Since several people are in the planning stages now for building their outdoor kitchens and I asked me about the cost of my build I thought I would share this info with the group. While I am not completely done I think I have now purchased all the supplies needed to finish the build and thought others would find it useful. I really only have the stucco left to apply to the exterior and a few touch up items. Of course this info is purely informational to help others budget for their build not to start any arguments nor get into a contest of who paid the least for the same item. Please note that the prices below may include shipping charges which I did not break out separately if purchased from an online vendor. Also I did not itemize every part from the receipt since everyone’s exact list will differ based on size of the island etc so in some cases I listed only the major items in the purchase and added the word supplies to be a catch all for pieces such as PVC fittings for instance. I really wanted to provide a broad category for someone to think about and make sure they account for when budgeting. The 3 items that come to mind for this is electrical, plumbing and natural gas piping.
This is not meant to scare people off from building an outdoor kitchen but rather provide a list of items to think about when planning. Of course prices will vary greatly depending on building materials used, size of island, appliances used etc.
High level overview of the project:
Framing – L shaped island that is 13’ by 10’ with an elevated bar area. Used 3 5/8” 20 gauge steel for frame. Required 180 linear feet of track and 238 linear feet of studs and about 1050 Rivets
Electrical – 50 amp service to a 60 amp sub panel that has 3 circuits. 1 circuit for Hot Water Heater, 1 circuit for internal outlets (3 total) and 1 circuit for external outlets (6 total).

Natural Gas – Service for 5 burner gas grill & double side burner
