Wow this was an awesome build! One day I hope to have something half as nice as what you built.

Thanks, MetallHed.

Here are a few more pictures to wrap up the build.

A few more items of trim to be added, and some site cleanup to go.. but it's pretty much complete. I drank a beer and grilled some food the other night in my new kitchen area. Despite being 34, I loved every minute of it. It's going to stay like this for a few monts, and then we'll be adding concrete counter tops and a bar sink this summer.

The wine bottles are actually homemade tiki torches (example photo, not mine) that we made a few years back. I'll be mounting them on the posts.

It's been a lot of fun sharing these photos and experiences with you over the past several months. Thank you for all your encouraging comments and feedback. I'll post a few more photos and updates as they come, but I'm happy to be finally/maybe/tentatively/hopefully declaring this project.. DONE.

It's time for a beer!

Congrats on your awesome build!

You even finished off the deck with a great grill. Looks like you have the same model that I have. Can't beat grilling on a Weber while drinking a homebrew!
