You all took me on a journey putting this photo thread together, thanks.
My shelter you can tell was in need of some TCL. New roof and siding and a couple of pieces plywood in the wood shop. The framework was all solid but one end rafter that was rebuilt.The newly closed in area is my new kitchen. Nothing fancy here but it is easily cooled and heated. Thanks for looking Barry

Mighty swanky "shack" there!

12-08-2017, 09:11 PM
Wow, that’s awesome!

12-08-2017, 09:16 PM
Nice setup! I could sit on that porch and watch a smoker all day long.

12-08-2017, 09:22 PM
Great setup. Thanks for sharing

Thanks, we are really enjoying the covered patio. We sit out there quite a bit even without the Shirley fired up. Having hot water and the refrigerator close to the cook is great. I am a very lucky man in deed. Old man winter has come to Corapeake so we are now spending our time in the "Shack".

12-08-2017, 09:30 PM
Ok...are you looking for tenants??

Farking sweet space, Man!

Wait a tic...y'all growing Christmas Trees, too?!!

Not Christmas trees. They are loblolly pines. We sat in the middle of a big field, decided to block our view of the neighbors. I am liking the trees more every day the taller they get. Barry

That's awesome.

12-08-2017, 10:03 PM
Looking great!

12-08-2017, 10:19 PM
That is one sweet set up! You could live in there...or was that the plan for when you piss your wife off?!? Must happen a lot....I need some place like this too!

12-08-2017, 10:22 PM
Awesome,very nice smoke shack.:clap:

Gotta say that’s the most impressive smoke shack I’ve ever seen! Mighty fine Sir

12-09-2017, 09:34 AM
Beyond awesome.

Something along those lines is part of my retirement plan one day. A little land and plenty of room to build my ultimate BBQ smoking area.

12-09-2017, 10:00 AM
Wow. What a set up. Beautiful land. Do you have deer in you place? I have a bow and know how to use it if you need some deer management. Lol.

12-09-2017, 10:01 AM
I need to move in to that shack. I can pay rent!

12-09-2017, 10:10 AM
If you guys ever want to road trip Nellie wants to cover the patio. Great job on the smoke shack.

12-09-2017, 10:30 AM
Oh Yeah..... in my dreams!

12-09-2017, 10:32 AM
Very nice!

Our original plans were to replace the roof and enclose the back storage area. After we got started it seemed necessary to take down the aluminum siding and replace it. The extended patio area was planned and has been much enjoyed.The inside enclosed room expanded to wiring, plumbing, a source of heat and a source of cooling. Then of course I wanted hot water for cleaning utensils, pans etc. Thus some cabinets and counter space for work and storage. I thought long and hard about maybe a restroom but I opted out, if I have a big gathering I will rent porta pottys.Thanks for all the kind replays, Barry

12-09-2017, 01:10 PM
Very nice setup!!! I hope to have something like that some day!!

12-09-2017, 01:15 PM
Nice work there and definitely a beautiful setting.

12-09-2017, 03:16 PM
Man thats nice.

12-09-2017, 03:22 PM
This is a Smoke Shack! What you have there is a beautiful Smoke HOUSE. Congrats. Lots of enjoyable times to come!

12-09-2017, 03:32 PM
Barry. That's nicer than the inside of my house, bigger as well:thumb:

Thanks again everyone. We usually have thanksgiving at our house, mostly because my wife's parents are pretty old and they do not travel well. In the house some of us would be in the dinning room, kitchen, living room. It was so easy this year with all of us in the same room catching up on life's events.

12-11-2017, 02:41 PM
Very very cool! I’m ready to move in if you need a tenant. Probably not though, huh. That’s the way to do it though. Wonderful job.

12-11-2017, 03:51 PM
Great place to rent out to vacationers or in-laws. Really nice.

12-11-2017, 04:01 PM
Very nice Barry...... great special place u got there buddy

It was a lot of fun actually to show the old shop and shed some tlc. I am in north east NC about an hour from the Atlantic Ocean. If any of your travels bring you to this part of the world stop by, you're welcome at my fire anytime. There is nothing I enjoy more than tending a fire and hanging out with friends. Barry

You are living my dream, my friend. Nice setup and I can only hope for something similar one day.
