We designed and built an expansive, multi-level patio complete with fire pit, seat wall and a roof structure in 2013. One thing was missing. An outdoor kitchen.
We had recommended including a built in grill and counter space when we initially designed the project, but there was no room in the budget. Knowing that our clients may one day want to build and outdoor kitchen, we ran propane and electric during the first phase. This past fall we returned to design and build an outdoor kitchen with a granite counter top, built in grill, built in Green Egg, built in refrigerator and storage. The kitchen was veneered with stone to match the seat wall and fire pit, and looks like it is part of the original build. In conjunction with the outdoor kitchen, we replaced wood stringer steps with segmental block to match what was used in the first phase of the patio build. We also replaced all of the wood porch and stair railings with composite railings.
