This outdoor kitchen project turned out to be much longer than I ever expected. I first bought all the stainless steel components so I could incorporate them into my Sketchup drawings prior to construction. I used porcelain tiles on the counter top. Ceramic tiles would not survive the cold weather. The wood around the counter is called Garapa from Brazil. Probably the biggest challenge in building the outdoor kitchen was the cultured stone. Cultured stone is a man made stone and I expect some duplications but after installing approximately 100 pieces I didn’t find any duplication. It took me around 25 hours to install the cultured stone but It was worth the effort. I was extremely happy with the outcome.
