Just thinking about building an outdoor kitchen can be overwhelming, but it need not be. You can simply add a pizza oven or counters or tabletops next to your existing grill. Even if you want a comprehensive, full-service living space outside, you probably have a strong desire to absorb the healing features of the great outdoors. Natural stone, then, becomes the obvious building material.
For some great outdoor kitchen tips about location, placement, and type of stone (full veneers, thin veneers, or 2-inch slabs for countertops), read Backyard Goals: Creating an Outdoor Kitchen.
Then, show your family and guests the real beauty of nature in (or out in) your kitchen.
