Very, very nice jobs on the bbq island and the pergola. I am in the middle of a similar project here in Rockwall as well. Just completed the steel frame and ready to proceed with hardibacker. Plan to use tile countertop and faux stone siding. SS doors.

Any lessons learned to offer? I have already found that this takes much more time and trips to HD/Lowes than I imagined :)

Have not started on pergola yet. That is next project. Did you design it yourself - if so, what was your source of design info on column and beam loading? Also, did you find a good source of cedar or redwood in the local area? Noticed that your pergola does not cover the bbq island. Is there a safety/code reason for that?

Thanks much and once again - great job.

Richards;
Thanks!
Yes I can't tell you how many times I went back to HD...
For the pergola I just went off a few designs I saw on line, but I ended up just creating my own design on my computer and cutting each beam, time consuming but worth it. I ordered all the cedar wood from Home Depot and since it's longer than what they keep in stock it took about a week to get in, so make sure you have your design exactly what you want.

The grill area did take longer than thought but well worth it. We spend almost all our time outside cooking-out and enjoying it.
I did not cover that part because I didnot want to feel closed in and wanted more room for seating under the pergola area. However I have seen some that are under pergola's and roof's and they are very nice.

Anymore questions feel free to ask!
Post some pictures of your build as you progress.
