Phased projects continue to drive the home improvement market and are a smart way to gradually improve your active lifestyle and surroundings. This very cool grill station is daring, custom and fits appropriately into the new screened porch. The generous living space blends seamlessly into the Moffitt Farms custom home.
The desire for modern lines and a clean, maintenance free, abbreviated footprint led us to Azek decking as the non-traditional face of the grill station. Azek offers a “plug” system that hides ordinary screw heads and prompts a very finished look. Tile matching the home’s interior was sourced for the counter with tight joints to ease in cleaning.
GRILL. FRIDGE. TRASH.
Mr. Homeowner did a considerable amount of online research before selecting the perfect stainless steel components. The grill has enough BTU’s to sear a steak in seconds or fuel NASA’s next excursion to Mars. Stainless steel is very compelling in grill stations and drives an expected level of excitement to entertaining. The 36” wide doors offer a bit of storage and access to the interior grill elements.
Remember the desperate dorm refrigerator of years ago? Updated, cost friendly versions are cleverly finished, easy to remove for winter storage and house a boatload of goodies. Any volume of entertaining produces a fair amount of recyclables that needs disposed of. The trash receptacle insert handles this issue nicely and is an appreciated addition.
Angie’s southwest decorating flair was a huge success and the entire project benefited from a diverse range of influences that married well together.
The Carmel east-siders are thrilled with the porch / deck / grill station and have commissioned phase 2 of the project featuring an arched clay paver patio, shade producing pergola, natural boulder fire pit and tasteful landscape. Installing now.
Outdoor living at it’s finest!
