No,
a bar fridge is a waste of time as they are too small.
I have a smaller fridge, 2 door around a 12 cubic foot to go in besides the wood storage bench which will provide the cold drinks and pizza toppings.
I also have a 39l Engel 12/240 volt fridge that can be dragged out if needed.
The large 2 door SS side by side fridge is only through the wall in the kitchen and another 12 cubic foot 2 door fridge up stairs. Plenty of cold storage.

Need to maintain the tradition of the weekly posting!
Sunday 7th September, Fathers Day here down under.Very little achieved this week end as I had difficulty with the argon gas supplier on Friday for the argoshield mig gas. Only a half full $180 cylinder delivered, Not happy at all as I was asked not to use it which stuffed my planned weekend completely.
Well then, onto painting, but it rained every time I went out to get the framework painted. I got most of the purlins done yesterday except for one which I planned on doing this morning. Fathers Day and up to the alarm, wrong! it was wet and raining, so up into the veggy garden and dig it over in readiness for a batch of those special Italian tomatoes that I have sewn.
I had to go to the son's home for breaky and got home to paint at lunchtime, just in time to catch another shower of rain.
Mid afternoon it was fine so off I go, get 80% through it and down it pours again. Wash up and give up for this week-end. try again next week!
I have a large gum tree being cut down mid week so will have plenty of great hardwood for the oven once it dries out. I recon an around 5 to 6 ton! Will put some pics on the day.

what on earth is argoshield mig gas??? It sounds ominous. And certainly not good eats.

Sorry your Father's Day was a literal washout- I hope next week's better!

Hi Elizabeth,
No we don't eat nor use it for cooking, but is a necessity for both Mig and Tig welding.
Argoshield is a non flammable gas that is piped down a tube on the Mig welder and encompasses the arc when wire welding. It excludes the oxygen from the welding arc and gives a nice clean smooth weld on your joints.
Arc or 'stick welding' has a 'flux' coated on the welding rod which does a very similar thing but leaves a heavy deposit on the weld which must be chipped off.
The 8.9 cubic metre bottles have around 3000 lbs/ sq inch pressure in them and the one delivered to me only had 1000 lbs/ squ inh in it and at $180 per cylinder, I am only getting 1/3 of what I am paying for!

Wednesday 10 September and it's tree cutting time.
The large gun tree that has overshadowed the oven abd new patio had to come down and created a huge problem as it was not accessible by cherry picker or truck, so it was up to a tree climber, roping and cutting limb by limb and log by log.
The trunk was almost the limit that would designate the tree as one of significance and hence come under council legislation..
there were 3 on the ground and one up climbing the tree cutting it down over a 6 hour period.
The only casualty was the 33 year old little picket fence when a 24" diameter 600kg log from the lower trunk was swung over the lawn and rolled onto it.
I now have around 5 to 6 ton of hardwood which I need to split and stack for oven and slow combustion use next winter.

PS. Having trouble uploading the pictures!
PPS. Got the pics up at last

Another week-end over and a little more progress.
Cutting out the rather large overhanging gum tree set me back a little but it is now down and almost put away. Some of the log rounds are so heavy that I need a sack truck to move them and I can really swing an axe but they just bounce off them. Guess the chainsaw will be working overtime when I need to use the dried wood either in the oven or heating the house next winter.
Well, the frame is complete and I finished the painting tonight. The roofing material was ordered last Monday and I should pick it up hopefully on my day off, next Wednesday afternoon.
Hopefully, weather permitting, I will have some pics with the roof on and measured up for the new cupboards.

Neill

Work tomorrow!, but holidays commence on Friday. I should get a host of work on the kitchen done then.
I came home crook last Friday, spending the day in bed, early to bed to sweat it out that night and again last night. I thought that I was coming good today, but after a heavy days work, I feel like I've come from a pub brawl, tired, aching and very sore.
My son came around for an hour and a half to help with the long sheets of colourbond and I had to stop when I ran out of tech screws. I will pick up some more on Tuesday and finish the roof on Friday.
Things are looking good and progress can be seen without all the behind the scenes work.

Well.
over a month gone by and the kitchen/patio is progressing although a little slower than the oven build but progressing.
The kitchen cupboards have been ordered and hopefully ready for pickup in around a week, the 10 seat 3 metre table arrived assembled and installed, the required 500mm diameter lamps sourced and installed, the fences re railed and the veggy garden refreshed with new citrus trees and all the required veggies planted and being tendered.
Guess you could say that I have been busy with 2 trips to the recycle depot )rubbish and garden waste) and 3 trailer loads of horse manure for the new roses and gardens from the racing stables.
More to do on the fence this week-end and prepare the cement counter for tiling when the overhead cupboards arrive for installation. There needs to be around an inch or so cut off the front edge and slope it slightly towards the front for drainage, I also need to build a veneer wall first to hang the overhead cupboards but that's only a couple of hours and a dozen lengths of treated timber.
I've been debating on the benchtops, Granite slabs? laminex/formica?, tiles? or have settled on laminated River Redgum as I have 3 rather large, thick and verrrrry heavvvy slabs (2100 x 100 x 700mm) which I will rip down thickness, glue and finish in oil rather than painting with epoxy or 2 pack clear.I don't want them 4" thick so will cut then for around 1 1/2" finished.
I will post some pics when it looks like things are happening and can be seen.

Neill

Wow, sounds like you have been busy Neil!

The wood for the bench tops sounds cool. Please post a picture of the lumber before you rip it and finish it, so we can see before and after photos of the finishing I know River Redgum is native to Oz, but I don't know what it looks like or anything else about it. Guess I better go Google it.
