Just finished building my shack and just put the BBQs in. Any thoughts or feedback appreciated.

Wood has been covered with Flame Retardant solution to help prevent the obvious danger of the thing catching fire! 😅 Roof is clear corrugated roofing and got protection mats under both the Offset and the Weber to help protect the floor base. Got weatherproof Vinyl "curtains" for the side and front to help with air flow and to open the place up a bit. 

Future plans include building some worktops to make it easier for prepping and serving as well as better storage for things like the charcoal and gadgets. No power supply to the shack as I have no idea how to install a power line and just had the slabs laid recently.

I've done a test run with the weber and that went great but I am worried about the ash from the firebox on the offset. Don't know if there is more that can be done to catch as much of the falling ash as possible to prevent the shack wood burning

What about a metal tray to catch any ash that falls out when opening the fire box door????  just my 2 cents?🤔

I've got a metal bucket but yeah that's still a bit below the door. Are you thinking like having a tray that is almost attached to the bottom of the firebox so there is no gap between the end of the door opening and the tray? Think this would be a good idea and i can have the bucket below for the overflow. Use the tray as a sort of "slide" to help ensure the coals either sit in the tray or slide into the bucket with water in the bottom to instantly cool them

Update: I have purchased some HardieBacker concrete boards from B&Q that are fire proof and are quite light/think considering they are concrete. Going to install these on the wood flooring below the firebox(es) so any falling coals won't burn the wood floor
