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?
