Outdoor Kitchen Installation

Installing an outdoor kitchen is a complex process that takes place in several steps, from design to construction and clean up, with several layers of construction taking place beyond a typical structural build. Our work is thoroughly checked and verified throughout the process and timelines are managed closely to deliver a high-quality, fully functional outdoor kitchen on budget and on-time.

Here’s a step-by-step overview of how we bring your outdoor kitchen project to life:

  • Initial Consultation: We start by understanding your vision, needs, and preferences for the outdoor kitchen. Our team visits your property to assess the space, take accurate measurements, and discuss potential layouts and features that will best suit your outdoor living area and lifestyle.

  • Design Phase: Based on your input and our site assessment, we craft a custom design tailored to your specific requirements. This phase includes selecting materials and appliances that fit your style and budget. We provide detailed plans and 3D renderings to help you visualize every last detail of the completed kitchen.

  • Material and Appliance Selection: You’ll choose from a range of high-quality materials and state-of-the-art outdoor appliances. We guide you through selecting options that offer durability and performance, ensuring they withstand the Texas climate and meet your culinary needs.

  • Site Preparation: Our team prepares the installation site, which may include leveling the ground, installing utilities like gas, water, and electricity, and ensuring that all preparations meet local building codes.

  • Construction and Installation: Finally, our team of builders begins the construction of your outdoor kitchen, closely following the approved designs. And this phase includes everything from concrete and patio installation, building the framework and a cover, if needed, installing cabinetry to setting up appliances, as well as any finishing touches.

  • Final Inspection and Walk-Through: After construction, we conduct a comprehensive inspection, checking that every aspect of the kitchen meets our high standards. We then walk you through the new space to ensure your complete satisfaction and demonstrate how to use the new appliances and features.

Our goal is to ensure that your outdoor kitchen installation runs smoothly and on-time, and that the final result exceeds your expectations.
