  • Brick masonry or concrete block – Two of the most common and traditional options for construction of an outdoor kitchen are brick masonry or concrete block. Both of these options are permanent options that require clients to give much thought to the area where the installation is to occur.  Since it is a complex project, budget monitoring is an absolute must do for this project.  The overall project can take a bit of time and is apt to create some disruption to your back yard, but overall the project, when completed, will not only add aesthetic appeal to your home, but certainly add to your backyard oasis.

  • Wood frame –  An outdoor kitchen with a wood frame base is typically comprised of pressure treated pine since it can withstand heat that is generated by a grill.  A backer board, usually made of cement, serves to protect the wood from water and heat.  This style kitchen will require stucco, stone, tile, or brick veneers as well as concrete panels and, like concrete or brick kitchens, can be customized to meet the personal taste and style of the homeowner.
