Thanks for the update!
That looks great! Can't wait to see the final product.
Not to nitpick, but isn't that more of a pergola than a gazebo?
It's more like a stylized carport imo, or " covered patio". I thought pergolas were open at the top. Like just slats. But then I googled it and both came up so maybe you're right.
I dunno. When I think gazebo, I think octagons. But, it may just mean a roof an open sides.
Thanks, Bob Vila.
Did anyone stop to ask what the structure self-identifies as? I THOUGHT NOT.
Okay, so it is about the roof.
There's a ton of pergolas around here. Back patios, along the front of homes above windows. We have a ton of sun but little rain in the warmer months. People use them for partial shade and to grow plants upon for more shade and cooling.
Manufacture calls it a "Gazebo" so I went with it.
I wanted full shade and also cover from the rain so a traditional pergola was out.
It's not pronounced "gays beau."
I can't remember of I've posted this here before. My best friend's dad built this back when we were kids. He was a very talented cabinet and furniture builder. The truck did time in a ton of museums.
New cutting board
Got the first island framed. I put a strip of Trex under each footing for water protection. This was a real pain in the dick. The back corner is apprx 3" lower for drainage so it was either shim the shit out of it, or cut each stud to size to make the countertop level. I choose to custom cut each stud. I think that was the better choice. The lower section on the right side is where the Egg is going to live.
Little update. I'm using this system for the forms and mesh https://concretecountertopsolutions.com/pages/counterform-collections . Seems pretty straightforward and it helps that my neighbor does concrete work and is going to help trowel smooth and make sure I don't fuck it up.
That neighbour will be worth his weight in beer.
Looks great! Makes me wish I had a backyard that suited something similar.
I just had to move ~1000lbs of pavers, ~2000lbs of dirt, 5-6 hedges, add concrete and bam! A backyard suited for a gazebo haha
Quick pic until I get it all cleaned up
Very nice! I've got the same griddle and smoker, and almost the same BBQ... just missing the kick ass outdoor cook shack to go with them.
I am so jealous of people who have climates that can have nice outdoor kitchens like that
