    Hi, new guy here.

    I'm here to learn and hopefully help people when i document my build.  I plan on sharing my victories and failures so hopefully people will learn from a new guys mistakes.

    I am into developing my outdoor living space.  What started out as a small addition to a patio turned into a multi level patio with outdoor fireplace and pizza/bread oven.  The next phase will be to add a double barel horizonal smoker.

    My dream for the patio was to make it entirely out of pavers, stone, and stainless steel so that it is maintenance free.

    I thought myself to TIG weld the stainless steel railing over the upper patio.  That led to welding the stainless roof of the pizza oven.  Next is to make a stainless double smoker.  It will cost more upfront, but I won't have to build a new one every five years because of rusting.

    I am in Ohio, so lots of cold winters and rainy summers.  That is the reason for the stainless.  Below is a pict of the fireplace and pizza oven.  Next year I plan on facing everything with stone, so it is still somewhat unfinished, but functional.  The smoker will be placed to the left of the pizza oven. There isn't a scale in the photo, so it's kinda hard to tell, but the fireplace is about 4 feet wide.
