How We Do It
Our outdoor kitchen creation follows a systemic and proven process. These are ideas that we have implemented for years now and have found them to suffice for our clients. This is how our professionals do it, even though the steps and materials used are dependent on each project and a client's preferences.
Excavating and Pouring Footings
Once we have cleared the area where the Fireplace will be put, we excavate it for the footing. Even though this is never fun, it is important as it gives us a solid footing and foundation as the fireplace may be heavier. We also pour enough concrete for a sturdier base and line with the local building codes.
Building a Base and the Firebox
Once the concrete footing is cured, which might take up to 24 hours (or more), we build a level base. The base is where we then construct the firebox. The firebox can be any size, depending on what the client wants.
Building the Throat
Once the firebox is completed, and the mortar has already settled in, we now set a block around it. The throat is then built (this is where the firebox tapers in), and bricks are overhang to step out at each course. This is one of the most crucial steps and equally determines the success of the project.
Building the Flue
Here, we start to lay the liners, one by one, until they get to the desired height.
At this point, the client has chosen the stones and style of stonework to use. In this case, the thicker the stone veneer is, the easier it will be to accommodate a variety of stone sizes and shapes. Once the mortar use dries off completely, we rake it from the joints and then give it a brush to smoothen.
These steps may vary from one project to the other. They are only a skeleton that a professional would use. However, there are specifics that only experts like us will know how and when to work on them. Entrust your project to us now and make your outdoor space wonder with a stone, brick, or concrete outdoor kitchen.
