Choose Your Outdoor Kitchen Layout
Before we begin your custom outdoor kitchen design and construction, we will need to discuss your use of space and kitchen layout. We will visit your home and assess your space. We may take measurements and photos to assist us while planning your custom outdoor kitchen design. We’ll need to evaluate where you want your kitchen to be installed, how much space you have to work with, and which local ordinances, regulations, and building codes will affect your plans. We will need to consider factors like sun exposure, wind direction, access to utilities, and building ordinances.
Prepare for Custom Outdoor Kitchen Construction
Once we have finalized your custom outdoor kitchen design and finalized the blueprints, we will submit them to the appropriate local municipal department for review. We will need to obtain permits before we can begin construction. We will then need to prepare the area by removing unnecessary dirt, rocks, sod, and other materials. We will stake and tie off the installation area and pour a slab or build a foundation. We’ll then run the necessary utility lines and power lines. Next, we’ll build the shelter structure, which can either be a permanent or temporary fixture. Then we will install cabinets, countertops, storage, and food prep space. Next, we’ll install appliances and hook them up to the necessary utilities. We will build or install additional custom features, like seating, a fire pit, sound system, and smart features.
Understand Small Outdoor Kitchen Maintenance & Care
You can extend the lifespan of your outdoor kitchen by caring for it properly year-round. When features aren’t in use, keep them covered and protected from the elements. Always clean each surface thoroughly after cooking and dining. Put food away appropriately to prevent animals and pests. If you notice signs of damage, get them professionally repaired right away, or they will get bigger and can affect the safety or structural integrity of the outdoor kitchen space. If you don’t plan on using your outdoor kitchen in the winter, clean it thoroughly and disconnect it from utilities. Winterize any pipes or utility lines, and cover everything to protect it from snow, wind, rain, and ice. Do not store food in an outdoor kitchen over the winter.
