and american express sent me a mail ad for a buisness credit card. If you spend $2000 by november 15th they give you a $750 gift card to home depot.

i hired some help to dig out the wall, pour the concrete and stack the cinder block. We have a birthday party BBQ on the 30th and I guess im too slow for the wife. I wish i would have known about gluing the blocks together for the bbq- Sure is a whole lot easier!























im cutting the planter box with the palm trees down a half a block. Decided its going to be too tall with the cap.



Next decision. A buddy traded me some car parts for this 5x18x25 glulam beam. Its great but Im worried its too big for my deck. I already special ordered the 2x10x14 joists and if i stack some 2 x10's on top of a 18 inch tall glulam then the bottom of the glulam will be 6 feet 5 inches off the concrete slab. Not only that but it will cut off a lot of our view from the kitchen.


should i ditch the beam and buy something just big enough for what i am doing or cut this one down? Not sure which way to go here.
