A boring deck or a cool outdoor kitchen?

Imgur user RogerBennett55 was getting no use out of the patio in his backyard, so a change had to be made. He decided that eating and drinking were a few of his favorite pastimes and so that became the genesis for building an outdoor kitchen of his own. Brilliant.

After watching a few online tutorials and doing some research on how to design his own kitchen he began to build his dream. And only several weeks of work later he did just that.

In his own words, this is exactly how he pulled it off…

Building out the U frame. Bar and footrest attached.

Starting the Durock installation 

Supports for grill and framing for doors.

And more Durock

Drop in ice chest cutout and door framed

Here’s to hoping the grill fits…fingers crossed. Durock nearly done…just need to cutout spot for the Big Green Egg grill in corner. 

Grill fits!! Nearly–a little adjustment here or there was needed, but nothing major!

Starting the Granite tile

Starting on tile molding

Bar top done…3 straight hours of cutting 12″ x 12″ tile to create the diamond pattern w/ borders…

Used angle grinder to cut the hole for the Green Egg…worked great…

The grill is in!!! Can cook again. Backsplash started.

Stuccoed and painted…

Ice Chest is in!

 

The Finished Product!
