Good stuff. What kind of roof are you going to put on it?
Is it for eating or cooking under?

That is going to be my BBQ shack. The slab is actually a 6" thick shell reinforced with rebar. The center is bagged base material.

It's been a while since you poured the base ~ I thought you might have given up on the idea. Glad to see things are moving along. It looks good!

Hey zilla, is that slab poured out of square? The post in the right rear sits on top of the slab, and the one in the right front looks like its on the outside edge. Optical illusion?

You guys are very observant. The two rear posts were set into the concrete the width of a 2x4 because they were not buried as deep in the ground as the front posts are. The ground in my back yard has huge chunks of limestone about 6" under the top soil so he couldn't dig deeper with out bringing in some machinery. The guy that poured the slab and set the posts decided to do it like that. I was hog hunting at the time and didn't see it until I got home. Aside from getting the frame square it didn't cause any difficulty.

That there is a BBQ smoke shack "The BBQ-Bana" and it will be full of cooking gear. There will be room for a few folks to stand around and drink beer but I intend for it to be the outdoor cooking area. BTW thanks for the compliments I'm jazzed about it.
