This book brings attractive and functional outdoor kitchens within the reach of budget-conscious homeowners, with lots of design ideas, plenty of dream kitchens for inspiration, and more than 300 clear how-to photographs. Highly accessible DIY instructions carefully guide the reader through all aspects of construction—even cutting and installing a granite countertop. It shows you how to build lightweight "masonry" counters using steel studs and concrete backboard and offers alternatives to high-end appliances to save money. Also included are accessories and amenities to affordably customize an outdoor kitchen: fire pits, a variety of adobe/clay ovens, pergolas, awnings, TV and stereo equipment, mosquito abatement, misters and heaters, fireplaces, pizza ovens, and standup "churrasco" grills.
