Smoking shack!

Postby Slickheadhunter » Sun Sep 18, 2011 11:24 pm

I have been wanting a place to smoke outside and this past summer I've been in a screen house,which was very nice,but the cold commeth.
I saw somewhere on the web where this guy set up a shed as a smoking room,which the Wife caught wind of. She told me this morning it was time to get something, so I dont have to freeze another winter sitting in the driveway in temps anywhere from -15 to 30 degrees F. Sitting there in a wool coat with fur hat,bulky gloves,Ice fishing boots and a blanket for 2 to 3 hours,talk about a sight to see!
So today I went to this shed place and ordered an 8x8 shed with one single door and one window with screen,also a 4x8 loft area for storage. I will use it as is this winter and will insulate and finish the walls with tongue and groove pine I had left over from my camp construction.I have a window fan that will work nicely as ventilation and an electric heater for heat.
This is going to be like a five star hotel.I will post pics when it is built(6 week delivery time) Around the end of October.

Nice! You know, we must have pictures!

Will the loft be the cellar?

Kats, thats a good Idea! I was going to do that until I remembered that in the summer it would be very hot in there. In the winter the tobacco would freeze solid. I did pass an Idea past my Wife about getting one of those combination air conditioners/heaters that you can mount on the wall and keep it at a constant 6o degrees F or so.Then it would be perfect.

Thank you Chuck!

I would love one of those in my own little shed to smoke in. That's living the good life there...a pot on top for tea, a good book, man's best friend, and a few bowls! Yep, fine living indeed.

The picture of the stove reminds me of a similar project I've intended to undertake for quite some time now. My house happens to have a three-season porch, and I acquired a cylinder stove for free a couple years ago. I'm thinking that the room could easily be converted into a smoking paradise, but city code being what it is, I could just about buy a whole shed for what it would cost to install the stove legally. However, I'm certain I could drastically improve my enjoyment of smoking during cold Minnesota winters.

I, too, would love to see pictures of the shack when it's complete. It sounds magnificent.

Just one more way 'they' are taking away our freedoms - and taking our money as well - one incremental step at a time. BASTARDS! :twisted:

I'm pretty sure I've got a better chance of fighting "them" and winning... than fighting one of "them" and winning ! :lol:

So there I am last night smoking my 302 full of Dark Flake sitting in a screen tent with a blanket, coat and hat! A balmy 20degrees F. and there I was....shivering! LOL. This coming week my shed will be built,I can hardly wait to sit by a heater with just a light sweatshirt on my back.

Semi warm is correct! This spring I'm insulating it and covering the walls with the left over tongue and groove from my camp. With the window fan running on low and the electric heater on should prove comfortable compared to sitting on a chair in my front yard.Just being out of the wind will be a huge help.
