Hear about how this outdoor kitchen was constructed using cinder blocks, cast concrete countertops and a faux stone veneer.
When using brick, you will be able to layout your kitchen any way you like and include as few, or as many, appliances and accessories as you wish.
Once the backer board is attached to the frame, it can be faced with decorative concrete panels, stucco, stone, tile, or a brick veneer.
Steel frame kits can be used to create both simple and elaborate outdoor kitchens, plus everything in between. While each outdoor kitchen is unique, the construction process is relatively uniform whether it's built out of wood or block or even a framework kit. Grading: Grading a landscape to drain is step one of the construction process that may prove the most important.
Utilities: Installation of utilities is the most challenging of all outdoor kitchen construction features because they may require specialty subcontractors for electric and plumbing needed by many of the kitchen features such as a sink, which requires hot water and a sewer drain. Overhead structure: If there's a shade arbor or a roofed portico to protect the kitchen and its components, significant footings must be installed early on. Paving: Many outdoor kitchen systems that offer prefabricated units are installed upon existing paving.
Units: The installation of the kitchen units whether a single island or a three sided series will vary in time depending on how elaborate the design.
Countertops: This stage of the process may require granite countertops or tile or even Corian.
Lighting and fans: One of the final steps is the installation of lighting fixtures and overhead fans. This weekend, we finally got started on building the outdoor kitchen we’ve been dreaming of for 3 years. When we planned out our wood plank stamped concrete patio, we knew that we wanted to add a caddy cornered type of built-in grill. We assembled the frame this weekend, so we finally got to see how it was all going to work out!
They spent the whole weekend just getting the frame up due to confusing directions and a whole lot of parts. The good thing was that a) whenever Mike had a question he could ask my brother, who had built one of these in a different shape a few years ago and b) BBQ Coach responded so quickly to Mike’s emails that it was practically real-time support. We finally brought out our patio furniture and though the island looks huge, it really works well with the size of the patio.
Up next we have to decide how thick of a counter top we’re adding to finish out the frame. We were anxious to get the sealer on because we knew it would change the color of the concrete, but in these pictures, it was still wet. Some areas were still very obviously wet, like the area where our future outdoor kitchen will be. We’re thinking of maybe adding a step in the center of the patio, leading onto the grass. We plan on filling each curved side up with mulch and some landscaping for now, so we’ll see how that looks before deciding on the step(s). Well after talking with our concrete buddy, we decided the wood plank stamp wouldn’t look great on the walkway.
Thursday was equally as beautiful, so it felt like some sort of crime to spend my evening hours indoors on my computer.
Anyway, the nice weather gave us an opportunity to finally get out to the backyard to figure out what to do with our patio.
In the end, we were pleasantly surprised with the price given all of the extra square footage we added with the walkway. Wait, you’re wondering why I’m ignoring the fact that our nicely stacked wood piles were demolished during a windy snowstorm?
I’m hoping we find a creative contractor that can do better than my pathetically planned out rectangle.
I think this will still be too big, considering the mass amount of dead space in the center, but hopefully this is just a jumping off point. Transforming your home's exterior and attracting neighbors, passersby and potential buyers can be as simple as replacing an old, dented front door with a beautiful entry door that includes designer glass. Between the steel skins, a foam core provides good quality insulating value and a firm base for the steel. Fiberglass doors consist of a sheet of molded fiberglass and a frame that is essentially the same as that of a steel door.

Fiberglass doors can be stained or painted in most of the same colors as wood doors, and design styles mimic those of traditional doors crafted from wood.
The most traditional material for entrance doors, and still one of the most popular, is wood.
What really makes doors elegant and gives them superior curb appeal is the inclusion of designer glass.

There are a variety of options when it comes to how the structure, or base, of an outdoor kitchen will be built. You will be able to configure your kitchen any way you like and include as few, or as many, appliances and accessories as you wish.
Building an outdoor kitchen out of brick requires high-level masonry skills, so if you don't have considerable experience building with bricks and mortar, you should hire a contractor who does. If choosing to build a wood-framed base you should use pressure-treated pine because it will hold up better under the extreme heat omitted by the grill and will be less likely to rot.
Just like concrete block and brick, wood-frame construction gives you complete customization options.
My brother and sister-in-law built their own grill and bar area when they moved into their house about 5 years ago and used BBQ Coach. I admittedly did zero work on this, since I was with Easton all weekend while Mike and our friend Steve worked away.
Who tackles a giant project two weeks before hosting a large first birthday party and having out of town guests?
I finished up a final paper and presentation last night, while Mike was in San Francisco attending the SF MusicTech Summit for his gig with SongMeanings. Last week they also came to put the cuts in the concrete where they expected it to crack naturally. The far side of the patio is 8 inches above ground, so it will be a nice entrance to the open space. I also know that the sealer wasn’t dry when I saw it and it did look darker than it did yesterday. I emailed Target (since I checked everyday, for 8 straight days) and they have no clue when it will be back in. We told him from the outset that we wanted some sort of creative design that we could not come up with. He warned us that something too too dark would burn the heck out of bare feet in the summer. Sometimes we forget that our property extends into the tree line and that we’ll still have plenty of land for the future. I once climbed back there to get an idea of how much land was there and it was not a fun trip. I love being outside when it’s nice out and sitting on the porch by myself got old quick last year. Now, Mike and I can almost guarantee that this pattern and color will be the most expensive stamped concrete option in the history of the world… we just have that sort of luck.
We’re hoping to actually go outside to the backyard (what a novel concept!) to get an idea of how large we want this thing. Changing entrance doors is one of the least expensive home renovations, so why not make the best impression possible?
Unlike steel doors, fiberglass doors do not warp or dent, but they are more expensive than steel.
Because of their popularity, wood doors come in the widest choice of designs--from Colonial to the retro look of the 1950s, to today's contemporary designs. They must be stained and sealed, or painted periodically to resist damage from exposure to water and intense sun. Often referred to as leaded glass because it's held together by lead "came," the glass comes in various textures, colors and degrees of opacity. He's worked closely with window design engineers in testing, design, and building code interpretation.
The materials selected for an outdoor kitchen must be able to withstand high temperatures as well as a variety of weather conditions. Building an outdoor kitchen out of concrete block requires masonry skills, so hire an experienced contractor to do the job. In order to protect the wood frame from heat and water, it should be covered with cement backer board, both on the inside and outside of the structure. Cement backer board is used to skin the structure and then the walls can be stuccoed, stone-clad or tiled.

At last update, the patio was anxiously awaiting a sealer. I thought I was going crazy about the color, but just a tad darker would be wonderful ??  I thought I was looking at the (not yet dry) finished product, but now I have to wait until tomorrow! I never got a chance to thank everyone for the support you gave me after the post I wrote about our kitties Mac and Sunny last week. It looked quite like icing a cake ?? I missed the entire stamping process though ?? I was dying to see that! Since that size seemed reasonable for a sitting area (and we were clueless about size) we thought 2 of those areas would suit our needs. He said he wouldn’t start jobs until the first week in April so hopefully we will have a patio soon!
I have high hopes of a pool with a waterfall and slide, but I know that’s not likely to happen.
We had an appointment with the concrete man for Saturday, but we had to cancel it because we forgot we had other plans. A block of 6- to 7-inch-by-12- to 14-inch wood is added in the area of the lock and deadbolt to give it strength. Prefabricated outdoor kitchen kits can be purchased if you wish to avoid detailed construction. Decorative concrete panels, stucco, tile, and stone are all suitable facing materials for an outdoor kitchen constructed with concrete block.
Be aware that there is still some concern over fire safety, even with the backer board in place. The frames come in a variety of configurations and can support a range of appliances and accessories. You basically choose the shape you want, along with how many appliance cut outs, and they send you the parts. Mike got a call this morning (while in Cali) informing him that the concrete company was stopping by today to put the sealer on. As excited we were for the patio, having the doorbell ring that early and having to move our cars out of the driveway was not fun. I like working with people who can bounce ideas back and forth and in the end can out think me. I’ve seen some different things done with planters and whatnot that peaked my interest in outdoor space a liiiitle, but for now I was settling for just a start.
I have a love for wood that is dark and rustic, so to be able to have the warmth of a deck combined with the ease of concrete?
So hopefully, concrete man will come soon with tons of ideas, thoughts on maximizing our space and a cheap price!
An added benefit is that you will not need to face a kitchen built from bricks, it will already have a beautiful finish.
When we were ready to pour our patio 2 years ago, we went on the site and chose the New Yorker BBQ Island. In between work and picking up Mike from the airport, I managed to squeeze some time in for photos. Because of the wood plank pattern we chose, the cuts mostly follow the lines like this one below. But he confidently told me that he had a client do it and he thought the same thing, but the result was great. As much as I have ideas of my own and know what I want, I always look forward to suggestions and things I haven’t thought of. Concrete guy measured, then gave us a book of patterns and colors to chose from while he wrote up an estimate.
Then we decided that we didn’t want to eat up too much of our yard and want to keep our future options open.
So we were thinking we’d go with a fieldstone or cobblestone pattern to compliment our house, though neither option really overwhelmed me with excitement. He reassured me by saying that people mix pavers and wood decks, so why not a wood plank stamp with a paver type of stamp? I’ve never seen anything like this before and it definitely had that little extra we were looking for!
