Derek: Here’s a little surprise for you. The stone we’re working with comes in kit.
Dean: Oh, speaking of surprises I have one for you.
Derek: Oh yeah?
Dean: Butch is working with those.
Derek: Brother Butch?
Derek: He’s a sportscaster.
Dean: Yeah, he misses the stone thing. He wants to get back into it.
Derek: No, he’s going to get bossy and take over.
Dean: Come on, we’re not kids anymore. We have matured.
Derek: Oh yeah, we’ve matured. I have no problem with my brother.
Dean: Listen, we are family.
Derek: Oh yeah.
Dean: Like this.
Derek: And I just can't work with my brother.
Dean: Don’t worry about that, I’ve been taking care of. Hey, Butch.
Butch: You know what’s happening?
Derek: Hey Butch, so we’re working together.
Butch: I excited about that. It’s good to get back into it.
Butch: What are you doing?
Derek: You know, I’ve been thinking about this idea a lot. I think we should do our refrigerator here.
Butch: What kind of fridge?
Derek: Grill, somewhere about here.
Derek: And you know what, what about like a sitting area to the right?
Butch: Sitting area, no you got it all wrong okay. We’re going to do a fridge here. We’re going to do a grill here.
Butch: We’re going to do a sitting area bar here all the near by beautiful stone with the grill and blue stone caps.
Dean: That is brilliant.
Butch: Of course it’s brilliant. I thought of it. All right boys I got to go, get started would you, I’ll be back.
Dean: And then who’s going to work with it?
Derek: That is how he works.
Dean: I don’t remember that.
Derek: Oh, I remember it. I remember a lot of things.
Dean: Do you think I was too busy eating?
Dean: I’m shuffling. We need some big hair removers.
Derek: When you order a kit from the new world stone works, they’ll deliver it right to your home. It usually comes on two or three pallets so make sure you have a spot close to your project to set them on.
Dean: Our outdoor kitchen has just been delivered.
Derek: And as you can tell all the stones at free cut, numbered and lettered for you. See this stone by number
Dean: And it also comes with this CAD here.
Derek: You don’t even know what a CAD is?
Dean: Computer edit design.
Derek: Well the CAD basically keeps you from wasting stone.
Dean: The great thing about this company is when you get your outdoor kitchen. You also get your very own outhouse.
Derek: No, it’s a template and a template is a life size version of what is already on your CAD.
Dean: Oh, so you’re telling me whatever in my head they bring to reality.
Derek: Yeah and that’s a scary thought. Lay down your template and trace it up.
Dean: The template is designed for your individual project. You determine the size and dimensions in another information you sent to new world stone works. Where your kit is custom made. We already have a gas line installed as part of our project.
Derek: Gas line, be careful, danger.
Dean: With the template outline trace, you need to dig down for the footing. In our case we have to cut through the stone pebbles first. So, Derek uses a grinder with a diamond blade to scorn outline. After prying out the old pebbles, we cut a deeper line and break the stone with the stone hammer.
The next step is to dig the footing and we’re going to dig down about six inches and of course we’re going to be very careful using our pointy shovel around the gas line.
Derek: I haven’t seen Butch in a while.
Dean: Hey, he said he’d be here. Come on this is supposed to be fun. We are family here.
Derek: Why you always defending him?
Dean: Because you need a leader. Butch is the older cousin all the brother. He’s our leader.
Derek: He’s our leader, alright, yeah.
Dean: It is kind a hard up.
Derek: You know not everything goes smooth but don’t get discourage. There’s always a challenge in each project and our challenge here is that we have to build a little wooden form for our concrete footing. So we got some one inch strapping. We made some sticks out of the same material and we’re going to put it here to hold that concrete back. Take some favors, put it up against to support. Also take you a little sticks here and nails them in and I'm going to show it up.
