The Imitation Barbeque Island Project at Verandah

This project was a repeat of a barbeque island we had built in the Verandah previously. The customer’s home was the same layout as their neighbor’s. They loved their neighbor’s outdoor kitchen configuration. Although the wall space in this area isn’t ideal, we were able to build an outdoor kitchen that was packed full of functionality and counter space. Who are we to argue with that kind of logic, when it works, it works.

The cabinet structure that houses the grill is 6’4″, with the perpendicular section that houses the refrigerator at 7’2″. The exposed sides of the island cabinets were finished with a Golden White stacked stone.
On the backside of the refrigerator cabinet, we added a 10″ granite overhang. The granite type for the counter-tops was a level 1 Amarillo Ornamental. We also used the same kind of granite for a 3 ft x 3 ft backsplash behind the grill. The backsplash is ideal when it concerns cleaning and overall upkeep of the island, which makes cleaning the smoke residue and build-up behind the grill simple.
In addition to the barbeque island, we also constructed a 6’8″ outdoor buffet, just like we had at their neighbor’s home.

The featured highlight of this project is the stacked stone backsplash located on the wall behind the grill cabinet; it cohesively ties the overall elements of the build together.
