Love the rustic look and the use of re-claimed wood

Looking good.

Word of advice that will save you the learning experience.
But the thinset add mix and a good bag of thinset for that tile or it will pop with the freeze thaw.
You need to use the add mix to make it freeze thaw stable!

So you have a pile of reclaimed wood mounted next to a fairly new house. And it looks awesome.

A friend of mine is getting me some special cement board and Tri polymer thinset stuff that is made for outdoor use. Hopefully it holds up well. Everyone is more than welcome to stop over and drink a few beers at it. I'm trying to get it finished before my class reunion after party next weekend.
