    I had mine built but you could do it yourself out of stone if you're decent at masonry.

    That doesn't leave much time. After unloading 6500 lbs I'm sure you're exhausted. Keep us posted on how it comes along.

  • Just saw this thread, did you reroute the drain down spout? The first 2 pics show it draining into and under the Egg table. 
    ·
  • doubledouble Posts: 1,214
    Yes the drain spout is being re routed there is a space behind it the blocks don't go right up to the house so I can do it after the walls built. With the sunken area I am planning a double stepped counter so that people can sit at short stools on the raised side.

     Looks great!  Wish we had that much room  Another side effect of egging, the need to upgrade the cooking area. We had our old on grade deck removed and the area done in pavers so the egg would not be embarrassed.
