Thumbs up Re: Neill's new kitchen underway!

Yes thanks for that CajunKnight,
that one was missing the glass and I doubt that you would buy anything without a special made one.
I checked out ebay worldwide last night but I will need at least 2 lights the same to cover the large table planned. There are a couple of gaslight antique places inthe US which I will be keeping my eyes on and contacting direct.
I will keep a watch out and something will come up.
I got a 1200mm 3 speed stainless steel reversable ceiling fan last night so it is well under way.

Saturday 25 July 08.
Got home from the wrecking yard and continued the demolition. I demolished the old pergola (well at least most of it yesterday on my day off).
Today, I laid into the brick flower boxes adjacent to the oven entrance benches and will remove the long flower box alongside the kitchen tomorrow.
That will give me a full trailer load of around a ton of smashed bricks/rocks to dump next week.
Been talking with the other half tonight and decided to remove the cast concrete tops and one of the brick cupboards/benchtop supports and replace them with some custom made kitchen cupboards to suit the new outdoor kitchen requirements rather than trying to meet our requirenments with outdated modified facilities. We have also decided to fit a fridge there as we have a spare smaller one that we always strap to the camper trailer drawbar and take 300km on holidays every year for the pasr 25 years, still works a treat.
I will leave the brick cupboard to the left of the oven for wood storage, but put on a new top..
Big clean up tomorrow after a serious demolition and will post the latest pics tomorrow night.
Been putting a lot of effort into the intended gaslights, but keep running into dead ends with only single lamps available. I have spent probably 20 hours on the internet to find something that I like but most alternatives are over $500 + freight from the States. I am not prepared at this stage to spend that much. Anyway, I can always add them later without problems.
I even looked and discussed with lpg specialist in modifying the camping style gaslights to run on natural gas but am almost tempted to stick with electric, Tiffany leadlight lampshades and possibly flicker lights if they throw adequate light but may need to put 6 in per shade.

Sunday night, 26 July,
Well it was up and into it, The 16lb sledge hammer lived up to it's reputation in knocking the heck out of the planter boxes that I methodically built to last 3o years ago.
Don't you hate having to undo the work that you have done and done too well in the past.
Well, somebody had to do it, at least it is for the better.
Firstly we had to remove all the soil and drainage material (broken bricks and 2" rock in the bottoms of the planters), then lay into them with the sledge.
It was a bit hairy barrowing the loads down a plank into the awaiting trailer. A ton went to the recyclers and wil probably come back as road fill.
I was to leave the Monsteria Deliciosus (fruit salad plant) for the son in law, so all care taken not to damage it or it's roots but tonight, not wanted so will be on the next load of rubbish. That's life, especially in a busy household.
My stainless steel ceiling fan was delivered late this morning (yes, Australia Post actually delivered 2 parcels) so into the storeroom ready for installation in around a month.
Until next week-end.

Neill

Fruit salad plant? I didn't know you could eat one... The tropical plants here are mostly limited to terrariums, unfortunately, so I don't know them as well as I'd like to!

The destruction looks like it's going well, Neill. My boys like it when they have things to destroy with a sledge...

Hi Neill,

I was doing a bit more research on gas lights. On one of the home improvment shows I watch occasionally (my lovely wife refers as home improvment porn) - They made a demonstation of making a gas light. It looks like a project well within your impressive skill level.

The 500 USD pricing you referred to is correct. Those things are expensive!!!

https://www.legacylanterns.com/s-57-broad-street.aspx

I found a few that were a bit cheaper but cannot vouch for the website as I have not used it.

I'm now looking for parts so I can build my own...

Cheers!

Christo

Hi Elizabeth,
the fruit salad plant as it is commonly called produces a fruit which tastes like fresh fruit salad. Although it does not bear fruit in the cooler climate in Adelaide, it produces much more fruit in more tropical areas of Australia. See:

Monstera deliciosa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Christo,
I almost bought some gas lights through ebay but thet were incomplete and quite a hefty postage to me. They are an unknown commodity but will keep an eye out as I have plenty of time to get them together if I do ultimately go down that track. One light thAt i was looking at had a starting bid of $50 but a postage fee to Australia of $545.85. A bit rich but on further examination to check this extaution it ended up as $64. Why do they advertise such STUPID figures?

Neill

Neill, We use a kero light (Alladin) Tey produce a beautiful soft light with dimmer ability and they have a mantle, but are not pressurised. They were the the leading technology before electric lights killed them off. I have a couple and use them when we're outdoors rather than the awful fluro. You can still buy them and they still make them but they're pricey.

Niell, I looked at your layout. It is very nice. I noticed you have the oven set back in the corner. It looks like you have the oven behind the counter? If the oven is behind the counter, you will have a very long reach to access the oven. Unless the counter does not go into the corner. Do you have a walkway to the oven? It is hard to tell from the drawing.
Very cool roof design. Jim

David,
I am very aware of the old "Tillie light" as the old kero pressurised lamp was called when I was a kid (God that's too many years to go back to).
We used them in the holiday shack on Weroona Island where there was no electricity. A little noisy and have to pump them up occassionally and light them with a metholated spirits dipped wick.

Jim
Yes the oven is on ther back of the 1100mm retaining wall, behind what was my original built in lpg barbeque. All of the old benches and barbeque is being demolished and new melamine cupboards with timber doors will be installed along the end of the patio with free access into the oven. It is very easy to access already, just stand there and reach in with your arm if you are silly enough to try. The deepest that I must reach is to set and light the fire and that is achieved effortlesly.

Neill
