We removed the 10 year old deck this past fall. (Maybe that’s a whole other post). It was starting to show it’s age, and I had some rot isses around the back door that meant I had to remove part of the deck anyway to get at it.
In it’s place, we had a paver patio and wall installed as a foundation for a simple outdoor kitchen that I have been wanting to build. The rough plan above shows what we are shooting for. Stone and Cedar, with a tile countertop. This shows a built in grill, but I think it’s actually going to be a surround for my current grill in this first phase. Construction slated for May 2013.
