That's funny. You know, when I was pouring my insulated foundation, they had pallets of Perlite & Vermiculite. Now that I need 10 bags, all they had was a few here and a few there. Most had holes all over the bags. You should have seen me taping up holes like a madman. I did get a couple of strange looks, even asked what is all that for? Then got high 5's when I explained its for a WFO!

So everyone doesn't think I've gone sedentary now that the oven is done, here's a picture of our arbor construction.

I'm over-engineering it so it will withstand the weight of 2 ceiling fans and a wisteria cover - using 6x6 posts and lots of concrete .

Nice! You could hang up hammocks between those posts, too. For when you do finally take a break from all this construction stuff...

Here's a quick Arbor Update:

The structure is finished. I'm waiting for the electrician to come out to hook up some electricity to it. It will have two ceiling fans, a floodlight to light up the oven and several outlets. We are also thinking about building some integrated counters in the corner for bar stools.

We had a pizza party for 25+ adults a couple weekends ago. The oven performed beautifully. My son and I essentially ran a "cook-to-order" pizza restaurant for 2 hours. What a blast!!

My other news is that the recent windstorm here in Louisville (courtesy of IKE) provided me with a nice oak and walnut tree. I broke down and bought a log splitter; an MTD Yard Machine from HD. It works GREAT. I highly recommend either buying or renting one (my 43 year old body can't handle splitting wood like it used to). I then built the nifty wood rack out of scrap treated lumber I had laying around. It's loosely based on this Lowe's project: Firewood Rack
