Over the last several years I’ve been trying to figure out how to reconfigure my house so that I still have some privacy, but am also able to serve the needs of guests who come to stay in the wagon stations or camp out in the wash on the west side of A-Z West. Eventually, when I have a little more cash, the long term plan is to pipe water down to the parcel and build a kitchen and showers down there – but in the meantime I’ve been working on an outdoor kitchen next to the house so that people can use whenever they want. TK Smith, fabricator extroidinare, came up with this deluxe design for my kitchen. I had wanted horizontal redwood siding, but was worried about wood not holding up on the south side of the house, which gets blasted with sun. TK came up with the horizontal metal design – that will eventually rust to match the rest of my house. two weeks ago while I was traveling back east he put the final touches on the kitchen – amazing!
