Despite being a hurting unit, I managed to rebuild the fire pit this morning before the heat hits full force. I still have another layer of stones to bring out from home. It'll look great once we get the sod layed down. But that's for next weekend.

Yesterday morning I dug out the remaining stones from the fire pit at home to bring out. The pit is now complete. Next is sod. We're also planning an outdoor kitchen area. Our camper has an outdoor kitchen at the back but it's basically a small sink, counter and refrigerator. We're planning an extension to the deck with a covered roof and some cupboard space. The barbecue will also be included. Oh, and I'm hoping to pick up a propane 3 burner stove with oven.

Yah. It sucks being at camp. Not a breath of wind nor cloud in the sky. Already heating up to about 26 Celsius at 10am. Sitting out by the fire enjoying a morning cup of coffee while playing guitar. Birds chirping in the background.

The heat finally caught up with me this evening. I stood up in the camper, took 3 steps to the bathroom and fell face first on our bed just beyond the bathroom. Thankfully my wife was there and wet a towel and grabbed an ice pack from the freezer and cooled me down

I picked up a load of treated lumber for camp. We had built a 16x16 deck last fall. Now, we have decided to build a 10x10' outdoor kitchen. We already picked up an old propane oven. It'll also hold the bbq so ventilation is important. It's going to basically have 2 walls and a clear corrugated roof.

Outdoor kitchens are awesome!

Good luck with the project and enjoy it while you use it!

We just figured that on a hot day we can both be outside and not heat up the camper.

So after driving 6hrs yesterday, I finally got to camp yesterday. After supper, the plan was to start laying out the wood and plan for building a deck extension for the outdoor kitchen. One thing led to another and 3 hrs later, I had the deck built. I still have to screw down the deck boards today.

Next will be walls and a roof. But I still have to plan that out. It'll all be treated wood and will last for years.

Got the deck finished today. The propane stove is hooked up and frying meat for tacos. Kids are down at the lake swimming while I fry hamburger for tacos.

So I came out to camp yesterday with 3 of the kids. I got started on the walls of the outdoor kitchen. This is where I stopped last night.

This morning was a toss up between doing sfa and starting on the roof. The roof won. I like to keep busy. So I did a lot of figuring and measuring along with some cutting and drilling. Here's the progress so far.

The kitchen is done as far as I can go today. (Out of screws) The roof will be clear corrugated plastic panels to allow light in.

Got the kitchen finished. We decided that we're building a half wall with support post just to make it more sturdy. Then I got the idea to turn the half wall into a bar. So more work to be done on Thursday when I go back to town for supplies.
