Outdoor kitchen and fire pit

Project by spooled posted 02-05-2011 04:35 PM 6806 views 5 times favorited 7 comments Add to Favorites Watch

The outdoor kitchen I did a couple years ago. The concrete counter tops were made from some laminate frames cast on the ground,colored concrete and then smooth side up when installed. A big messy job since we had almost 10 inches of rain the day I cast the tops. I did the work under a patio cover but the swimming pool over flowed so bad that I realized what my next project would be: installing a french drain and 4’ drain pipe to the ditch behind our property . more on that later when I show how we had to put a retaining wall around the pool patio.
The fire pit I did last year and finally built the adirondack chairs out of cypress. I copied some recycled plastic chairs that we bought for the pool patio. The fire pit was made out of some smooth round stones that were already here when we bought the house. The cap for the pit was cut limestone I purchased locally mined. The walk and patio are crab orchard from Tenn.

Looks great.

Is there an outdoor sink and washing area to go with the barbecues? And bar fridge?

No,sink or fridge outside. The outdoor kitchen is just off the garage side door, I have both in there, so it’s close by and protected from the weather. Outdoor fridges don’t hold up very well outdoors, corrosion and critters are a problem. I only keep charcoal under the grill as the utensils are kept inside also for the same reasons. In Fla. the big expensive S/S grills with drawers etc. don’t hold up well due to salt air and humidity and last but not least bugs.
