New Outdoor Dining Space: After
Who: Jeff W.
Where: Athens, Ohio
My wife and I spend a lot of time out there together having coffee or a beer—we think of it as great marriage counseling! The outdoor kitchen was the longest and largest portion of the project. I modified a Pompeii oven to include two openings, cooking wood on the lower level and a fireplace on the upper level. The outdoor kitchen also includes a built-in grill with side burner, a sink, handmade-tile cabinets with stainless doors, concrete countertops, wine-bottle lighting, and a beer tap. Then I put in flagstone and paver patios, a cedar pergola dining area, and a potting table.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself.
Cost: $10,000 to $25,000
