    Question Outdoor kitchen framing materials

    Hi all,

    Have been talking to various builders, and some swear by steel, some swear by cinder blocks, and one tonight swore by using wood for the framing for my outdoor kitchen (with proper hardiboard, Tyvek, etc). Is wood a code acceptable thing to use on an ODK? He insists his kitchens pass all necessary inspections and wood provides more flexibility if you want to make changes, and etc.

    Re: Outdoor kitchen framing materials

    Wood is generally code compliant as framing for outdoor kitchens with one exception. It can't be in contact with (or even near) a grill. Wood has numerous other problems. It can't generally be exposed to water. It doesn't do well with humidity and it burns.


    Most wood framed odd are well undercover.

    Ask to see a wood framed kitchen this guy built five years ago.

    Our cabinets are all wood but we are completely covered. We did line the grill insert with cement board though.

    We used aluminum framing, with Hardiboard Lite to close in the frame. Nothing flammable in our build...
