Outside Kitchen, Fireplace, Pizza Oven, Pergola,

This is a complete outside kitchen as photos show, my work entailed everything but the stone & stucco also the counter tops, I did have help pouring the slab which is 66 ft. long & 20 ft. from the last stair riser, I did however do the bullnose brick work around the pizza oven & under the posts that rest on top of slab.
The Pizza Oven is very large, I won't go into the mechanics of building it but it is all fire brick, I did however change the stack configuration in that I moved it toward the center even though it actually is at the front, which I guess is traditional, I cut my flues at 30 degrees to go to center, it didn't look right the other way & would have been out of place in it's surroundings, mainly the roof of the house. It is also very thick in order to withstand over 800 degrees, it has 3 temperature sensors for various readings.
The fireplace I modified a little, I was worried about smoke with such a short stack coming out the front, it worked.
The slab was stained in order to mimic the house interior slab, same color.
The cabinetry I made from teak & applied coats of marine varnish, there is a sink with running water & also a garbage disposal.
These pergolas were built to blend in with the timber work outside the house, they also are octonagal, which was the theme of the house. This is a very comfortable arrangement, very warm.
There is also alot of electrical out here which I ran under slab & where needed drilled my posts through with a 10 ft bit in order to run the lighting, switches & receptacles.
The total cost of the kitchen was in the neighborhood of $60,000, this includes the pergolas, fire place & pizza oven individually the fireplace & pizza oven would run about $7,000 to $10,000 apiece.
