My entry for the Garden bling contest:
We normally store our grill in our garden shed during the winter, but we have quite a bit of garden furniture to store there too, and the grill takes up quite a lot of space so I suggested that I could build a shed for it on the terrace. After thinking it over I almost immediately backed off the idea thinking about all the running around it would take to get all the materials, roofing etc., but my wife liked the idea and so it came to be. A familiar Story?
Just for the record, we always set up for grilling away from the side of the house for safety’s sake.
I wanted the shed to sit on the terrace in the same place as we normally have it in the summer. I tried to make it fit between the window frame on the right and the roof drain pipe on the left, but after putting the outside molding on the corners it didn’t quite make it, so I couldn’t have it tight against the wall as I wished. No matter, there is no other practical place for it to be, so it just sits out a couple of inches from the wall. I would have liked the shed to be less wide, but the tables on the grill don’t fold down ( how smart is that?) so I was forced to build it in this size. see below
As you can see from this photo our cat loves attention if not the grill house. I just wanted to show you how the shed roof color matches our roof tiles. see below
The frame work and doors are all mortise and tenon and the moldings are cut from from 2×4′s. If you are interested in more details you can read the blog I did on the construction of it here
Thanks for reading. I hope you like it.
