    akaCarioca's outdoor kitchen - looking for input

    Nice job!

    I am looking to build a small (8 ft wide) cooking area and have never heard of "welded aluminum frame" outdoor kitchens.
    One builder offers this:

    - Welded Aluminum Frame, Dryvit "TerraNeo" on Cabinets
    - 3cm granite countertop
    - Fire Magic refrigerator model #3590A
    - AOG Built in 30x18 grill model 30PB-00SP, with optional infrared burner
    - AOG storage door model 17-24-SD(under grill)
    - Fire Magic Legacy enting Panel model 5510-01
    - 15 x 15 under mount bar sink and faucet

    Any advice regarding traditional concrete vs welded aluminum frame? I have the concrete being poured on my pool tomorrow and need to make a decision on the kitchen this week.

    Here is the draft:

    15x34 in ground, 16.5K gallons, Emerald Isle pebble finishing
    Pentair IntelliFlow VS-3050 pump
    Pentair Quad D.E. filter
    Pentair IntelliChlor
    Pentair IntelliBrite 5g LED light
    Pentair Great White Vacuum cleaner

    Nothing at all wrong with welded aluminum. I have seen outdoor kitchen made with block, wood, metal studs and aluminum and they will all work if constructed properly. As a DIY'r I was more comfortable working with the metal studs, but that just a preference.

    16x32 IG vinyl, 19,000 gal, 1.0 hp pump, sand filter, 2 returns, 1 skimmer, diving board, slide

    Do you have an idea of the cost to built your outdoor kitchen including the appliances? The reason I asked is because you might want to look at a pre built one. I have one and love it. Look at this link

    The Firemagic Frig is fairly expensive. From what I have read, it is just a Danby with the Firemagic logo.

    I'm still undecided on my frig and all the rest of my stuff is Firemagic. I'm not going to pay an extra $300, just so the Frig says "Firemagic"
