Cooking Pavilion
« on: December 03, 2011, 02:31:24 PM »
I have been wanting to build something like this for a while and decided it was time to get started.
The area under roof will be 12x10 feet with a Brick oven on one side and a cooking BBQ pit on another.
The ovens will not be under cover.  The floor will be brick pavers.  The Table and chairs I have planned will be log base with 2x tops.   Everything I build is by the seat of my pants and sometimes I change as I go along. :D  The logs are Pine my neighbor had taken down to plant fruit trees.  I've had them a few months and they are hard with resin pitch.

 

This is what they look like after I sanded with 40 grit and then bleached them with a paint brush.

 

I did manage to get a drop of bleach in my right eye on the second post and am still have eye pain from that.  I wear protective eye covering for most jobs and somehow forgot how dangerous this stuff is.
Used one of those cheap brushes you get in a bag of ten for a few dollars and the bleach ate the bristles.  That is some caustic stuff and finished the job with glasses and a better brush.

One of the logs had a branch I felt should be incorporated into the frame.
It will be used to hold a grill brush or sumpthin. ;)

 

The logs were notched to rest the 2x6s.

Glen,
Did you treat the log ends with something before putting them in the ground?

Is there a good cheap alternative to the creasote we used to buy? Any recipies for homebrew creasote?

Pappy, do you mean "bull"?

Around here if I put anything in or on the ground I use termidor pretty heavy even if it's treated wood. untreated pine is candy to them.

The Subs are terrible here.

Raider Bill I'm not sure what ya mean by "bull" if it means tar than dat be it  ;D Of late I use the plastic cement stuff on ground contact like the end of a post up here in the north country, mostly just to keep out moisture ... We don't have to deal with termites as we don't have 'em but we do have carpenter ants and those are mostly in standing live wood... If we leave anything on the ground and sometimes not,, the lil pine borers, them lil b'jezlers will bore the heck out of the balsam fir  >:(  The other day I pulled an old white cedar fence post out of some wet / damp ground and the part to the weather, top 4 feet was mostly gone like from a 5" diam post down to about half of that... I placed that post about 27 years ago... The part that was mostly rotten was right at the base with the ground contact.. The peeked part down in the ground was almost like the day I planted it.  :o  Lack of oxygen would be my guess why it lasted   ???

Yep the black nasty tar stuff. We call it "Bull" don't know why but everyone calls it that. Gets on everything you don't want it to and doesn't come off. We have major issues with both dry wood and subterranean termites here. I'll take the dry wood one anytime as if you see 1 drywood mite there's hundreds, if you see one sub there's millions.

I got to work some more on the pavillion on Sunday and Monday and got the trusses made.
It took me 2 days to make them.  Got half of them stained along with 1/2 of the pavillion and ran out of stain.  My daughter went to the Store for me and they were out of the stain I used.  I'll find some at another location.  I had to go back to work today after vacation and it was doozey.  One store had lost refrigeration and I just got home.  The plan was to finish staining and start putting the trusses up but that may not happen until Saturday.
These pics are from early Sunday when starting the truss system and before stain.
The lil shelter in the background hoarding junk used to be a Goat's Pen.  We used to have Goats when our kids were young but that's a story for another day. :D
The shelter has been there for 19 years and has also had a tree fall on it back in 2004.
It is still standing.   I'm not worried about the bugs because they are already crawling on the frame as I'm working on it.  The bug man will take care of it. ;D
Working by myself seems to take twice as long.  Every time I need a holder you gotta make da holder or da stopper. :D

Getting here is real easy Marcel.
You just hop on da plane and I pick you up at the Airport. :)
Pappy, my cook shack will never measure up to yours but you should know that yours did inspire me to make one ever since I saw what you built.  This one is just practice for what I'll build at the campsite. :)
Here is Pappy's Cook Shack.

Mh, that Cooking Pavilion is coming along nicely.  Bleaching and staining as you go is a very smart idea.   smiley_thumbsup

The Gator hasn't been seen for a while.  I'm pretty sure he is gone because he would come out to sun himself otherwise.  That was part of his daily routine.  I'd walk down there every time he was on the bank to make him leave and he'd go into the pond.  I was hoping he would tire of me and go towards the canal.  With the canal as our property line, seems the gators highway will always keep us on our toes.  Thankfully most of the time they're of manageable size.
My SIL came over to get him a couple days after we last seen it and he was no where to be found.
Our neighbor had one called in and removed from his pond right around the same time but his was somewhat aggressive.  Ours was a little bigger but skiddish.  I'm not a big fan of gator meat but wouldn't mind cooking some for you guys. :D
