The Visionary Needed A Custom Barbecue Island Design – Prefabricated Just Wouldn’t Cut It!

This was a sizeable barbecue island design project, at times it was challenging, entertaining and rewarding all at the same time.  This homeowner definitely had a vision for this project long before we ever entered the picture.  They already had the grill, which they loved, so they needed that built into the new base.  They wanted a big hood with a powerful motor.  And they wanted a separate buffet with some storage underneath.

First let’s discuss the L-shape outdoor kitchen. The cabinet base housing the grill is 6’5″ in length. On the right side, there is a perpendicular section that extends 7’2″ from the back of the grill base. The base is framed with aluminum and wrapped with a wet weather backer board. The façade along the exposed sides is a stacked stone (Cappadocia – click for available options).

The countertop and granite backsplash are a level 3 granite (Creama Bourdeaux). The backsplash is 4″ in height, rising to 36″ high for a width of 42″, centered under the hood and behind the grill. There is a 10″ overhang off the back of the refrigerator base.

The remainder of the wall behind the grill, not covered by the cabinet base, granite or hood is a 4″x4″ Cappadocia tile on a diagonal.

The following components were incorporated into the base of the outdoor kitchen:

The 6’8” buffet was constructed using the same materials as the L-shape summer kitchen.  The following components were incorporated into the buffet:

A Truly Elegant Way to Enjoy Your Time with Friends and Family

It is no surprise that this new custom barbecue island design was constructed in a home in the Verandah in Fort Myers. The Verandah is a community that wonderfully combines the outdoor lifestyle with camaraderie of its residents. We definitely see the neighbors gathering around this stunning entertaining area to enjoy each other’s company. This custom built outdoor living area is perfect for those regular evening BBQ’s as well as the occasional intimate gathering among more than a few friends. One thing is for certain though, they’ll always have a beautiful outdoor kitchen that enables them to serve amazing BBQ to their friends and loved ones.
