Outdoor Kitchen & Entertaining Area

This is our outdoor entertaining area . We started with a 16 x 16 deck outside the patio doors that connected to the wood framed gazebo. We lived with that for 25 years until about 4 years ago. That's when we started expanding and upgrading everything. The side burner from our old grill was recycled into the prep area to the right of the new grill.
Main deck area.
Prep & grilling area. Gazebo was bought from Lowe's several years ago.
Gazebo with extension over bar area.
Another small eating area.
We added an extension to the gazebo to cover the eating bar area. Bar top is black granite which got too hot in the sun. The new covering has helped.
Pendant lights which match the hanging light in the gazebo (also from Lowe's).
Buffet table with umbrella. The cabinet area has a sink with running water. The stainless steel doors were repurposed from an old grill. We still need to install cultured stone to the Hardie cement board.
Pennsylvania blue stone walkway.

Conversation area under wood framed gazebo.
Plans are to add an outdoor fireplace....eventually.

    The gazebo you got from Lowes, do you leave it up all year long? Is it a permanent fixture on your deck? I have seen those at Lowes, I would like to have one . I wasn't sure if it was something you leave up all the time.
