Welcome to week two of our guest blog series! If you are new to this series, in August, ICC Floors will be featuring a guest blog series from our very own, Blake Powell. In this series, Blake Powell tackled an extraordinary DIY project, where he built a custom outdoor bar that features a big green egg smoker. He is here to share with you what he learned and show you how you can do it yourself. No professional experience is required! Let’s take a look at part two! How he built the structure:
“In this part of the series, we are going to focus on how I built the actual structure of the bar. I previously mentioned it in the last post, but I want to reiterate the fact that this bar was built around my green egg smoker. I was in search of a bar that could entertain guests, hold trays of food, and house my green egg smoker. Instead of buying something generic, I decided to build the construct for myself to fit my needs. You will find that this process is an easy do-it-yourself project. Plus, you can find the materials at ICC Floors.”
Schluter®-KERDI-FIX is a waterproofing membrane that makes an air-tight sealing system to avoid leaks and the potential of mold/mildew growth.
Pro-Tip: I recommend either placing your posts in before setting up the structure or better yet, pour a concrete slab for your bar structure to sit on.
