Default Re: Corner Install with Kitchen/Prep Area

Here are the pics after the foundation was poured and almost dried. My step-father-in-law, R.O., is removing the forms. As you can see, it's a modified corner install, sort of a U design. The concrete circle to the right will be a fire pit. I'm still throwing around ideas for the rest of the kitchen flooring: poured concrete, pavers, bricks. We'll see what I come up with.

Here are the pics after we dry-stacked the concrete blocks. We have since filled the cores with concrete and built up the rear of the counter area. We have also added the electrical wiring and tubing to both areas, for lights and outlets. The area where my step-father-in-law is sitting will be a concrete bench, with cushions on top for sitting. The grill temporarily set in place is the wood-fired grill my wife bought me for my birthday a few years back. This will be an all wood-fired backyard kitchen!!

Thumbs up Re: Corner Install with Kitchen/Prep Area

Thanks Telehort!!

Glad to meet another builder in the Sacto/Rocklin area!! Your oven looks great!! I'm also incorporating the two lights on the face of my oven, with the addition of a few electrical outlets, for kitchen - blender duties. I can't wait for the weather to clear up so I can continue with my project!

I'll post some pics of the wood deck I'm building right next to the backyard kitchen. I hope everything turns out great!

Let's keep each other posted, Telehort!

Aceves,

That's going to be a great looking build - love the layout. Don't wory about the weather, your're going to working in 100 deg + temps before you know it.

Very nice! Its great to be able to have a complete plan and do it all at once. I found this forum way too late for that. Looking forward to following your build. Keep the pix coming.

Thanks Mark!

Yes, the oven/kitchen plan had been in the works for quite some time. I figured it would be better to do it all at once than keep adding to it later on. I like your seating area too! And by the way, your build is coming along great! That herringbone section you added turned out great!
