Summer is a great time for grilling out and having the perfect outdoor space can make your home the hot spot for the summer. Although all your need is a charcoal or propane grill and a lawn, cooking out can be much nicer with a deck or patio to designate a space for people to chat and spend time together. Create the perfect outdoor experience with these fun new additions that we can add to your outdoor space from The Construction Group.

Outdoor Cooking Stations

It's fairly simple to cook a main dish outside on the grill while side dishes are cooked indoors. A little more elaborate setup can include propane burners outside next to the grill and designated pots and pans you only use for outdoor cooking. Such an outdoor kitchen can be built into the overall deck or patio design as a permanent kitchen, meaning you don't have to worry about refilling propane tanks when using a permanent connection to a public natural gas line. A permanent outdoor kitchen also usually includes cabinetry and countertops so you can store your equipment outdoors and have a convenient working space. An even more elaborate feature is to include an outdoor sink with water connection.

Deck and Patio Design

Although an outdoor kitchen can be added to an older deck or patio, it's best to design the deck with a kitchen in mind so it can be naturally incorporated into the setup and any additional support can be built as needed as the deck is installed. Your deck can be custom designed for your needs. If you are looking for a little extra space for a big family style table, we can make that for you, or you can have a simple deck to give you more grass space. We are happy to help you design the deck or patio that best fits your family's needs.

Regardless of whether you need to add a kitchen or custom build your deck to accommodate one, it's always a good idea to discuss your plans with a licensed contractor! At The Construction Group, Inc., we can determine what will best fit your needs and get the job done just in time for the perfect summer barbecue.
