The design for John Dobkins has a full page of drawings dedicated to the out door barbecue. It was never built, but I must admit have toyed with the idea of having it built.
I will need to dig out the drawings to post the page on the barbecue here.

Years ago Mike and Palli, Holubar and I visited the home and grounds before you purchased it. We were in total agreement that the house was unique and also it was going to take a total commitment on the new owners part to bring it around. You and your family should be proud of what you accomplished ...

Good work Dan. I replaced one door screen and one casement screen 18 years ago, and only now are they drastically changing color and looking more like the original screens installed in 1954. They must have had a coating on them from the time they were manufactured. You should feel good knowing that ...

John,

Did you document, with pictures, the scoring on the module lines?
Sure would have liked to have seen the process of the scoring...

How long do you let the concrete mat dry before applying the sealer?

In one of your pics I counted 6 men working. How many in total were there?

It's not like you can slip that chair under your coat, and and out the door.

Guess they will need a guard in the lobby from now on.

Dan, Christine, this project is the ultimate in tender loving care.
Time to take some time off, kick back and enjoy.
Sorry we could not attend the conference this year, we will need to get together soon. Would love to hear in more detail about all the work performed at Sweeton.
