For Viewing Pleasure
Family and guests can take in the Southern California surroundings from this outdoor kitchen near the rear of the yard. The grill is placed near the edge of the shade structure so that smoke isn't trapped by the roof. The countertops, sink, and refrigerator are within easy reach of the cook. The color scheme matches that on the house, and the tiles and brick pavers look like those that surround the pool. In order not to disrupt the yard, the electric, gas, and phone lines were run underground in one 24-inch-deep trench.
