Start with a Foundation

Before you start any project, you need to lay down a solid foundation. This means making sure that you’ve got a good base of support before you build anything else. In other words, you should think about what’s going to happen first. What will you put there? How much weight will you be supporting? Will you need to add supports later?

Choose the Right Materials

You’ll need to choose the right materials for your outdoor kitchen. If you plan to use wood as part of your design, make sure you select a quality material that won’t rot or warp. Also, consider how much maintenance you’ll need to do to keep your outdoor kitchen looking good.

Create a Budget

Before you start building your outdoor kitchen, you should first determine what kind of budget you’re willing to spend. This will help you decide whether you want to build a small, medium, or large outdoor kitchen.

Plan Ahead

If you plan ahead, you’ll save money and time when it comes to designing and building your outdoor kitchen. You can also make sure that everything goes smoothly by planning out how you’ll use the space before you begin construction.

Add Cabinets

If you’re planning to install an outdoor kitchen, you’ll probably want to consider adding cabinets, countertops, lighting fixtures, and more. You might also want to consider how you’ll use the space. Do you plan to cook large meals? Or do you just want to grill smaller items?

An excellent experience from start to finish. David is very experienced in terms of site position, planning, seeing potential problems and finding good cost effective solutions. Dale and Dean were a pleasure to have working on site. As a family, we love our outdoor kitchen and cannot recommend it enough. The blinds and pivoting roof makes it a useable space for all seasons. I wouldn’thesitate to recommend David and his team to anyone.

I think sometimes, projects like this can be so overwhelming. Although, with David’s advice and wealth of knowledge, he was able to advise and help to design our outdoor kitchen which catered for all our needs and requests and all within our budget too. Thank you!

All about outdoor living came to see me and produced some amazing ideas, after getting the quotation and drawings I was pleasantly surprised it was in my budget. The workmen who carried out the job were clean and hard working, I can highly recommend this company for doing what they say they will do. Thank you David for overseeing the project and making the whole process comfortable for me.
