Default dusty's gittin' done!

Hi all!
Miss you guys. Just a quick update to let you-all know that all is good and my project is almost done- I see light at the end of the tunnel!
This summer I set out to finish my outdoor kitchen. I made my counters from old pool table slates...they are black...so hot in the sun that you can't touch them. No good. I deceided to build a canopy over the entire project. Seemed like a good idea at the time but has turned into a HUGE endevor.
But I am finally done laying bricks and, thanks to my welding sons, I am reaching the end of the canopy project.
I will try not to be such a stanger.

I have taken some pictures of the giant metal superstructure but I can't seem to get the uploaded onto here. Sorry. I will try again soon.

More metal. 24 guage sheets. Painted white on both sides from the manufacturer. I will glue and screw them down as when they tried to weld one into place, it warped badly.

Dusty,

That is an amazing set up! (where can I find some "Welding Sons"?) The canopy is going to be fantastic.

At least you won't have any concerns with structural integrity!
