Outdoor living space
This is our pride and joy. It is our outdoor kitchen that my husband and I built. (yes, he says I am a wonderful helper). Our vision was to have a covered patio area for entertaining and cooking. First picture shows the frame and roof completed. Then the more we looked at it we decided we would like to have a half wall going around the sides and maybe a wood buring fireplace. The blocks came from a local church built here in the 1940s. Man, was it ever a stinker to clean off all the concrete. After we got the old concrete off I took some stain and blotted on the blocks to give the wall a little color. Well, you would think one be happy with what we had. A few night out in the Oklahoma air and we knew that in order to beat the mosquitos, we would need to go to one step further. That step would be screen in the kitchen and add a screen door and it had to have a doggie door! One last detail was added last summer, I dreamed of finishing it off with a porch and honey said ok. So, finally we were done. It has everything one needs to entertain family and friends! Grill, icebox, cable tv, running water. Who could ask for anything more!
