You can change everything about home-cooked meals with a built in gas grill. Scottsdale clients of ours chose the sensational combination of pale travertine and Autumn Blend facing stone for their new pool side outdoor cooking space, and we’ve recently completed their project.
The grill is paired up with a 2-burner cook top to make whipping a meal on the patio more convenient. Both are set into a travertine prep and bar counter to match the new patio and pool deck. The counter top is sealed to prevent oils from soaking in. While this makes for quick and easy clean up with a simple wipe down, it also adds a soft polish to the surface for a sleeker look than unfinished stone. The wrap around bar comfortably seats 6 within steps from the cooking space. And there’s also a stainless steel ice chest to keep drinks on ice handy… more time for relaxing, and less running in and out of the house.
The work space faces away from the house and covered porch to keep the view as pretty as a picture for everyone but the chef. Here’s what it looks like from the stone-faced side below as seen through the windows. A smart looking outdoor living element and landscaping focal point.
