Throughout the years, this 19th century smokehouse had fallen into disrepair. The homeowner’s primary objective for this project was making the smokehouse functional once again. They also wanted to create an outdoor living area for entertaining throughout the year. These goals were accomplished by making repairs to the masonry work, replacing asphalt shingles with cedar shakes, and then constructing a new stone fireplace to aid in the function of the smokehouse. A special damper was fabricated for the fireplace to vent heat directly into the smokehouse when in use. Living and entertaining space were provided by building a covered patio addition adjacent to the smokehouse. The smokehouse has become more than just a focal point of the back yard; it has been transformed into a beautiful, multi-use outdoor dwelling to be used and enjoyed throughout the whole year.
