Outdoor Kitchen and Bar

Our first outdoor kitchen and bar. Poured concrete counter top done in house. Custom powder coated aluminum overhead, custom stainless trim, kickplate, and red egg insert. It has 2 under-cap lights on the ends and one under the bar overhang. We are just waiting for the 12v pendant lights to arrive. Fun project.

The kitchen looks awesome. The stone slabs (looks like NY blue?) joints look a little janky though

Here are a few pictures of a kitchen area and bar we did last year. Pretty nice setup with the pool, kitchen, bar area and lake.

Poly sand wasn't swept in when pic was taken. So now that it's been swept in, I think it's safe to say it's less "janky". LOL I'm 26 but having never heard that word before, you have successfully made me feel old.

Beautiful. Did you use mortar in the joints for the counter top? Also, did you put a sealer on the counter?

I'm 24, maybe it's a NY thing. I meant more of the joint lines not lining up when looking across the patio. Just seems like the stone wanders or the sizes were irregular etc. but the bar looks great. Very different which is hard to find these days

Haha yea i hear ya. We had a rough time with those slabs - some had tapered widths up to 1.5" from one end to the other, and thicknesses tapered too. Thanks RJ
