Put in a few good days and finally got my grill and drawers which have been backordered. (ordered 6 weeks ago).


The big open area I have a granite shelf that will go in there splitting it in 1/2. I might make some nice barnwood oak doors for it. Not sure.

The area under the pizza oven will be wood storage.

Only "maybe" will be building a wood pergola to span the whole thing. Just something decorative. Wife thinks it will look nice, but I have a few other projects I need to tackle first. Like putting the new differential in my R8 ;)

Just in time for summer!

This looks awesome! Already imagining you hosting family and friends there. Great job!

Turning my attention inside. I put in a very large fridge / freezer when I designed the house. (It is almost 5 1/2' in width total). So I never thought I would need a second fridge close. (my last home I kept 2 fridges and 1 chest freezer).

So I found I was going a lot more to our fridge downstairs with overflow stuff and I wanted to add another fridge closer. Right behind the big fridge in the kitchen is a walk in 14'x8' pantry. I had initially designed it with a bunch of cabinets but we never go them put in before we moved in. (I am glad now).

I decided to take the downstairs fridge and move it just off our kitchen. This was easier said than done since I had no electrical on that wall and certainly no water line for the icemaker. This weekend I went a little crazy cutting out drywall and got all the stuff moved. I had spent the previous weekend building the first few cabinets for the pantry and built the freidge sourround extra deep to accommodate the big fridge. Doors will be the last thing I build. I have to do all the built-in cabinets next. (Just temp shelving in there currently)

This might sound stupid, but there are few things that make me as happy as being stocked up on food.

CAD below is what my finished layout will be.

Do you need a special fridge for outside? I just redid my 3 season room and put a nice French door beverage cooler in there, dual zone 1/2 wine, 1/2 beer and it seems to be sweating with the humidity. Just wondering what you put outside and if it's special for weather.

If it is covered, (not getting direct rain) it should be fine. Exposed ones to the elements dont hold up. On my old outdoor kitchen, I just put a cheaper unit in that was not made for outside. It was only $160. It burned out after 3 years so I just bought the same model again and said "screw it" since a true outdoor rated one was about $750. I figure I could put in 5 of the cheap ones and just let them burn out if they go ;) It would be 15 years before I had the same money tied up. But we sold the house so I dont know how long that one lasted.

There is so much stuff out there in regards to outdoor kitchens. If you are going "built-in" and hiring it out, I would say you could do it as cheap as 5k but easily go to 20 depending on what you spec.

There are some good "diy" options that some 'big box' stores sell which already come as modules. Charbroil sells what looks like a neat product line. I think lowes carries it. They have all kinds of configs you can put together if you are not super specific in your layout. This would be FAR cheaper than building if you find something you like.
