BBQ Bar With a View
I built this bar and bbq myself in the summer of 2006. The foundation is concrete block, with El Dorado stone for the facing. 4-burner stainless steel grill and a mini refrigerator. Countertops are ceramic tile on cement backerboard. The bar area is 4 inches higher than the grill area in order to have a distinct bar/serving area. The bbq/bar area took 3 months to plan and 1 month to build. It's been a great addition to our backyard.
2 of 14: After the first two courses of concrete block were laid. These were the most important courses as they needed to be straight and level.
3 of 14: The last course is laid and the bbq fits, so now it's time to fit the door and then add the facing: El Dorado Stone.
5 of 14: This was the last check that the grill fit in it's slot before I pulled it back out to finish the counter top.
10 of 14: The mini frig under the bar. Electricity was run in under the cement from the house prior to pouring.
