Near the end of the road? Huge kitchen area, don't they say everything in Texas is "BIG"? Nice work, party/pizza time.

Tracy,

Thanks for the complement of copying my landing I am glad someone else likes it. I like your brick on the vertical surface of the landing. I think I agree on the temp issue I may just be paranoid.

I think I will be going with a mosaic tile pattern to add a splash of color but because of our approaching winter the tile work will need to wait until spring. It is only a 7 ft table but it is in 3 pieces so a little easier to handle that heavy stuff. I cannot imagine dealing with a 4X8 slab that would be real heavy.

I am not sure it is stealing if I already stole it.

It works for both Pizza and Bread. Pizza about 120g - 140g balls for a 10-12 inch. Because I use Bread flour it will be springy so you need to do an initial stretch/toss to about 8 inches, let it rest for about 5 minutes and then stretch/toss to final size. Makes nice crisp thin crust with great flavor.

I wouldn't worry about heat at the landing - especially with the heat break. Granite, slate, soapstone - any would be fine. I would consider stain resistance (e.g. grease!) a bigger issue than heat/spalling.

I do like a mosaic at the entry. I left an area in my concrete pour that is going to have a ~9" x 40" mosaic.

Post Re: Texman Build

Not much happening here. Waiting on the stucco guy to come back after forgetting to get the color ordered. Took my templates for a stainless door and landing to a fabricator this morning and i am waiting to hear from him on pricing for those. With any luck, the stucco will be done this weekend and maybe the door and landing.

I actually have a kitchen without a brick saw in it and i don't miss that saw.
I have a whole bunch of cedar setting at my house for the pergola. Plan is to stain and seal it and then erect the thing. Should start that next weekend. Weather should be in the mid 70s throughout the week and weekend.

Be safe with Sandy (stormzilla) all.
Tracy

Hi Tex,

Good to see you are still alive. Not much happening on my end either. Just a few winterizing items on the WFO going on. I should do the same and get my door cut and fabricated. At least you can still work, it snowed several days here last week.

Smile Re: Texman Build

Finally got the stucco done. I remember why i did all this myself now. Dealing with contractors can be a pain. Anyway, it is done. Waiting on the stainless door and landing. As for my jobs, I have trim work to do at the top of the enclosure, clean the bricks again, clean the whole thing again and again. My fridge needs an alignment that will require some removal of the post back there. I need to finish the cedar on the posts and stain all that. Not sure what i am doing on the floor, any ideas out there?
