Looks like something I would like to build.......if I was about 25 years younger.

That looks great.

That is absolutely beautiful...If you personally built it,  you are a great stone mason.


Have fun with it!

Built a whole bunch of it. Took 2 1/2 months to complete.Hand picked all of the stones from my crick here in the holler.Gable ends and door are made of 120 yr. old oak barnwood.Ran the doorboards thru a planer and jointer and will put a slightly darker protective stain on it when the weather warms up a bit. Having a local blacksmith hand forge hinges, door pull and handle. will let it all rust so it looks like it has been in existence 100 years.That was my intention all along and I hope it looks that way to others.It was a real ball buster at times,but I would do it again in a nanosecond!

Very traditional. I spent 18 years in the architectural stone business.

Stick- I'm located waaay back in the holler in N. Central Kentucky. I built a rustic,Adirondack style building out of live-edge oak and tulip poplar boards about 16 years ago that is my wood house.I keep a bunch of various hardwoods in there-Red oak,hickory,apple,maple,cherry,grape vine,etc. Would sure like to score some alder logs and limbs for my fish smokes in the future! Maybe a road trip is in my plans!Never know with me!HA. Basically a cold smokehouse now with the fire box downhill about 8 feet. Fire brick lined with a heavy metal confinement lid . It draws phenominally well. Can get it to hold 70-80 degrees cwith no problem. Can also get it up much hotter. I'm sure I'll experiment with some hot smoking down the road-just don't want to burn the sum bit%% down quite yet!

I can see a LOT of great stuff coming from that smokehouse!


Once you add on the extras you're talking about, it will look like it's been there for decades!


Great work!!!
