Making Your Grill Look Built In
About 3 years ago I built a structure/cabinet around my grill to make it look built in since the $3500 price tag for a "real" built in was out of the question. I finally got around to making some changes since the wood did not hold up the first time. Trial and error is my DIY philosophy because I am not a contractor~just a woman with ideas. This time I did it myself to avoid the hassle of trying to explain my idea and now my grill looks just the way I want~built in.

Fastnacht Shavout on Sep 22, 2013i think you did an excellent job, and i like that fact that it is homemade and you didn't rely on anyone else to give you what you want. you truly show, "Where there is a will, there is a way".
Marti Biegler on Sep 23, 2013We just did a similar outside grill area, but I need to warn you about yours. If you read the back of the grill, it will state (or should) that it needs to be 18 inches away from combustible materials. That being said, we did ours with metal studs. The area around the grill was done with concrete board and anything wood was kept far away. I stuccoed the inside area and on the back we did stacked faux stone with real stone at the top. While yours does look lovely, if it goes up in flames, your insurance will probably not cover it.
The Garden Frog with C Renee on Sep 24, 2013@Marti Biegler It has been there for 3 years and I use it at least 3 times a week. I actually used durock on the back and turned on the grill to find out where the heat comes out. The grill also sits up so the heat and if there were to be any flames do not heat up any of the area.
