Excellent and a stepping stone for me from you.

I built a set of cabinets like these for my hunting camp in an old office trailer. it appears you made the same omission I did. The toe kick is flush with the front of the cabinets. my wife complains every time she walks up to them.

I just love it !!!!!! Can you tell me the cost of the things you had to buy to complete this? Also how big is your cover is it like a garage 1 or 2 cars?
Very impressive you should really be proud of yourself. I also live in Texas out side of Galveston.
Thanks Linda

Thank you very much for the compliments Linda, The part of the deck that has the kitchen is 12x20 with a roof over the whole thing. The total cost for materials was about 400.00.

The "point" of doin it... or one point anyways for us, is that it keeps the heat outside. Also, you can incorporate the gas and or charcoal grills in, which would of course, already be outside for exhaust.

For us though, it's about the summer heat here in South Texas. Cook an average meal and the house goes up to near 90 degrees until about 8 or 9pm.. or even later before it get's back down to 72... that's why I am working on a similar project.

Good stuff, there, coolbeans...!

Keep em coming!

Thanks for the compliment FoeHammer. I have the stove hooked up finally. I had to buy a control valve because they don't sell the thermal coupler separate (imagine that ) So it was 80.00 for it so i wanted to use it because it came from the camper .

some sugested additions
removable cover for the top of the sink = keep dirt and "stuff" out.
tarp the entire counter when it is not in use.
the tarp should cover the front of the cabinets as well

i will be building a 20'x20' gazibo that will have a fire pit in the center and
something like this on one end that will be in its own room.

Be proud of yourself, brother. Youv'e done a great job. :)

Thank you very much for the compliment . I have another instructable for which im making a utility trailer with the frame from the camper ...

Wait, what's the point of having a kitchen outside? What if it rains?

It doesn't rain on the inside of the deck under the roof

i see. thanks.
