Ashley and Autumn Zellner’s porch isn’t large enough for the outdoor kitchen they want to add. The Today’s Homeowner crew help them enlarge their patio space, so we can create an outdoor kitchen that ties in with the house’s original construction.

It’s a big job that takes us two episodes to complete.

Here’s what we tackle in part one:

  • Pour two concrete slabs
  • Add brick rowlock border to the patio
  • Build the frame and doors for the cabinets
  • Split the bricks for the cabinet facade
  • Construct a small fence

Watch the Outdoor Kitchen: Part 1 episode article above for details on these projects.
