    Grill Island (thanx TFP forum for links/ideas etc.)

    Prolly spent two weeks of spare time on the project. *Purchased this online tutorial (the ten bucks saved me a lot of trial and error) *http://www.symphonybbq.com/media/Sample.pdf (thanx to whomever recommended it)

    Then got to framing. (thanks for the shadowbox idea, can't recall who did it previously) *I'm completely unfamiliar with steel drywall studs. *Really easy to use though:



    Screwed some hardi-backer to it and hit it with a scratch coat of stucco. *Electric is wired up within. *I put the grill and door in to mock it up and make some ribs.



    Tiled and grouted with some Saltillo tile.



    Archway is to store some firewood for a fire pit. *Finish coat of stucco is on and it's painted. *Lights and electric aren't finished, but fridge is in place. *Went with an old school broilmaster grill. *I liked the warranty and wanted to try the 1/2 infrared grill part too.

    15K gallon inground pool. Krystalkrete finish, 1.5hp Hayward pump, 120 gpm cartridge filter, Polaris 360 cleaner.

    Really does look good. That keystone tile in the arch is a great touch.

    As a DIY'er, how tough would you say this project was?

    It really wasn't that hard. The link to the guide I posted was really helpful. Building with steel drywall studs was easier than with wood. Stucco was the most challenging part. (I really don't like doing stucco!!)

    Very nice, I considered steel studs but went with BBQ Coach. I think the Saltillo looks very nice!

    Once I get my pool right I am planning on building something like this. Stucco was a great idea, I was stuck on brick or block. That would be easier
