Project Name: A Fire Feature Project in Naples, Florida
Project Design Layout: Straight
Project Materials Description: HDPE outdoor rated cabinets, Custom built base for 48" Superior outdoor fireplace VRE4600 series, Blaze 5.2 cubic foot outdoor-rated refrigerator
A unique plan for an outdoor fire feature:
Although this project has a familiar ring to it as far as the outdoor kitchen aspect is concerned, it does have a few unique features that give it some added functional elegance. The customer requested that we design & construct an entertaining area with a built-in outdoor fireplace. We used a combination of materials & components to deliver this beautiful custom fireplace & outdoor living sanctuary.
When constructing this beautiful outdoor kitchen, we used our traditional methods for the layout and framing of the fireplace cabinet — using powder-coated aluminum that’s rated for outdoor use, and then covering with a wet weather-resistant type of backer board for the stone facade, the wet weather backer board is perfect for our Southwest Florida climate. Flanking the outdoor fireplace on each side are a couple of quality outdoor-rated cabinets from American Outdoor Cabinets in Lakewood Ranch, Florida.
Although this project may seem straightforward enough, the installation details are commonly overlooked by most. Our detailed design & installation process paid off in the end. We wanted the entire project to look like it was built together and not three separate add-ons sitting side by side. We designed the granite countertops to recess into the stacked stone of the fireplace. Due to the multi-dimensional nature of the stacked stone, we wanted the stacked stone to abut into the cabinets behind the doors. Finally, at the toe kick, we installed the stacked stone to run into the cabinetry rather than the reverse. We believe the details are the difference between attaining a haphazardly look or cohesive final result. That’s the Elegant Outdoor Kitchens difference. Our products are always designed and constructed as if they were getting installed in our own outdoor living space.
Custom Outdoor Living Project Details:
The fireplace was a 48” Superior outdoor fireplace VRE4600 series. The cabinet consisted of an 18” W three drawer cabinet, 32” & 22” wide drawer cabinets with two doors. We also installed a Blaze 5.2 cubic foot outdoor rated refrigerator.
The design selections were the Silver Travertine stacked stone, a mocha cabinet color with the modern door and paired with a level 1 New Caldonea granite.
