    The Big Chief just wasn't getting it anymore... Had some parts laying around and time to kill....

    built base and top....

    added bracing and checked size for my propane burner....

    Got a deal on siding since wifey said I couldn't use pallet parts

    Any crew is only as good as it's weakest member... so if this turns bad it's not my fault....

    Spent $60 at home depot for 6" t&g pine. Cut the doors out... looks good....

    Cleo sez that the hardie board looks OK....

    Plenty of room for the made in frickin China double burner....

    Not too bad for a short build mostly out of recovered materials... Have 5 pounds of pepper jerky curing in the fridge.  

    The dead lay as they fell....Reinforcements were brought in as the casualty count rose.....

    Cleo sez..... Have another cold one daddy... you earned it!!!!!!

    In all, I spent about $125 in materials and $5 in chewed up carpenter pencils... Thanks Cleo.....

    b-one... Not the lions... Tigers have done well lately.  I kinda root for the lions though.. they always have the lowest payroll and they seem to somehow do well in spite of it... re: boiled dog... Have had boiled cat before... it's all in the sauce[​IMG]

    Jar Jar... Smoke is t minus 10 hours... Might be later is the beer holds out[​IMG]  

    Edit... Jarjar.. just realized that you did the purple house build with your daughter.  I really enjoyed that post.  What a wonderful experience that must have been for both of you.  She will remember that for the rest of her life.
