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.
Why not use this material and save money for essential costs of an outdoor living space? Or given the low cost thinstone veneer can be used on your outdoor kitchen and grill as well as your cabana or home for a uniformed style. Not everything can be included within the outdoor kitchen itself. Just like an indoor kitchen you will definitely need your typical household appliances. Electrical outlets conveniently located on the kitchen backsplash allow hotplates blenders and rotisserie cookers to be plugged in right at your outdoor cooking station.
It used to be that outdoor entertaining conjured up the familiar image of the picnic lunch at the park. You only needed a picnic basket thermos paper plates and plastic utensils. Or if you wanted to be able to host an outdoor luncheon or dinner you would toss some items on a barbecue pit out in the backyard and flip burgers and hotdogs. Cooking on a grill is a great way to entertain outdoors. However it is a nuisance to have to go back and forth from the kitchen to the patio. That is way outdoor kitchens have become more and more popular.
