Hubby decided to build an Outdoor kitchen himself instead of contracting it out. He's been working hard and making great progress. Cabinets are oak with a cherry oak stain and water sealer. The bottom will be stucco-he is using something called tuff stuff which I understand to be a premixed stucco and there's no need for a mesh backer. The counters along with the raised eating area will be marble tile.
Stained cabinets and rest of Hardibacker board;
Back of the kitchen facing the pool:
Bar height eating area with kick plate at the bottom-(plan to cover the kick plate with the scrape pieces of travetine coping from our pool build)
Marble tile for counter and eating area:
Access to plumbing, gas, electric and drain:
Stub out for plumbing, gas, electric and drain;
This has been his little project and I have tried to keep my input to a minimum but I had a question about the gas hook up-for the Houston area do most people do the gas hook up themselves or do you call some one out? Can one do the gas hook up themselves or is it required that you have someone come out and do it. When we had our pool built no one came out to inspect the gas, plumbing or electrical work so I am not sure how things are done in the Houston area. Hubby plans on doing the gas hook up himself....but I would feel better if someone came out and did it. And what are the people that hook up the gas for outdoor kitchens called? Do I look up "gas people" in the phone book?
