Aaaand I’ve been a nastily lazy person lately. Let’s see how much I’ll be able to accomplish… 🙂
Learning by doing. Now that it’s ready I discovered that, in reality, it may be way too small for my needs. After checking the dimensions with the Amazon Grill I found on the internet: The measurements do match, but that thing is really a bit tiny for two persons wanting to eat…
The “coal in a flowerpot”-idea really didn’t work at all, so here’s what what I came up with instead last weekend:
I tried it with a 3-cm-vermiculite board from the hardware store and some heat-proof cement. Here’s the outcome – it still has to cure a little (according to the package) and I’m curious how it’ll work out. (See the other parts of the process if you like: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV)
Lately, we removed a part of the wall separating the kitchen from the living room, creating a counter. Thus a normal living room door would always have stood in the way, so we decided to put in a sliding door instead. It’s “Barn-Door” style and, well, it is really barn-ish looking:
I finally finished the smoker for the northern germany refuge that I was longing for for so long! It’s design is loosely based on the “munich smoker” at home (see series parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and in action), but with a few modifications, adjustments and additions. But first, some images:
It was really not a pretty sight when you came home and the first thing you saw were three dirty trashcans in front of the house. So we grabbed all the remaining pallets from the garden and turned them into a screen to cover the trash. It’s a simple construction made from five regular euro pallets (in diffenerent states of decay 🙂 ) screwed together with simple metal brackets.
It’s not completely done yet, since we plan to additionally cover it with a wicker fence from the hardware store, but it is already an improvement.

I’m (somewhat) social too!
