Hi all! I'm in the process of starting part of my outdoor kitchen while I have a few weeks left in the season. I want to get in the grill, power burner and Big Green Egg in before the fall.
I have a few questions.
I am putting manufactured stacked stone on the sides and front. The stone depth is anywhere from 1 1/2" to 3 1/2. I'm estimating at 3" to be safe. I plan to granite the top. Do I put the stone on first? Which I think I planned on doing. How far up should i go up to the top. I just don't want the hardie to show. Once the stone is done. Do I need to add another layer of HB over the stone depth or do I leave it as is?
Also, I have a big backsplash on one side that is against the house. How do I treat the HB? Should I stucco it or can I leave it alone once it's seamed and taped? Do you guys protect HB underneath bar overhangs?
