There will be a fridge in the grill island. I've been trying to figure out how to integrate a sink. I'd have to add on to my grill island or put it on one of the sides of the pizza oven. I ran a main line out there when I ran the sprinklers so I could have a sink... but I'm not sure where I would drain to. I will have to look in to that a little more.

Well guys with my front yard and sprinklers everywhere done, I started on the layout this last weekend. Got everything leveled out, went and picked up 2 truck bed loads of gravel (I have short bed Tacoma so it took 2 loads), Picked up a few 2x6's at various lengths and if everything goes well I should be able to have my foundations poured on Saturday. We are also doing a housewarming party that day so it is perfect timing to show people the project I've been working on and talking about. All I have to do before the pour is re-route the electrical to the main structure and then put a junction box so I can run another conduit back in to the grill island.

It is exciting progress for me. Next week (after I get paid) I can probably get my block ordered. So far the best price I have found is $1.84 for an 8x8x16 paint grade cinder block from a local place called buehner block. I don't know what the difference is between paint grade and standard. Does anyone know?

So I've included my sketch up drawings (these include the exact block number I will need) and my concrete pour prep pictures. Tell me your thoughts and Ideas/suggestions as always but so far I think I'm on the right track. (the concrete will of course be rebar reinforced when I pour) My truck is dirty from offroading last week... another fun hobby

Paint grade has a consistent surface...but that sounds high for block. If you plan to do anything other than paint use standard CMU. they should only be around 1.20-1.60

Loren,

Nice start and your sketchup layout looks like it will be quite and entertainment center. FYI, Buehner block is where you can get Perlite when you get to that point. It runs about $9-10 a four cubic foot bag as well as wire ladder reinforcment for concrete counters if you go that way.

Thanks Russell, I am definitely planning on a concrete countertop. I have a buddy who does concrete and his friend specializes in counters. He did his entire kitchen for about 900 bucks and they were all nicely colored. I think for the main pizza oven section though I'll do the standard concrete counter myself. we'll see though. I need to get my pad poured and then I'll be ready for the block.

Buehner block gave me a quote for standard cmu and it was actually more @ $2.03 per block. I'll have to continue shopping around since I would like it to be delivered. Since I need about 250 blocks my Taco won't be able to take nearly that many with 1 or 2 trips max so it is more worth it to get it delivered.

Ok so as many of you know I initially purchased two blades a cheaper one and an expensive one. With the expensive black one I was only able to cut 11 bricks in half which was far from the expectation. I was cutting very slow at many times just letting gravity do the work. I cut a medium duty fire brick with no problems but the heavy duty ones are more than twice as dense.

I contacted the manufacturer MK and after several emails they were going to replace the blade with something they said should be more suitable for cutting my super heavy duty brick.

The cheap blade is right at 11 bricks now and is still cutting pretty good. As backup in case all of these blades go out I bought an additional 3 blades for only 26 bucks from someone here locally.

When it comes to cutting I should be set.

I wanted to let everyone know that it was great to work with MK. They make great blades and have greate customer service. They reviewed pictures of my brick and blade, and found a different blade more suitable for my needs. I'm looking forward to see how the new blade will cut once the cheapy wears out.

Welcome to the world of super duty Geneva bricks, warned ya, they are 65% alumina and are #@$ on diamond blades. I would try and minimize your cuts as much as possible. Striving for a tight inside joint only. IMHO.
