Outdoor Kitchen / July 22, 2018 / Amaury Dubeau
If you plan to have a third party perform the construction of the outdoor kitchen make sure you know exactly what you want and start the negotiations from your ideal point dont forget that contractors sometime have their own preferences but they are not the ones living in the house so remember to make it absolutely clear that you are calling the shots on this outdoor kitchen design.
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.
Another great costsaver for natural stone outdoor kitchens and grills is the use of 2inch ThinStone Veneer. ThinStone veneer covers the outer perimeters of a structure with a thin layer of natural stone giving the outdoor kitchen or grill the appearance of being made entirely of natural stone. For those looking to save money thinstone veneer creates the perfect appearance of a full 4 natural stone veneer but cost half as much because it requires significantly less labor. You your friends and your family will not know the difference between full depth stone and thinstone veneer.
