Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


So now that everything is done, how much would you have charged? Was the $12k that far off?

Well all materials were around 4 grand...

And it took me 6 days.. even if it took 2 full weeks 12k was far off....

Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


Looks great. Your reply makes it sound as if the number should have been less than 12K?

In my opinion and pricing yes it would be less.. 4-5 grand material + 2 weeks labor..

Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


kitchen looks awesome!!!
great job on the stone work
being new to the site (yesterday) I have not gotten to the level of posting pictures yet......but I am working on the same project at my house. Mine has been an ongoing project for years now! Blew the first budget on a grill (Viking) then as time went on the kitchen grew. I have exactly the same side profile as your with the rear/upper counter. I also waited till I had all the doors on hand to do the final framing for the front. Never trust the mfg. Hoping for it to be done this year, maybe.
You did a great job!!
LOVE it!

Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


I guess I missed this one. Very nice work. (must remember to NOT show this to wife)

FWIW, the first "rule of thumb" I learned in contracting was materials x 3. 4k in material = 12k finished project. OF course we also learn not to operate in reality by rule of thumb.

Good Luck
Dave

Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


Just me talking but I would not build an outdoor kitchen without removing the pavers..pouring some footers and using block with a couple of poured downcells.

Seen too many built out of lumber (PT) or studs not attached to the ground via footers that do not take the abuse or weather over an extended period of time..

All my kitchens are built with hurricanes in mind though.

The work and execution of the design look topnotch though. Thank for all the pictures.

Yea i would never want a kitchen sitting on pavers.. I would of liked a 10" slab.... I told my dad on day one, i guarantee you its going to settle a bit.. But im not going to argue with him. Best part is out of the 3 company's that came to give a quote im the only one who suggested a pad... Go figure.

Block is for sure the strongest method but i think overkill in situations.. 20 ga studs, 1/2 permabase, lath & scratch coat turned that thing into one hell of a structure.

Thanks for the positive words everyone.

Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


That looks great. Nice work.

Did you find material costs to be any cheaper down there?

The metal stud was a bit more due to it not being a very common thing down there it seemed.

Everything else id say was similar in price..

Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


Nice Job!


I 'm just about finished with mine. Just waiting on countertop.

I built mine out of 1 x2 and 2 x2 tube steel and welded it. It took me 2 1/2 days to frame a 20' L shaped kitchen and bar. Seems like the steel stud method was a lot faster.

I used bolts and welded nuts for leveling. Primed and painted the frame, hardibacker, stone on one side and Dryvit on the other.

These things are pretty fun to build.
