    Ok guys I am getting ready to quote a outdoor kitchen and living space. I have never done one of these before but have always wanted to. My area this type of project is rare because not to many people spend that kind of dough on there landscaping. I have done a ton of hardscape stuff so the pavers and all that is no big deal it is just the kitchen part I am worrying about. I want to make sure I don't get in over my head. I want to provide them with the best product available and the best install as well. My reputation is everything to me so I don't want to do a poor job and hurt that. What kind of tips can you guys give me as what I need to look for and all that.

    Cambridge has some pretty descent kits for outdoor kitchens, bars. The prices are not to bad. You can definitely do a lot better with a custom design. But there's are pretty much fool proof and a easy self confidence boost.

    Yes I have built a ton of walls before but I was thinking there may be more to it than that. I know my architect told me that there were kits available but something custom would probably look nicer. But I am sure the kits would be easier and also cheaper.

    Know what your going to use for your countertop and have all of the hardware on site before you get started.
