BBQ Beast

What a day! I was sure our energy wouldn't last that long, after all we've been working on the house for a week and a half. So today we brought most of the furniture back inside, glued little felt pads under the furniture's feet, installed the drapes, installed a milkglass rod in the kitchen and a new tp dispenser in the bathroom. We also cleaned a junk closet; funny how crap just seems to reproduce!

And I built the BBQ that we bought last week @ Zellers. I would be so thrilled if it became a Target store.... But we'll have to wait 'till 2013.
Ok back to the BBQ. It stayed a couple of days in the car, because it was too heavy to move....Wednesday we put it outside in the box. It has been raining since, all day everyday ; so this afternoon when I came to put it together, the box litterally melted!

All in all it took me 2 hours to build it. I confess to a lot of swearing! It came with all the tools necessary except a hammer, a pack of smokes and some liquor! It was hot and muggy and I was sweating like an animal, but I didn't let this get the best of me, no siree bob!

Here it is, IT IS HUGE by our standard and even our biggest cover won't fit it!

 To celebrate and break it in I grilled some pork chops. They were juicy and delicious and perfectly cooked.


Tomorrow I hope to install some of the new ceilling lights....I'm crossing my fingers!

Hey, congrats on the new BBQ Beast! I admire the fact that you put it together yourself. Kudos!

It feels nice when you can finally chalk off another home improvement project, doesn't it?

congrats on the assembly! They appently make them easier to assemble all the time. I'm not sure if I believe that. Hubby and 7yo put our new one together. Having a kid helping cut down on the swearing I think :)

My Zellers is becoming a Target!!! The only drawback will be the 6-9 months for the reno, which will mean the only alternative will be Superstore. ugh!
