    Great looking hangout. I could imagine myself sitting on the bench enjoying the Gulf breeze, smelling meat and smoke, and sipping on a cold beer. Worth points for helping me paint that mental picture.

    Thanx man, this is like our weekend hangout,and usually a couple a nights through the week as well, we also have a fire pit a few steps past the shed on the side, next to the canal out back
     
  19. Great place!  Love the use of the carport cover.  I made my area from pallets, built trusses and put a metal roof on.  I like your idea much better.  Wife wants to move but I've been holding back with knowing I can't take smoking area.  Your way is so much easier and better and more economical.  Thanks for sharing

    We found a company to build it 18 wide by 15 long, standard carports are 18 by 21, they were here and installed it 1 1/2 hrs,, 800.00

    Was going to build out of wood and shingles to match home, but, was going to be around 1500.00 and I would have had to do the work ....
