Years after years we’ve been taking a look at costly BBQ islands within the showrooms. Shiny and poorly built with plastic tops and sides spray-painted to create illusion of stucco finish they have been falling apart on my pals’ backyards after one season in the Northwest.
We really wished summer season kitchen, considering time we normally spent cooking outdoors utilizing our grills and smoker. Deck was constructed already, but we have decided so as to add one more level for kitchen island solely.
Step 1: Estimate how massive of an island you need, which shape, and which BBQ you can be buying. We have decided on Vermont model after studying about it at Amazon and checking high quality at local Dwelling Depot. Attempt to get one with straight corners, facet burner, and with hidden beneath wheels. It made sense to purchase complete unit as an alternative of going for “separate head and separate facet burner” sets. Top of the range Vermont (made in Canada) with facet burner was $649, whereas head itself (made in China) was round $800 plus $four hundred for further burner. We’ve purchased couple 20% OFF coupons on eBay and received BBQ for $519 (get your construction supplies at the identical time, so coupon would work for 20% OFF Total Buy).
Step 2: Determine which stainless steel doors you need and how many. Measure them on Weber grill you want at the shop. Call Weber and order them for about $forty every. So-known as “Door Package for Constructed-in BBQ” costs about $four hundred from the identical producer. Full framing with 2×4 PT boards, calculating partitions’ lengths and hights so much less chopping can be required throughout installation of 12″x12″ stone slates (they are literally eleven three/four”x11 3/4″). Contemplating 1/4″ spacing you would possibly wish to make top 24″ large (2 slates). Body opening(s) for door(s). REMEMBER to make openings 1/2″ bigger then you’ll want them considering thickness of beckerboard+adhesive+slate. So for 20″x20″ door you will need opening framed at 20 1/2″ stone island covent garden by 20 1/2″. Make sure that whereas framing prime, that it must be at slight angle backward (outdoors) to allow rainwater to run off, but not inside your island.
Step three: Run conduit for outlet, lights and water pipes throughout framing course of.
Step four: Set up beckerboard. Use 1/2″ thick. Don’t use Wonderboards: they are for floors and not as robust as Hardibeckers. You’ll need particular blade to chop them: one that marked for chopping Hardiplank siding.
Step 5: Begin putting in pure stone slates. They solely value (with coupon) ninety cents every, acquired beautiful colours and may withstand any weather without compromising quality. I purchased a easy 12″ chop noticed on eBay for $30 delivered worth with “diamond” blade. It remains to be good after ending this project.
Step 6: Use artificial mix (polymer) as a mortar and for grout I went with Keracolor S Sanded kind, since areas had been about 1/four”. Upon washing off excess grout and letting stones dry, “Impregnator 511” sealer was utilized to all slated surfaces.
Step 6: As a result of Vermont grill is a “stand-alone” mannequin and didn’t have rear heat-resisting panel, one sheet of galvanized steel was put in behind it previous to rolling BBQ in place. Refrigirator was added for summer time months.
Whole value was round $1200 (with grill and refrigerator). Materials alone: under $500

I’d never ever use a picket frame in a bbq island. Why even risk hearth, and what burns higher then anything Wooden. You should purchase metal studs at Dwelling Depot, it is a bit more work to make a frame out of it, but at the very least it stone island covent garden is fire proof. The rest of the steps are the identical, you’ll be able to nonetheless attach backer board to it. Additionally if you in the northern states extra precautions need to be taken to waterproof hardibacker.

That is as step-by-step as I did it few years ago. Nonetheless looks good, but I haven’t any plans, since all the pieces was tied as much as the size of the deck, tile pieces and BBQ’ dimensions.
