I will assume the breakfast nook is on our left. 1st. 1 inch bull nose tile then next 12 3/8 inches is 4 tiles you can multiply how many to cover behind the stove and the remainder of the wall. Cut pieces in the corner For simplicity your cuts should leave a tile 1 inch or larger. Note: Other tile sizes will work 6x6 are not really 6 inches that's why we measure. But each change here makes a difference in the final look. 4x by 4's can make a long wall look busy with grout seams. Choose wisely. Most people use graph paper to lay out where all the tile go. This is especially important if you plan a decorative tile over the stove in that larger space before the hood.
One plastic 50 gallon barrel. I located three on Craigslist and paid $24 for all three, so $8. Four three inch rigid-caster wheels. Harbor Freight has them for $3 each, so $12 for these. Treated wood, although I used 2X6's, treated deck wood would work just as well,$20. Paint for the barrel, $4.25. Paint for the platform,$7.50. Lag bolts and washers to mount the rigid casters $4.80. Two 2" PVC vent pipes cut from a ten foot length of pipe, $5. Four NIBCO 1 1/2 In. PVC DWV Trap Adapter Spigot x Slip Joints,$8. Window hardware: 8"continuous hinge and three cabinet latches, $9. The total is $78.55. Of course any of these materials you happen to have on hand will decrease your cost:
All good composters have a good vent system. You want air to circulate throughout your compost, but you don't want to let bugs in with the air. My barrel already had two holes in the top so I cut two 2" holes in the bottom that lined up with them. I then cut two lengths of 2" PVC pipe long enough to stick out of the barrel about 1 ½" top and bottom and then drilled several ½" holes in both pipes along the length that will be inside the barrel. After inserting the vent pipes in the barrel I then glued the Nibco fittings on the ends. This fitting has a screw-on cap that would have been used as a pressure fitting for a slip joint. Just unscrewed these caps and cut out a piece of screen cloth to fit inside them. Screw the caps on to the pipes then use some putty to fill any gaps between the pipes and the holes you had cut in the barrel. Find a good place set up, place the barrel on its platform and start throwing in those table scraps and grass clippings. It would be a good idea to keep the compost level inside the barrel just below the vent pipes so that rotating the barrel won't be too much of a task.
If you have ever seen a spray paint artist performing or on YouTube and wanted to try it, you can start out with an air-brush and water based acrylics instead. Spray paint cans can get very expensive and you will need much more protection and care to use them as they contain solvents. Start out with water based acrylics and an air-brush so you can learn to do spray paint art the safe and easy way.
I am somewhat embarrassed to show my efforts so far but I will in a separate post as I hone my skills. But for now I will do a assessment of this technique. So let me start with the pros of arc welding. One is it is less expensive for equipment than MIG and TIG welding. Secondly, the heat is instantaneous and would be excellent for tack welding armatures and metal furniture that you can finish with oxyacetylene. Thirdly, because you are not warming up the work with a flame, the heat is highly focused and warpage is greatly reduced. Finally, this particular welder I have is very light weight and there are no gas gauges to watch over.
Whatever the situation, storage sheds of appropriate size and design can make your life, business, hobby or passion a more enjoyable and smother event. As an artist and carpenter myself I tend to look at design and function as integral factors when creating any structure. Therefore, let me say that choosing a design that will be both pleasing to your eye and suit all of your needs is an important aspect of your shed plans. Location on the site and its direction in relation to other structures, the sun, trees and even paths or driveways can make the design and or function more or less compatible with all.
