How to Make a Beautiful Kitchen Garden

You are lucky enough to own a small unused space in the garden, which you would love to use? Good! As well as enjoying the cool during the long summer days, you can also eat out and cook your outdoor meals, but you must make sure to fix a cooker that allows you to do this without in any way disturbing the neighborhood, taking advantage of all possible comfort.

The many shops that sell outdoor furniture, will offer you many opportunities to realize your dream but of course you will have to bear some costs, although not excessive, and moreover, outdoor kitchens are not equipped with sink and refrigerator. But you can pay much less than you can imagine, if you adapt using some old items you have placed in the attic and you can use to build a kitchenette for your evenings with friends. Here we like to share useful tips on how to make a beautiful kitchen garden.

Usually in most of the gardens lies a sink, and then you can add to it near a kitchen equipped with a gas cylinder, and if you like, you can place a small barbecue, very useful for your grilling in the company. As a shelf, use one of those old tables that you had stored in the attic, and when you have cleaned and stripped with the utmost care, give it a coat or two of varnish, letting it dry before you go over the second hand and cover it with a plastic place mat in a floral pattern, to give a cheerful touch. Above his plan, you can lean pots and various ornaments for cooking. If you have placed on the stove in the garden there is a small wall, we can install in it some wall cabinets, which will be very useful for storing crockery and various pottery.

In the unfortunate event that the guest does not have to use this support wall allowed to replace it, you can buy some furniture in sturdy resin garden, equipped with elements to keep the pots, and with a couple of drawers for storing cutlery and any tablecloths. Better still if they are equipped with strong and capacious shelves that allow to support the accessories that usually used for cooking. It is highly inadvisable, locate wood cabinets because with the sun and other weather conditions, this material could come unstuck and inevitably deteriorate. Near the kitchen, placed a table with chairs, perhaps under a gazebo or a pergola.

Try to cover the area where you eat with some towels sunscreens that protect from the heat, so that the area where you will spend your afternoons and your evenings in company, remains fresh. Of course this is the cheapest option, but if you want a better solution, though slightly more expensive, you can opt for one of those outdoor kitchens that are not afraid of any kind of weather, even in winter. You can buy it in masonry or steel: usually it is supplied with every comfort (excluding the sink and the refrigerator, you have to buy separately. Regarding the latter, the ideal is one of those garden that work using electricity, but that with the aid of ice blocks retain the same way as fresh food and drinks.

How to Pave a Porch

Plans to make a nice coating on the porch is very appreciated because it still represents the input note of your home. To pave a portico takes several precautions, as this is an area that is not internal, but at the same time is not external, but something in between, such as an introduction of the house. Ideas on how to do may be many, clearly it depends on disposable income and own taste. One aspect that you need to go look is definitely the type of coating and its invoice. This must be a non-slip coating in that, in any case it is an external, you must not run the risk of slipping due to rain; while another aspect is that it is a place for certain refined verses, where it can be furnished with a typical furniture for the outside such as chairs, sofas, coffee tables and a real table to get together in the evening with friends to a dinner. So let’s see some steps for covering a porch.

Another solution is to make a wooden porch. The wood is very appreciated for this type of work, it is natural and definitely very nice and easy to match especially when the rest of the structure is also made of wood. However beautiful does have its flaws: the maintenance. Wood is a material that requires a lot of maintenance, especially in summer, it must be sanded and repainted to avoid ruin. It is inadvisable a material for environments near the sea because salt would ruin it and therefore requires a higher maintenance.

If you want to go to a great classic and certainly very cheap, you can use the porphyry. This material is widely used for outdoor and goes quietly in traditional and modern environments, thanks to its grain a bit ‘rough and irregular shape. It will be sufficient to break the stone each time before mounting, creating a sense of order, but at the same time to completely irregular shape.

How to Build A Garden Shed

In home garden lacks an artifact where hospitalize all of our useful tools to gardening, and we often have to leave them outdoors, or to occupy spaces that are useful for other purposes. To build a garden shed, you need a good preparation mentally and excellent manual ability to create and adapt the individual pieces to their needs. So let’s see how to proceed.

Make sure you have on hand:

  • Pine boards with a thickness of 3 cm
  • Joists of 5×5 cm
  • Self-tapping screws
  • Angular L
  • Canadian type tiles

The wooden houses, compared to reinforced concrete construction, are more comfortable in every season. The wood, due to its processability and its technical characteristics, is considered the best material used in construction. In America, most of the houses built on two or three levels, are constructed entirely of wood or assembled beams, sealed with plaster panels. In our country, there is no real culture of wooden home, intended as a principal residence. Numerous are the wooden houses, like the garden cottages available for wood or tools or do dressing room, in the presence of a swimming pool.

The first thing to do is to prepare the necessary material, in this case for a small house of about 10 square meters. The first work to be done is the formation of the base: it must be absolutely flat and perpendicular. It must then cut five joists from 5×5 cm of the expected length, lay them on the ground, at a distance of 50 cm from each. Subsequently, the boards resting on the beams, previously cut to measure, making sure that the tongue-female fits together, then secure them with the self-tapping screws, continuing until completion of the entire base.

Take now the other four pallets, of the type used for the construction of the base, fixing one for each corner of the base, using the angle iron to L. At this point, to build the walls, you will have to cut to size the tables, on a obsolete other, using the male and groove, and attach to the four beams, leaving aside for the moment the wall dedicated to the door.

Finished to prepare the walls, you will have to build the roof, using always the joists from 5×5 cm, which will locate on the top of the walls of the four beams, fixing them with the use of the angle in L, doing so in order to pass on part of the weight of the roof on the walls. At this point, the fixed tables, one beside the other, until completion of the roof, making them protrude, for each side of the house, so that in case of rain the water drains away.

Now roll out on the roof tiles, starting from the side of the roof slope, fixing them with the specific nails, at the point where the next tile will cover the fixing nail, up to the highest point of the roof. Now we need to build the gate. Put in four earth joists, forming a rectangle, fixate above the boards, with the help of self-tapping screws. Completed the construction of the port, it must be fastened to the structure, using simple metal hinges. The fact remains that only finishing as the last step. The most appropriate choice for a good finish, is to pass three coats of primer and then a coat of transparent flatting, to give a nice touch of gloss to the lodge finally over.

Comfort Conditioning Advises Their Customers to Beat the Heat With an AC Check


(Apache Junction, AZ)– It’s that time again when homeowners begin to crank up their air conditioners and hope they have survived the winter and will provide them with cooling relief. Unfortunately, systems sometimes begin to fail when they are first turned on for the season, especially if they have not been properly maintained. Comfort Conditioning wants to help all of their customers stay cool this summer by offering a $59 special for all AC Tune-ups. Now is the time to seek these services before systems are needed on a daily basis.

Mark Schilling, owner of Comfort Conditioning, recently spoke on the importance of seasonal maintenance services for AC systems. “A lot of us forget the burden of service our systems face each summer and we don’t realize they need to be maintained so they can work at their prime. You wouldn’t drive a car without putting oil in it but many of us forget to take care of our AC motor and its components. We wanted to offer the community a true deal which is why we are only charging $59 for a full tune-up.”

AC tune-ups are important for keeping a system running properly. With the many moving parts in a system, it stands to reason wear and tear can occur if proper measures of protection are not taken. A tune-up includes checking all of the connections, lubricating the moving parts, and checking coolant levels. A full inspection involves checking 36 points on an AC system to ensure it will work properly and safely.

“We want to help our customers avoid a service call during the heat of summer by providing them with a necessary service at an affordable price. Ideally, tune-ups should be done in early spring but customers who have not yet had their system checked are urged to do so anytime. We are here to help our customers prolong the life of their system and keep them cool,” says Schilling.

With routine maintenance, AC systems will work more efficiently at keeping a home cool all summer long. This will save homeowners money on cooling costs and prevent the expense of breakdowns.
