Ya big Stud.

Today was stud day.  Now that all of the track is laid, it was time to take this thing vertical.  The grill will  be right where the OU beer is is sitting.  I don’t really want to think too much about how to build that box for the grill just yet.  So it was beer 30 and time to take a step back and admire.

So after much math and re-math and drawing and re-drawing, I finally guess that the studs for the counter tops need to be 35″ and the studs for the bar top and grill back splash should be 42″.  At some point in the near future I need to find bar stools to fit a 43″ bar.  And yes, as my construction friends would say, “That summa bitch is dead nuts level.”

After 3 hours of measuring out and hand cutting all of these studs, I am going to call it a day.  If the weather holds tomorrow, I might have the framing done, but probably not for a few more days.  Check back and see.
