I have been doing this deck and fence building for 4 decades now and have never built an outdoor kitchen.
Well that is about to change. I designed and built a really, so I say, nice Fiberon split level deck going down a slope. If I knew how to up-load pictures here I would show you and gat your feed back having seen the job.
Clemens cleaned up my photo's so the Ipe pops instead of looking dull, he would not tell me how he did it.
I digress I would like some kitchen constructing ideas. first off what is choice of framing materials, metal studs or treated wood, height normally used, my client is short, how deep from front to back?
I plan using granite for the top and splash guard.
I am guessing I would build the frame then pick out the grill, egg, or whatever he wants in it then call a granite company and let them cut it to fit?
I have been told somewhere that I should use a thicker granite for this type of application?
I plan on using the man made stone, I think it looks great and is much lighter than the real stone. This is being built on top of this deck. Yes the extra framing was put in place when we were building the deck.
If I may where is the best place to buy kitchen grills and appliances?
Thank you for your input,
