    If I were you I would change the pieces of pressure treated lumber that touch the ground with Trex. Pressure treated wood that is allowed to get wet will rot before the rest of the unit is ready to be replaced. Trex would keep most of it dry.

    I would replace ALL of the wood with metal. Here in Louisiana with high humidity, I chose not to have any wood in my island, even treated wood. If your stucco or tile over the wood frame, expansion of the wood due to humidity may cause cracks. A full metal frame won't expand and will last forever.

    Pretty dry here in So Cal. Not worried about pressure threated old rotting. The footing will be seal.

    Got it mostly covered up now.

    Re: New Island Build.

    fast forward,
    I put together a outdoor fireplace with blocks.
    For Everyone else, this is more entertaining than the BBQ island since more people enjoy this feature.
    about 240 block and misc travertine stone.
