First of all a big thank you to James for starting this site and to everyone that has taken the time to share their build experiance with those of us that are just starting out. I am not sure I can top the documentation or the quality of build that Dinno has done but I will give it a shot.

With all the information that I have read I am getting near paralysis due to analysis and I thought it would just be best to get on with it and start to build.

My idea is to build a 42" oven with a counter top area and gas grill to the right. The idea is to end up with an outdoor kitchen.

In constructing the foundation I got a little carried away with the excavation so I have at least 8 inches of base rock compacted with a vibraplate compactor and 5 inches of concrete with wire mesh and #4 rebar around the perimeter of the slab.

The pour went well now on to the construction of the base.
