I started this project in 2007. Construction was new to me and it was definitely a learning experience for my son and I.

"Every time a man finishes his outdoor kitchen, an angel gets his wings! You've really done an incredible job. I love the detail of the tile and the granite gives it such a clean look. The next picture I want to see posted...that grill fired up working on some steaks for a Memorial Day celebration!"

"It's been awhile since I popped in, but I finally have something to post about. Survived Hurricane Ike (2008) with only minor damage to the house. Completed repairs for that then it was back to the kitchen. I found contractors with reasonable pricing for gas, water and electric, then on the home stretch for tile and granite countertops~just in time for Memorial Day. I think I succeeded in making this the longest project ever! Hope you like it! "

"Hi Shyron, I never compared price to cinder-block, but the ease of construction and design options made me use the metal framing~very easy to cut and fasten. I have progressed from what you see in the pics a bit but Hurricane Ike was a major set back for me. I'll be back at it and post up new pics soon. There are kits available but I bought the metal framing from Lowes (less than $200). Yes, it is very weather resistant. It 's been uncovered (as you see it) for many months with NO signs of rust "

"WAS THIS METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION CHEAPER THAN GOING TO STONE? DID YOU PURCHASE AN ACTUAL KIT TO BUILD THE FRAME? IS IT WEATHER RESISTENT?"
