As the season of warm and lighter evenings is upon us, eating outside, surrounded by friends, is one of the many perks of a glorious summer.
Of course, a good gathering place for family and friends is needed and many of us think creating an outdoor kitchen and dining area is an expensive task.
But it doesn’t have to be, with a little creativity and skill nothing is impossible, and one family has proved this with their ingenious build-you-own grill idea.
The result is so impressive I just had to share. See for yourself in the pictures below.
This impressive outdoor kitchen starts with a simple wooden U-shape construction.
Next step: a raised beam that can be used for storage or to lean on and enjoy a cold drink.
Once the entire foundation has been laid, the work surfaces are added.
Where the grill will sit, metal beams are applied – safety first.
An opening to store ice and keep drinks cold is, of course, an essential part of outdoor dining.
Underneath storage is coming along nicely.
This impressive project starts to look like a grill and food preparation area.
The grill fits perfectly.
Black granite tiles make for a stylish work surface.
Mosaic tiles complete the look.
The outer surfaces are painted and the grill and outdoor kitchen start to take shape.
Stainless steel cabinet doors complete the look.
This stunning outdoor kitchen is complete.
Now this family can enjoy cooking and entertaining friends surrounded by beautiful views.
