That looks like an awsome island. I'd like to see the finished project with the slate top.

Never seen that kind of steel studs at Lowes or HD.
Course, I wasn't looking for them either.

The only thing I was wondering about is rusting from rainwater getting under the frame.
It looks galvanized but over time even galvanized will rust, especially where it has been cut.

But I could be wrong about the rust, who knows?
I've never used steel studs for anything.

I am building one just like this. Stud work is done, and I am sheathing it right now. I will post pics if I get a chance.

There is a large community of folks that build grill islands with steel stud. Once you figure it out, it is easy.

Come on, it has only taken me 2 years and I am 70% done "already"... :lol:

That was a very enjoyable use of 15 min. Anytime you can stick new ideas in your head for later, is a good thing (Martha Mod).

I've seen this link before, here or the Bullet site, I can't recall.

I'm looking to build a covered storage shed/BBQ area/outdoor Mancave. Any links or sites would be appreciated.

Right now I'm just looking at Sheds/outbuilding designs with additions. HELP MEEEEEE!

That's one hell of a nice island. I might have used more of the left hand cabinet for usable vs dead space. It looks like you could double the drawer area & still have room for a small fridge under there. But that's just me :biggrin:.

Wow, I can't wait to see the finished product. Nice work, you would never know that you have not built anything like that before. Great read by the way I enjoyed it.

The island is great ... but, is that a glorified range-top in that poor grill?

I have always wanted a nice outdoor kitchen. I have even gathered some of the material. Mine will have a wood burning pizza oven. The only thing that holds me back is that I want to build mine in the house I will retire in. I can not imagine building one for someone else.

I was planning on waiting until the kids got through college but I have been chomping at the bit lately and thinking maybe doing it a few years sooner. Then you go and post those pictures and get me going again. That said, just do a search on outdoor kitchens on google and you will be overwhelmed. This company has nice nice plans which would be a starting point for what I want. http://www.monsterconstructors.com/dfw-outdoor-kitchens.htm
