Sounds great, steve1234! Hope you are enjoying your new addition to your backyard. How did it go, building with a sink and all?

We love it. Truth be told, it's "half a sink" as the drain is not tied into our house drain, and it's cold water only. I ran the drain down a hill adjacent to our house. As you can see from the pics there's not a lot down there. We just use it for light rinsing, but even for that it is handy.

That's a gorgeous set up you've got there, Steve! The bbq looks great, and I love the lush greenery surrounding the property. Looks like a lot of mountain/woodland trees. What part of the country are you in?

Thanks for the info!

Ahhh. No wonder why I thought it looked so nice!

Great area down there. Looks like you've got a great lot, very woodsy.

Nice Set-up Steve! You should throw these pics and any construction pictures up on http://www.yardshare.com. Yours would be a great addition to the bbq's already there. Your's would be the 3rd Bay Area bbq that I know of.

I just wanted to also say very nice job! How much does a project like that usually run without the grill components?

In the beginning it always seems like it will be cheaper, then you have to add in the sprinkler piping I busted when digging.......

I don't have the actual roll up but here's a guess:
Digging - my labor - "free"
Cememt pad - $150
(Son falling off his bike in the freshly poured concrete - priceless)
Plumbing (pvc) - $40
Framing (pt 2x4's) - approx $200
Plywood - siding - $90
Electrical - $100
Tile (home depot) - $300
Stucco - $75
Metal trim - $60
Tile substrate - $100
Sink & fixture - interesting question - I bought a $50 sink, my wife didn't like it, she went to her plumbing source, came back with a copper sink and wouldn't come clean on the cost.
The redwood cover was spendy - approx $450.
Drop in stainless cooler - $450
Cheap refridge - $80
Stainless doors - $500.
BBQ- actually a standalone. Took the side trays off, wheels off and slid it into the space.

Then of course, you have to new chairs.....

For what you have thats not so bad. I wanted to make a built in one myself but I have a walkout and I'm to lazy to run down the deck to the ground floor when grilling the odd meal each week!

That fridge only cost you $80???? Was it on clearance? I checked Home Depot and couldn't find anything that nice remotely close to that price. Can you provide more details? Thanks!

i have some stupid questions..

how do you select the BBQ so that it fits in the opening you make? are these special for built-in installation? did you buy a BBQ and then just take the top half off? are they standard size so that you can easily replace 5 years from now?
