    I have a space in progress...

    Headed toward this vision as weather allows. All local contractors are way behind due to recent rains. 

    A friend of mine built a gazebo a decade or so ago that had metal roofing that was open underneath.

    It was so loud under that when the typical afternoon downpours occurred that he started keeping a box of those disposable foamy ear plugs there so folks could use them if they needed to.

    @fishlessman:  How old are your eggs?  Just curious.  Haven't seen many that look as old as mine.

    Only a couple of details. I would definitely put a slope on the slab so that water would run off after a rain. Currently I have to squeegee the floor after every rain - it gets old.
    Also - if you ever have to install a metal stove pipe/chimney DO NOT use an articulation (bend). They seem to leak when it rains no matter what.

    Otherwise I have really been happy with the layout of the kitchen.

    @SciAggie, Don't know if it can be done with a slab that large, but at my former company, we had a sidewalk with 5x5'ish slabs separated by expansion joints. Over the years, the slabs got a little cockeyed. We had someone realign them by drilling holes in strategic locations and pumping something (concrete I assume) in there to raise the low spots. Seemed to work well and was still level when i retired several years later. Leaves a mark though. Might be worth checking out.

    Might wanna get a guarantee that they'll pour a new slab if the old one cracks. =)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Pump-jacking, I think.  Telltale signs on porches and driveways when looking at houses, I usually walk away from those to get away from the settling issues.

    Going to redo some of the set up after 10 years since we built this. I am going to remove the 48” gasser and put the egg in that spot and hopefully have room for a pizza cooker.

    Dog toys?

    Great looking setup. You got some space to work with.

    Thanks @Thatgrimguy we love it. We’re pretty blessed to live in the woods and hills.

    We built it because the wife had a water feature and new stone patio put in a couple of years ago and my grills blocked the view of her garden from the patio. One afternoon after a couple cocktails she was once again voicing her displeasure when I shot back that she should build me a grilling shack. It got a little carried away before the final design/build =)

    pics of the backyard for reference. I still keep a gas Weber on the patio for quick wintertime cooks and keeping stuff warm when eating outside in the summer.

    @Mr1egg how do you keep the eggs from falling out?
    It’s hard but I used a lot of glue… I don’t know why all my pictures get flipped
