Project Name: Multi-Family Complex Outdoor Kitchen Remodel
Project Design Layout: Straight
Project Materials Description: Remodeling the outdoor kitchen: each of the three existing Monogram Grills were removed and replaced with a Blaze 32" Traditional Series 4-Burner with an insulated jacket. As a precautionary measure, we also added ventilation to the base of the outdoor kitchen to appease ourselves and the customer. Safety first!
In the courtyard of a multi-family complex, somewhere in the heart of Southwest Florida, lied a dated, underused outdoor kitchen in need of reconstructive surgery. Surrounded by the beauty of nature and constructs of humankind, it shouldn’t have been the bane of its proximity. But often obsolescence has a funny way of showing its face; it isn’t something one can recognize in the moment, but rather it creeps into your consciousness like a leaf spiraling and dancing through the autumn air until it lands at your feet. When you pick it up, you examine it, tear into it, and watch as a newer, more healthy batch takes its place.
We spent about 3 hours in the conceptual stages, planning the most economical way the grill replacement could ensue. The issue was conforming our new barbecue to fit the old parameters of the island. We toyed with a few different ideas but ultimately decided it made the most sense to build a new grill base out of aluminum for the jacket to hang from; however, the grill jacket was not wide enough to completely fill the opening left by the existing cutout. To overcome this dilemma, we had additional stainless steel components fabricated to perfectly fill in the remainder of the opening.
“Just wanted to let you know the guys did a great job installing the grills. We appreciate it. They look great. Good job, kudos.”
