The Many Considerations of Designing an Outdoor Kitchen

Original Presentation Date: July 1st, 2020

Kitchens include several trades that must be coordinated for a successful build. Outdoor kitchens are equally complicated. Structure, equipment, finishes, gas, electrical, water - where do we start? The easy answer would be "the foundation" but you might be missing something even more important - like a sewage ejector system for the sink!
