Outdoor Kitchen / August 1, 2018 / Parnella Lejeune
Sooner or later summer comes to an end. I dont know about you but I love to grill in the winter too. Try a toe kick heater. A toe kick heater is built into the bottom of the grill structure to keep your feet warm in the winter. Just as an umbrella sleeve will keep you comfortable in the summer a toe kick heater will let you cook outside all winter long. The subtle innovative design will allow you to stand by the grill until the food is well done. (Remember heat rises. Toe kick heaters will not only keep your feet warm but also make sure you dont freeze anything else off either.)
This technique unfamiliar to the average homeowner incorporates a on grade foundation that will cut your structural costs in half. Your outdoor kitchen and grill can be set on a slabongrade foundation as opposed to a typical footing. Slabongrade means the shape is dug into the ground gravel is set at the bottom and concrete is poured level with the hole and reinforced by steel. This technique works in conjunction with metal framed structures metal framed structures weigh significantly less than masonry structures and are designed to handle the countertop weight. This simple system removes the need for a deeply dug footing and concrete block cutting back structural costs by 50 percent.
It creates a second kitchen Since most outdoor kitchens include a grill sink and mini refrigerator it will come in handy in the event that your main kitchen is out of commission. Outdoor kitchens can help you get through a plumbing emergency power outages (if you have an electric stove in the main kitchen) and a kitchen remodel. If the main kitchen is a mess of epic proportions and you just cant face cleaning it before dinner break out the paper plates and napkins and head outside.
