I have been thinking of upgrade my backyard entertainment area and build a outdoor BBQ kitchen for quite some time, last year I finally decided to put it in action.
Things have been done so far:
To be done
Anyone has any suggestions and/or previous experiences, I'd love to hear. Thank you.
have a look at klevaklip adjustable joist support. WIll need a concrete base though.
Welcome to Workshop @thebugles and thanks for joining in the discussion. I'm looking forward to reading about your own projects and plans.
@raymao268: You might be interested in this previous discussion on Workshop - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Outdoor-Living/Raised-Tiled-backyard-entertainment-area-what-options/... where @AshY had a similar paved space to work with.
Thanks Jason for sharing the similar post. I will have a look later on, hopefully can get some hints from it.
This might be a very obvious suggestion, but why not lift up and remove all the pavers to give you more clearance @raymao268?
Thanks for the suggestion, have taken this option into consideration before, but have decided not to do that for a couple of reasons:
1. Obviously it will involve lot heavy work to remove over 40M2 of paves.
2. More importantly, it will change the water drainage situation, and if it is not being done correctly, will cause long term water problem which I don't want that.
Yeah, removing pavers is a pain. We removed a lot of old concrete pavers at our place and am glad to be rid of them!
Not sure about your second point though. Would have thought that removing the pavers wouldn't affect your drainage, or actually improve things.
Decking is almost completed, final clean up and decking oil to be done. The kitchen is fully installed and connected. Getting ready for Christmas, Yah!
It's looking great @raymao268. I'm sure it will be a great space for entertaining and relaxing.
Thanks for sharing your update. It must be very exciting to be so close to finishing.
