John, got a question Did you put those border timbers directly on the ground or on top of gravel and fill it in? I'm thinking about making a gravel area with a covered carport. The wood would be treated but do I need anything under the wood?

Landscape timbers sit on the weed fabric underneath.
They are pegged into the ground with 2’ sections of #3 rebar and then gravel put in

Thank you. That's what I was thinking especially with the weed cloth but wasn't sure. Your pit looks amazing.

That looks amazing and you'll be having lots of great times there - my only question is: where are the speakers gonna be? Or will it be one of those bluetooth type deals?

Here we are almost a month later.

Mrs Porkalot has now out fitted the area with comfy seating and an eating area.









I think it’s gonna work great!

The BBQ spot is looking really good. Your use of gravel has begun to steer me towards that for the fire pit/ open grill area at our new pad here in Knoxville. What’s your plan for the new smoker placement?

I like the gravel for several reasons, first and foremost is the fact its fireproof. Grease spills mean a lot less too

New smoker will go right in front, with the back to the sign
