Hello - we are new here. Wanted to share the photos of how we are starting a shed to cover where we are building an Outdoor kitchen.

We are new and so I am not sure about posting photos but the link above will take you to the photos. We put two bags of cement down
in each post hole but have to get another bag for each hole to fill it up. Then, we have to learn how to frame in the top. Thank you for tips
and advice.

Looks like you are well on your way. How much slope will the roof have? Do you plan on catching the water off the roof to be able to wash your hands and/or dishes out there? There seems to be some sort of patio or something next to the outdoor oven, is it close to the house? I think it is a Great project.

Hello - thanks for looking at my post. We made more progess this week. Waiting on the tin now.
Yes, there is a cement pad raised up next to where the kitchen will go. A mistake made four years ago
resulted in an ugly raised area on which we have a Hot Tub. Live and learn. The outdoor kitchen shed roof
will have gutter on the back so that rain water can be caught if need be. For now we will divert it to a water shed
area where it will become part of the water shed going to a small creek. There is a cement water cistern behind
the outdoor kitchen. It has spring water and for now we have enough spring water. If there ever is a problem
with the spring water, the rain from roof if kitchen can be put in the cistern.

Here is a link to the progress so far: http://www.facebook.com/MeanwhileBackinSaluda

Thank you.
