Default finally finished

taken a while to put the last bricks in, maybe cause because once you can cook in the oven and its functional the rush to finish it diminished somewhat. Anyway now I have to start on the outdoor kitchen now!
Cheers

Thumbs up Re: finally finished

Something to be proud of crwdtb

I like the continuity between the brick veneer on the oven and stand and the patio brick, nice touch

Probably too late now, but you should have put some flashing underneath the pine bottom plate, it will rot away in 1 or 2 years from the moisture.

Radiata pine is notorious for failing with moisture.
You need to keep it off the ground, covering it may protect it but if you get a leak it will rot.
Treated pine would have been a better option outdoors.

If you could somehow lift that untreated pine off the ground.. even 1/4" to allow any water to weep away that would be a big help. The other thing you can do,is make sure the enclosed area has ventilation. That way any water that does get in, can evaporate and get out. Somehow get at least 2 vents in there.. in the back maybe where it's not seen? If you could get 4 in, even better (2 down low, 2 up high to encourage air movement.

The venting will help with any scenario, so try to get that in there.

typically we use treated lumber like brikie said you may be able to slide a piece of sheet metal under the bottom plate
