I love grilling. For 15 years I lived in our house with a crappy grill. The time finally came for us to replace the decking around our pool, so I had them demo out the old small brick grill, and stub off utilities where I was going to build my new grill. First... a little work in Sketchup to plan all my framing and the dimensions of the finished product: The utilities included gas, electrical, water, and drain: Metal framing to avoid rot and insect damage: Framing complete. My wife wanted the curved front which complicated things tremendously, but ultimately looks awesome: Cement board: Stucco and tile work: Hrm. Well I decided I wanted to go with REAL STONE on the front and sides to match the stone in our pool. This was a BIG JOB... probably 40 man hours of just stone work. Install bar countertop. Can't see it in the photo, but I have LED strip lighting under the bar on both sides: Install appliances, and Voila! Finis! Just needed to buy four bar stools. I also have a large cutting board that fits over the burner to the right of the grill. I wanted a big burner to boil seafood or fry turkeys.
